Limited edition teas are popping up everywhere in stores, and here’s a creative way to use those teas than in just plain water. In this case, we went extra basic in terms of flavor and number of ingredients with a pumpkin spiced tea infused oatmeal. You can always replace the pumpkin spice tea with another flavor of tea.
This recipe only requires 4 main ingredients that you can feel good about eating.
Cashew milk is slightly thicker than almond milk, and a good nondairy alternative but still has a good dose of vitamins and a roughly around 30% calcium. Oatmeal is a low cholesterol heart healthy food that is filled with fiber that will keep you sustained for the day. Tea is just good tasting, especially when it’s pumpkin flavored. Stevia is a good alternative for sweeteners because it’s natural and doesn’t raise blood sugar levels.
