I love chocolate and coconut. Yum!
1-13.5 oz can coconut milk or 1 1/2 c. milk of choice
2 T. loose leaf tea with cocoa nibs or cocoa. (Good choices from Healing House Herbs would be Coconut Black Chai, Black Chocolate Coconut, Gingerbread Black, Swiss Hot Chocolate.)
2 T. maple syrup or honey
2/3 c. rolled oats
2 T. Chia seeds
2 T. coconut flakes + more for topping
2 T. slivered almonds optional
2 T. dried cherries, cranberries or raisins
Prep the night before you plan to eat the overnight oats.
In a small saucepan stir loose leaf tea into milk. As soon as mixture boils, remove from heat, cover, and steep for 10-15 minutes. Strain and discard solids. Add maple syrup and stir well.
Toss remaining ingredients together in small bowl and add to brewed milk-tea and stir until everything is coated. Divide mixture into two small servings and cover. Refrigerate.
Serve cold the next morning sprinkled with coconut flakes and shaved chocolate, or cocoa nibs. If the mixture is too thick, thin with milk of choice.
