What would a tea party be, without something warm and filling? I present to you my warm, sweet and tangy berry oats that is infused with Five Roses mixed berries tea.
This vibrant red berry oats is delicious, full of flavour and requires minimal effort to make. It is bursting with fresh berries and a sprinkle of cashew nuts for a bit of a bite and crunch. Mornings have just become a whole lot tastier.
This recipe is easily adjustable. You could use any combination of berries you desire or swap out the berries for any other fruit such as banana, mango or peaches. I used frozen berries but you could definitely use fresh berries, if that is what you have in hand.
I love the fact that oats is healthy, hearty and filling just the perfect way to start your day. This oats recipe gets its powerful berry flavour from a combination of Five Roses mixed berries tea and the frozen berries. The mixed berries tea compliments the berry oats effortlessly. The five Roses infusion tea reminds me so much of a summer berry pudding. The tea is refreshing, has a striking red colour and is jam-packed with berry flavours. What is not to love about this tea?
This oats is a quick and easy breakfast that can be made in under 10 minutes. You could even pre-cook your oats the night before, reheat it the next day and top it with the stewed berries and nuts. There you go, a simple, yummy and no fuss mixed berry breakfast.
