Turmeric Pumpkin Chai Oatmeal

Yield: 6 servings

Ingredients:  • 1 TBS Turmeric Tonic herbal chai tea (loose) •  2 cups almond milk • 1 tsp honey • 1/2 ripe banana • 1/2 of a 15oz can (about 2/3 cup) pumpkin • 1 cup rolled oats •  2 TBS hemp hearts or chia seeds (or a combination) • 1/4 cup golden raisins (optional) • honey or maple to sweeten, if desired

Instructions: Stir the herbal chai blend and honey into the almond milk, over medium heat, in a heavy saucepan, until well blended. Increase the heat and continue to stir, up until the milk mixture begins to come to a boil. Remove from heat, cover, and let steep for 8 – 10 minutes.

Mash the banana. Add pumpkin, seeds, raisins (optional) and combine well. Stir in the oatmeal, and transfer this mixture to a 32 oz mason jar.

When the turmeric chai milk has finished steeping, pour it through a sieve into the mason jar with oatmeal mixture. Mix carefully. Close the lidded jar and place in refrigerator overnight.

The oatmeal is delicious served as it is, as well as with fruits, nuts, or more seeds added. You may choose to sweeten with additional honey or some maple syrup.
