This recipe is a super energising way to start the day. The porridge oats are full of slow release complex carbohydrates and the coconut is full of energy yielding medium chain fatty acids combined. Matcha green tea is extremely high in anti-oxidants particularly catechins, which have been shown to have cancer prevention properties.  It also contains an amino acid called  L-Theanine which works on your GABA neurotransmitter pathway giving the effect of enhanced mood, improved memory, and even promotes better concentration. L-Theanine in combination with the natural caffeine found in green tea can create an energy boost of up to 6 hours.
