1 Tablespoon brown rice nectar
1 teaspoon 100% pure cocoa powder

I cannot stand the taste of flax seeds. But, it's the only source of omega-3 I can afford, so I always add it to my oatmeal. : (
To get rid of the taste I’ve tried adding vanilla essence, cinnamon, ACV, and dried cranberries but either they don't completely cover up the taste OR it ends in disaster.
Today I tried cocoa powder, and it worked wonderfully (and the oatmeal ends up tasting like hot chocolate).
For milk tea I steeped blueberry-green tea and sweetened it with a package of stevia and a Tablespoons of organic vanilla soymilk.
