Know Your Matcha?!


I've been coveting matcha green tea for a while so when the opportunity came up to try some ceremonial grade matcha from Kiss Me Organics, who I am not to give it a go! I've seen people talking about the many benefits of matcha and taking month long challenges to boost their energy!

Why Matcha Green Tea?!

 - The nutrients in matcha are equivalent to 10 cups of steeped green tea

The time of day that I need a boost most is in the morning. So I looked up recipes to try and opted for the 'Almond Milk Matcha Green Tea Latte' - warming on the current chilly winter mornings!


Almond Milk Matcha Green Tea Latte


Ingredients | 3/4 cup almond milk, 1/4 cup water, 1 tsp matcha powder, agave syrup to taste

Method | stir in matcha powder to 1/4 cup of water and stir till smooth, whilst you warm your almond milk (3/4 cup). Add almond milk to matcha mixture and stir. Add agave syrup (or sweetener of choice) to taste (I used about 1/2 tsp).




So now it's time to get experimenting! I've been on Pinterest and seen all sorts...from face masks to smoothies...both of which I will be trying and sharing with you! I'm currently on Whole30 though so no baking for the time being!

But in the meantime, if you have a great recipe which features matcha, please share the link / recipe with me below in the comments!

  1. I'm currently doing the 14 Day Matcha Challenge with TeaPigs and I've definitely noticed an increase in energy since taking it.

    The Matcha Latte sounds great and I'm going to try it tomorrow I think rather than just have the usual shot! :)
