Add colour, flavour and a dosage of antioxidants to all your foods and drinks in the form of ‘matcha’, or in other words, green tea powder.
The world is going mad for all things matcha and everyone is looking for green tea powder recipes to add this wonderfully healthy ingredient to anything and everything they can imagine.
From chocolate chip sponge cakes to green tea popsicles to matcha curry and even green tea laced burgers to so much more – if there is a recipe that can have matcha incorporated in it to add oodles of flavour and a tablespoon of antioxidant based health, then you can bet your morning cuppa tea that people are doing it.
Here are a few ways you can boost the nutrition and change the flavour of your regular meals:
1. Jazz up your lemonade.
Turn your classic lemonade green and fun by adding a teaspoon of matcha along with some mint leaves. Stir & serve with extra ice.
2. Dress up your granola.
Tone down the sweetness of store-bought granola with a quarter of a teaspoon of matcha in a bowl, or add it to the dry ingredients in your homemade version.
3. Spike Your Coffee
Forget about sugar and add high-quality electric or vibrant green matcha to your daily mug of java to sass things up. Plus, as a bonus you make your coffee much more healthier this way.
4. Freeze Your Popsicles
Add green tea powder to low-fat yogurt and blend it to make some amazing antioxidant-packed popsicles for a refreshing treat.
5. Spread it in Your Sandwiches
For a unique kick in your mundane burgers and sandwiches, spread a creamy spread made with a teaspoon of matcha with kale and walnuts in your food processor.
