When you order your first bag of Kiss Me Organics Matcha off of Amazon.ca or Amazon.com you’ll also receive a PDF recipe book full of amazing recipes that go way beyond tea and smoothies! I’m talking mojitos, green Russians, frosting, truffles, waffles and a variety of dips. I had no idea that matcha could be integrated into so many different foods.
Not everyone loves a cup of green tea, but did you know that:
One glass of matcha green tea is equal to 10 glasses of regular green tea as far as antioxidants and nutrients. ~Kiss Me Organics
Since you can incorporate matcha into everything from your night cap to your breakfast buffet, you’ll have no trouble fitting this healthy dose of antioxidants and nutrients into your routine.
Here’s the recipe I tried:
In the past, I’d just sprinkled my matcha straight into my smoothies. (Note that you need very little matcha for one serving, so one bag will go a long way!) Kiss Me Organics recommends whisking your matcha with some warm water to make a paste before adding it to the recipe:
The resulting smoothie is very tasty. One thing I appreciate about adding matcha to smoothies, besides the health benefits and energy boost, is that it cuts down the sweetness of the fruits. Drinking a matcha smoothie at 3pm (my usual time for a cup of orange pekoe or coffee) leaves me feeling refreshed, without the usual caffeine crash.
The next recipe I’m going to try is Matcha-Mole… yup… guacamole with matcha!
If you’re curious about adding matcha to your diet, I recommend Kiss Me Organics if only for the amazing compilation of recipes to try out. (Plus, they just sent all their customers a new bonus recipe for Matcha Nut Ice Cream!)
