10 Ways to use Matcha!

Have you tried Matcha yet? Matcha is a green tea powder that is loaded with antioxidants. I was lucky enough to be able to try Kiss Me Organics Organic Matcha Powder

Usually I just dissolve the green tea powder in some ice water and enjoy a refreshing drink. But this time I decided to experiment with some additional ways to use matcha. 

  1. Adding it to coffee instead of using a sweetener. It won’t be as sweet as sugar, but it is subtly sweet. Plus it brings those all important antioxidants early in the morning!
  2. Granola. Add some matcha to your granola! It adds a little sweet taste.
  3. Popsicles!!!! Add some matcha and water into popsicle molds and freeze them. This is super tasty and as soon as summer comes, you’ll be loving the refreshment!
  4. Miso soup. I love ordering miso soup from the local Japanese restaurant, but it seems to either be bland or too salty! Adding matcha will give it a little more flavor and reduce the saltiness!
  5. Enjoy it on  bagel! Mix some matcha into your favorite cream cheese and spread it over your bagel!
  6. Mojitos or other fruity alcoholic drinks! Just mix it right into the shaker. Go on, add some healthiness to that drink!
  7. Smoothies! Mix it up with a banana, cup of almond milk, a little bit of honey and some matcha. 
  8. Green tea latte, just like Starbucks! Combine 1tsp matcha powder with 2 oz of hot water, stir. Then pour 6 ounces of steamed milk over it!
  9. Spice Rub: Combine 1 tsp matcha, 1/1 teaspoon each black pepper, salt, ginger, thyme, and chili. Add 1/8 teaspoon cumin. Store in a container for up to 6 months~
  10. Freeze it! Put some matcha in ice trays, fill with water, and use in drinks to cool them off!
