Organic matcha review

Friday, April 04, 2014

Recently the kind people at Kiss Me Organics sent me a bag of their organic matcha green tea powder to try:

I am a huge fan of matcha but haven’t ever made anything with it (other than tea) at home. In the past I have found good quality matcha to be really expensive and I haven’t been willing to use large amounts of it to bake, etc. This matcha is more affordable ($25 for 4 ounces on Amazon with free shipping for Prime members), so it is a better choice if you want to experiment a little!

First, I made a matcha latte:

I started with 1 teaspoon of matcha in my bowl...

…I added 1/4 cup of water (hot but NOT boiling- boiling water makes bitter matcha!) and whisked it until it was frothy...

…then I added about 1/2 cup of hot vanilla almond milk and a tiny bit of raw honey.

So good!

(Note: my milk frother did not create foam with the almond milk that I used. If you’re a big fan of the foam, soy or dairy milk may work better for you).

Next creation: matcha mint soft serve!

Several years ago there was a restaurant in my city that had a matcha mint blended drink on the menu. Of all of the wonderful things in their restaurant, that is the one that I miss the most since they closed! Using that idea as inspiration, I made some matcha mint soft serve.

(Recipe: Process 1 frozen banana, 3 large dollops of plain yogurt or a splash of milk, a dash of vanilla or vanilla flavored Stevia, 3-4 fresh mint leaves, and 1 teaspoon of matcha in the food processor until it is the consistency of soft serve ice cream. Serve topped with raw cacao nibs for extra yum!)

Thank you to Kiss Me Organics for the chance to review this matcha. I am looking forward to trying some new recipes- maybe some cupcakes next!

*Legal stuff: I received a free package of this match for review purposes. I was not compensated in any other way for this post.
