Matcha Green tea can be used in many different ways. From smoothies to a Matcha Tea Latte.
Matcha has already shown to be at least 3 times more powerful and rich in health benefits than 1 cup of green tea!
It's no surprise that we are already on the hunt for new ways to incorporate more matcha into our diets and lives! My favorite is a Matcha Tea Latte!
Rich in healthy compounds like EGCG and amino acid L-theanine(which helps prevent cancers, help with weight loss and improve your heart health), here are some ways to make sure you incorporate more matcha into your diet for a better life!
1. Matcha sprinkled on your food
This is perfect for breakfast time! Think granola, yogurts, cereals and even pancakes. Team this up with a sprinkling of your favorite nuts or fruits on your breakfast goods, and you will have amped up the health benefits of the first meal of the day! As with all these recipes, make sure you are using a high quality, organic matcha like this one HERE.
2. Matcha blended into smoothies
A matcha smoothie is a perfect meal not just for breakfast, but any time of the day! It is quick, easy, tasty and can be full of amazing healthy products to increase your body's health. Add 1 cup of almond, coconut, or cow's milk to one banana, 5 ice cups and 1 teaspoon of matcha powder. Blend and consume. Keep it simple or add in extra ingredients - but this one is sure to keep your energy levels up all day!
3. Freeze matcha for a delicious dessert
If you are an ice cream junkie but are trying to get fit, and in shape, this recipe is for you. The consistency of this is similar to ice cream and hits your sweet spot without ruining your diet. Not only is it good for you, but it is also dead simple to make. Blend frozen bananas and a teaspoon of matcha powder - as well as being good for you; the matcha powder turns the iced dessert into a bright, vibrant green!
4. Spike your coffee
Coffee lovers rejoice! You can now bump up the nutritional benefits of your morning cup of coffee by adding matcha powder. Replace sugar with a teaspoon of matcha and stir. Watch your java go from brown to green, giggle to yourself about how silly a green cup of coffee looks and then enjoy consuming all the added benefits.
5. Infuse baked goods
Love to bake? Try adding matcha to your baked goods like bagels, bread, doughnuts, and cakes. The color, of course, will be a super green to match the superfood inside. When used in a cake it is virtually tasteless, so it is a great natural alternative to food colors.
No matter how you consume it, make sure to incorporate matcha into your daily diet as the health benefits of this super powder are too good to pass up on!
