Matcha Me Up

Do you all know matcha? If not, I would like to introduce you to my new best friend. We first became friends in February. 

I had a New Years Resolution this past January to drink less coffee. In my pre-matcha days, I added way too much brown sugar, cream, and all of the deliciousness that makes coffee really good. 

So I did research and found out about matcha. Matcha is a ceremonial Japanese green tea powder that is packed with caffeine, antioxidants, and detoxifying properties for the body. 

My mind said, “say no more; what a perfect substitute to replace a coffee addiction.”

I browsed Amazon, purchased DoMatcha, and looked up recipes. The classic way to make matcha is to boil a cup of water, add 1 or 2 tsps of matcha, and finish up with a bamboo whisk. 

But I must say once I nailed the below Soy Matcha Latte recipe, that’s when matcha and I became besties. I recommend this to everyone who wants to replace coffee or just add a new morning and afternoon pick-me up! 

What I use: 

  • 1/2 cup boiling water
  • 1 1/2 tsp of matcha (personal favorite: DoMatcha organic)
  • 3/4 cup steamed soy milk
  • 1 tsp honey (2 tsp if you want more sweetness) 

What I do: 

  • Boil 1/2 cup water and add to blender once ready
  • Add matcha to blender and turn on for 1 minute
  • While blending, lightly steam soy milk on stove top 
  • Once matcha and water are blended, add soy milk
  • For sweetness, add honey to the mixture
  • Blend for another minute and pour into favorite mug
  • Drink until done! 

Has anyone else made matcha, likes matcha or knows more about how to prepare matcha? I love to talk matcha!
