Matcha is energizing and delicious, making it an ideal alternative to coffee! This antioxidant-packed powder made of stoneground green tea leaves also has calming effects - a win-win! While you might be familiar with matcha in tea form...we're going to share a few unique ways to incorporate this special ingredient into your cooking. Vanilla Matcha Cupcakes anyone?! Whether you're an avid matcha consumer or a newbie to this superfood, these recipes are a must-try and will surely be a hit for any palette!
We're starting it off with a crowd favorite - the Iced Matcha Latte! This nourishing and invigorating drink gets its creaminess from oat milk, sweetness from maple syrup, and the delicious flavor and zing from matcha. It's incredibly easy to make in your Almond Cow, and makes for the perfect pick-me-up any time of day!
If you're looking for a refreshing alternative to regular iced tea, this Matcha Mint version is it. The combination of lime, matcha powder, fresh mint, and agave gives it a perfectly balanced flavor profile. You can even remove the agave if you'd prefer an unsweetened version! Either way, mix up a batch of this delicious beverage in your Almond Cow for your next get-together and watch your guests be delighted.
Cupcakes are always a crowd-pleaser, so why not mix it up with this matcha variation?! This healthier version of traditional cupcakes are made using the leftover almond pulp from making almond milk in your Almond Cow (say almond 3 times fast). They're gluten-free and sweetened with dates and bananas. The matcha is added to the creamy frosting for a delicately delicious surprise.
The final recipe in our roundup is this incredible Matcha Tart. In case you didn't know, matcha and chocolate pair wonderfully together, so the cacao powder in the crust makes this extra yummy. The cashew pulp from making cashew milk in your Almond Cow is used in the filling and adds to the creamy consistency. For how impressive this dessert looks, you won't believe how easy it is to make!
