Matcha Talkin’ About

Happy Wednesday everyone, sorry about that title I can’t help how hilarious I am.

A few weeks ago Kiss Me Organics contacted me about testing out their Matcha Green Tea Powder. I’d never heard of the stuff so I googled it and found out that it’s some sort of interesting ceremonial tea with loads of health benefits, I was definitely excited to test it out.

What Is Matcha?

Matcha green tea powder is a powdery substance that can be used in several ways, from drinking it as a tea beverage to making green tea flavored baked goods. According to Kiss Me Organics their organic matcha powder boasts the following benefits:

  • Lasting energy, increased focus
  • Metabolism boost
  • Improved skin health
  • Tons of antioxidants

The powder can be used in baking, smoothies, tea, lattes, and basically anything your heart desires. When I first got it I was worried that there were very specific ways to use it but luckily Kiss Me Organics also sent a PDF cookbook will all kinds of recipes for things like waffles, tea scones, pizza, spinach dip, and the list goes on. There are even a few cocktails, high five.

The way I have used it most is in a sort of banana smoothie concoction. It’s fast, easy, and I almost always have the ingredients on hand.

Smoothie Ingredients

Throw everything in a blender and let ‘er rip.

This smoothie has become one of my favorite things to drink after a morning workout that I can throw together to refresh myself. I didn’t crop the photo above so you can see my weird compression sock-ness. This smoothie even comes before a sweet, sweet shower. There are also a ton of other recipes in the cookbook that I can’t wait to test out!
