Green with Envy: My Organic Matcha Recipes & Review

 I had the pleasure to try and review Organic Matcha- Green Tea Powder by Kiss Me organics.  Matcha is a strong antioxidant, it generates new brain cells which in turn helps to improve both short and long term memory.  Matcha can also help boost your metabolism, and improve your skin health.  You really don't need much, only 1/2-1 teaspoon is recommended daily.  With green tea powder you can bake with it, or add it to lattes and smoothies.  You know I love my smoothies, so that's what I decided to make.  Here are my 2 recipes that I tried...

Green Tea Smoothie serves 1
1/2 c plain Greek yogurt
2 tbsp Agave syrup
1/4 c coconut water
1/2 tsp green tea powder
1/2 c ice
1/4 green apple, chopped

Fruit & Green Tea Smoothie serves 1
1/2 c plain Greek yogurt
2 tbsp agave syrup
1/2 tsp greentea powder
1/4 c coconut water
1 handful spinach
1/2 c blueberries
Few ice cubs

How did they taste? Well, at first, I didn't know what to think... Because the green tea flavor is strong. My next smoothie, I scaled the green tea powder back some, and I enjoyed it.  As the week went on! I added more powder.  So, my recommendation is, if trying it out for the first time use just a sprinkle then add more per your taste buds.  I did find having one of my green tea smoothies seemed to help get me over my afternoon slump, which was a welcomed change. I only tried a smoothie a day for a week, so not sure if it made a big change to my metabolism... But hey... Anything can help!  One day, I will try to bake with it... Green tea lemon muffins sounds yummy... Look for that recipe in the future.  I encourage you to try Organic Matcha Green Tea powder! But remember, you only need a little bit to help kick start your metabolism and to get a full dose of antioxidants.

  2. Good day! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site?

    I'm getting sick and tired of Wordpress because I've had problems
    with hackers and I'm looking at alternatives for
    another platform. I would be great if you could point me
    in the direction of a good platform.
