I’m hooked on Matcha at the moment as you can tell from my previous recipe posts for a Matcha Smoothie Bowl and Matcha Latte.  Matcha is a nutrient dense powdered green tea from Japan which has been the heart of the Japanese tea ceremonies since the 12th Century but only recently gained popularity in the western world.  It’s bursting with nutrients and antioxidants which calms and relaxes, boosts brain power, fights diseases and boosts metabolism.

There are two types of Matcha – one for cooking (Culinary Matcha) and one for drinking as tea (Ceremonial Matcha).  It’s really important for recipes like these to buy Culinary Matcha, as Ceremonial Matcha is really expensive and is only meant for drinking as a tea, whisked with hot water.

As Matcha comes in powdered form, it’s so versatile and can be added to lots of recipes when blending, baking and cooking.  My favourite way to enjoy it is as a Latte instead of coffee.

As Matcha is not readily available in supermarkets, I buy mine directly from Deliciously Matcha.  Their prices are reasonable and they offer free shipping Australia wide.  They are offering Thermomix Diva readers a 10% discount for a limited time only with discount code: MATCHADISCOUNT.  Their website is www.deliciouslymatcha.com.
