    Matcha Recipes

    Watermelon Water + Matcha Cold-Brew

    Watermelon Water Matcha Cold Brew

    And to finish out this matcha cold-brew journey we've been on, I bring you my personal favorite: the watermelon matcha! Possibly the most refreshing and tasty beverage I have ever come across.

    Below I've included two recipes, a "quick" version and a "fancy" version - which you make depends on who you're serving to and how much time you have. For my daily fix, I definitely opt for the "quick" version :)

    Ingredients:

    Preparation (quick version):
    You won't get the layered effect like in the picture, but it still tastes great!

    1. Add ingredients to a shaker bottle (add the watermelon water first, then the matcha to avoid any sticking to the bottom) and shake vigorously until well mixed.
    2. Pour over ice and enjoy!

    Preparation (fancy version):
    Wow your friends with beautiful layers...it's actually not that hard to do.

    1. In a separate cup, mix up the matcha with about 1/2 cup of cold water, either by shaking or using a whisk.
    2. In your serving glass, add ice and the watermelon water.
    3. Slowly pour the matcha tea over top of the watermelon water (it helps to pour it over the back of a spoon)...and voila, beautiful layers!
    4. Garnish with a wedge of watermelon if desired.

    If you're feeling *really* fancy, you can make your own watermelon water.

    So last week's matcha + coconut water was just the beginning of all sorts of delicious and refreshing matcha cold-brew combos. And low and behold just a day or two later Starbucks announced they're serving another one of our favorites: Matcha Lemonade!

    We hear their's pretty tasty...but why overpay when you can make an even better quality one...sweetened to your own tastes!

    Ingredients:

    Preparation:

    1. Add ingredients to a shaker bottle (add the lemonade first, then the matcha to avoid any sticking to the bottom) and shake vigorously until well mixed.
    2. Pour over ice. Optionally garnish with lemons or mint leaves if you're feeling fancy. Enjoy!

    And if you want to get really chef-y, try making your own lemonade with fresh lemons!

    Coconut Water + Matcha Cold-Brew

    Summer is almost here! And the weather is definitely starting to heat up. Few things are more refreshing than iced tea drinks, and matcha really lets us get creative with them.

    There's nothing magical about "cold-brewing" matcha—it simply means you shake up the matcha powder with a cold liquid so that it never touches any heat. You can cold-brew matcha with just about *anything* (juices, milks, sparkling beverages, even other teas), and over the next few weeks we'll share some of our favorites.

    First up...coconut water!

    Ingredients:

    Preparation:

    1. Add ingredients to a shaker bottle (add the coconut water first, then the matcha to avoid any sticking to the bottom) and shake vigorously until well mixed.
    2. Pour over ice and enjoy!

    Shaking is a fantastic way to get matcha mixed...so good in fact that you don't even need to sift the matcha prior to shaking to avoid clumps!

    Matcha, Greens, & Almond Butter Smoothie

    Recipe Credit: @sapiditybysanz

    A couple weeks ago we shared this gorgeous photo from @sapiditybysanz ...and I can't help but share her recipe that goes with it.

    She discovered what I had found myself when experimenting with smoothie recipes—matcha and almond butter work incredibly well together! The richness of the almond butter mellows out the matcha's bitter notes.

    Add some greens and coconut to the mix and you've got a tasty, satisfying, energizing treat! Check it out:

    Ingredients:

    • 1.5 cups of milk (I recommend almond or coconut!)
    • Handful of kale
    • Handful of spinach
    • 1 tsp matcha (culinary grade)
    • 1 heaping Tbsp almond butter
    • Handful of shredded coconut

    Preparation:

    1. Blend all ingredients on high in your blender until smooth.
    2. Optionally top with shredded coconut.

    Killer start to your morning or great mid-afternoon pick me up!
