Thirsty Thursday calls for a refreshing, immune-boosting drink you can easily whip up at home.
Fruit-infused Iced Matcha
Fruit-infused Iced Matchas are SO easy to make and are a great way to stay hydrated while reaping the incredible health benefits (and natural sweetness) of your favorite fruits, veggies, and herbs.
- 1 tsp Barista Edition Ceremonial Matcha (per drink)
- Your favorite produce (fruit, veggies, herbs). For the drinks photographed, I used the following ingredients specifically for their immune-boosting benefits:
- Kiwi berries
- Feel free to use fruits/herbs you have readily available in your home. If you need inspiration, these fruits/herbs are some wonderful options to choose from: lemon, orange, apple, strawberries, mango, pineapple, watermelon, peach, ginger, turmeric root, thyme, rosemary.
- Prep your fruit/herbs! Wash and chop your fruit, veggies, and herbs.
- Fill a large carafe or container with slices of your produce.
- ill the carafe to the top with filtered water. Allow your water and ingredients to infuse for a minimum of 5 hours. I prefer to allow my water infusions to sit in the fridge overnight.
- Place a few ice cubes into your glass. Use a spoon to scoop out some of the sliced fruits/veggies from your carafe and place them into your glass. Fill the glass with your infused water (leaving about an inch of room for your matcha shot)
- Prep your matcha shot in a small mason jar. Sift your matcha into 2 oz of water, place the lid on your mason jar and shake for 15 seconds. Note: If you will be serving multiple drinks, I'd recommend making a larger batch of matcha shots (1 tsp matcha + 2 oz of water multiplied by however many drinks you're making)
- Top off your fruit-infused water with the matcha shot and enjoy!
