    SELF-CARE FIRST: DIY #JadeLeafMatcha Bath Salts

    I had SO MATCHA fun with this self-care DIY!

    Matcha Bath Salts are a part of my self-care regimen. In this fast-paced world, I often find that I need moments to slow down and disconnect. My favorite way to do this is by running a hot bath and unwinding in a matcha salt bath — matcha is my happy place. I intentionally use ingredients that have beneficial properties for your skin (like matcha and dead sea salt), while magnesium and lavender essential oil promotes deep relaxation. The rose petals are just a nice touch, because… why not??

    Ingredients:

     

    Directions:

    1. Place Dead Sea salt and magnesium flakes in a medium-sized bowl
    2. Add 3 tsp of our Supplement Grade Matcha and mix thoroughly to evenly coat the salt and magnesium flakes
    3. Add drops of lavender essential oil into the mixture. Stir to spread the oils to each granule of salt/magnesium
    4. Stop and smell the lavender. Take a deep breath in, breathe out… okay, let’s continue
    5. Sprinkle in dried rose petals/buds and stir gently — it’s totally okay if some of the petals break off from the bud
    6. Voila! You now have the perfect blend of matcha bath salts to #treatyourself or your matcha bae to a relaxing bath. This can also be stored in an air-tight container or mason jar. I also love traveling with a tiny jar of this blend to treat myself to a salt bath when on the go because #selfcarematters.

     


    Using this matcha bath salt blend:

    1. We recommend using 1/2 cup of this blend in a hot bath — feel free to add more if you wish
    2. Dissolve the salt blend in the warm/hot water
    3. Get some towels ready! Depending on how much matcha you used, you may want to refrain from using white towels 
    4. Once finished, drain your bathtub immediately. Spray with all-purpose cleaner and scrub-a-dub-dub any matcha residue off of your tub

     

    Don’t forget to set the tone:

    • Dim the lights (I prefer to turn the lights off completely and bath in candlelight)
    • Play your #selflove playlist or relaxing mediation music or read a book
    • Bring a little bubbly with you. Use one of our Single Serve Sticks and stir it into a glass of white wine or a drink of your choice.
    • Fill the space with what you love; snacks, chocolate, place a laptop on the counter to Netflix and Chill… I love filling the space with my favorite crystals

     

    Fun facts about the ingredients we used in this blend:

    • Matcha is known to have anti-inflammatory properties and can reduce the redness of skin conditions like acne and rosacea.
    • Dead Sea Salt contains 21 minerals that include magnesium, calcium, bromide, sodium, zinc, and potassium. These minerals are known to detoxify and cleanse our bodies.
    • Magnesium is known to improve skin hydration, decrease inflammation, has stress-relieving properties, and improves sleep.
    • Lavender essential oil is known to have anti-inflammatory properties for treating skin conditions topically, whereas its fragrance when used in aromatherapy induces deep sleep, relieves stress, and reduces anxiety.

    DELISH Matcha Mochi Pancakes — gluten-free!

     

    Matcha Mochi Pancakes

    Do you know what makes a matcha lover super happy? Waking up to matcha.

    Nothing beats breakfast in bed, especially when it’s made with SO MATCHA love. We played around with this Japanese-inspired matcha mochi pancake recipe that we hope you and your matcha bae will enjoy.

     

    What is mochi?

    Mochi is a Japanese dish (often times made into desserts) that is made of sweet rice powder, it has a soft and chewy texture.

    This recipe is gluten-free, refined sugar-free, and completely free of partially hydrogenated vegetable oils. I’ve included links to the exact brands I used in this recipe. To make this recipe more accessible, I've included ingredient alternatives for those who don't mind a little gluten, refined sugar, and refined oil in their lives.

     

    Ingredients:

    ‧ 3-4 tsp Supplement Grade Matcha or Premium Culinary Grade Matcha (for those of you that prefer a stronger matcha taste, feel free to add more matcha to taste)

    ‧ 3/4 cup Bob’s Red Mill Paleo Baking Flour (or enriched flour)

    ‧ 3/4 cup Mochiko (sweet rice flour)

    ‧ 6 tablespoons Xylitol (or granulated cane sugar)

    ‧ 5 teaspoons baking powder

    ‧ 1/8 teaspoon salt

    ‧ 2 large eggs

    ‧ 1 cup + 1/3 cup canned coconut milk

    ‧ 1/4 cup avocado oil (or vegetable oil)

    ‧ 1/2 tsp organic vanilla extract

    ‧ (optional) Heart-shaped pancake molds — if you’re feeling extra fancy

     

    Directions:

    1. Before cooking, set the mood. Turn on your favorite playlist to get the #goodvibes flowing so you can make this recipe with SO MATCHA love. Love is the secret ingredient, friends.
    2. In a large bowl, whisk together all of the dry ingredients: flours, xylitol (or sugar) , baking powder, matcha powder, and salt in a large bowl.
    3. In a separate bowl, mix together wet ingredients. Separate the egg whites into a small bowl and the yolks into a medium bowl. Whisk the egg yolks with the coconut milk, avocado oil, and vanilla.
    4. Combine the wet and dry ingredients. Gently stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until combined. The batter will be thicker than your typical pancake batter.
    5. Beat the egg whites with an electric mixer on high speed until stiff and foamy. If it’s arm day for you, go crazy and whisk the egg whites by hand. Respect.
    6. Preheat a griddle or medium skillet on low-medium heat. If you are using heart-shaped pancake molds for your pancakes, I recommend cooking them one at a time — this will provide enough room for you to flip gracefully.
    7. Fold the egg whites into the batter with a spatula. Use the batter right away.
    8. The fun part! Cook the pancakes. If you are using heart-shaped pancake molds, use a spoon to fill the mold with the batter — don’t fill the mold all the way to the top, leave approximately 1/2” to allow the batter to rise. Allow 5-6 minutes for the pancake to form into the heart-shape as it cooks on low-medium heat. Keep a close eye on it so you don’t burn the bottom of the  pancake. Once you start to see the batter bubbling at the top, gently lift the mold. You’ll know it’s ready to flip the pancake if the batter doesn’t spill over the edges once the mold is removed and keeps it’s heart shape. Flip and cook the other side until slightly golden brown. Repeat.
    9. If you are making the pancakes sans heart-shaped mold, use a measuring cup to pour 1/4 of the batter into the skillet. Cook the pancakes on medium-high heat until golden brown. Flip. Repeat.

      

     

    Extra tips:

    ‧ If you are using a heart-shaped mold, use a knife to clean up the edges of the pancakes once cooked

    ‧ Top the pancakes with your favorite organic berries, maple syrup, whatever floats your boat!

    ‧ For our die-hard #jadeleafmatcha lovers that LOVE matcha in everything, this recipe pairs well with a refreshing iced #jadeleafmatcha latte
