    Perfect Matcha Latte WITHOUT a Whisk


    In this quick video I show you how to make a perfect hot matcha latte WITHOUT needing a whisk, or any other fancy tools. The secret? Mixing the matcha by shaking!

    Shaking matcha is super effective because it breaks up all the clumps and leaves a nice frothy layer on top (just like whisking does, but easier). It's so effective in fact that you don't even need to sift the matcha beforehand. Usually we use the shaking method for iced lattes, but this recipe allows you to use it to make a hot latte as well.

    VERY important note, however, is to *never* use hot water when shaking, as it is dangerous and could cause an accident. Instead, just use room temperature water...the heated milk will be just fine to make sure your latte is nice and hot.

    Ingredients:

    • 1 cup milk (almond, coconut, soy, regular, all work great)
    • 1/4 cup water - room temperature!!
    • 1/2 tsp matcha (culinary or ceremonial)
    • 1-3 tsp sweetener (honey, sugar, agave, stevia, etc)

    Preparation:

    1. Pour the milk into a mug, and microwave on high for 90 seconds.
    2. While the milk is heating, add the water (again, make sure it is room temp) and the matcha to a shaking container (I used a mason jar) and seal the lid tight. Shake for about 5-10 seconds until well mixed.
    3. Pour the matcha into the heated milk, making sure to get all the frothy goodness at the end.
    4. Add sweetener if desired, then give it a final stir with a spoon.
    5. Enjoy!

    Matcha Peanut Butter Cups

    Few treats are as satisfying as the simple peanut butter cup, and when I saw this stunning photo by @beetsandburgers on instagram, I had to share.

    Turns out the recipe is a lot simpler than I imagined! All you need are some muffin cups (and a little patience) to achieve that iconic peanut butter cup look. Check it out:

    Ingredients:

    • 6 oz white chocolate melts
    • ½ cup peanut butter
    • 1-2 tsp matcha powder (culinary grade)
    • Dash of salt
    • Sweetener to taste (sugar, honey, agave...)

    Preparation:

    1. Melt the white chocolate and mix in matcha and salt. Taste to check sweetness level, and add more sweetener as desired, a little at a time.
    2. Pour half the mixture into 6 lined muffin cups and place in the fridge. Set aside the rest of the matcha chocolate.
    3. Once set, remove the cups from the fridge and spoon the peanut butter into the middle. 
    4. Cover with more of the matcha chocolate (will have to heat up again). Place in the fridge to set.
    5. Once set, remove the pan, remove the liners and voila! 

    Marissa from @beetsandburgers actually uses vegan white chocolate in her matcha peanut butter cups, and includes a recipe for it in her post here.
