Eat your Matcha
Soon many options to put Matcha in food, smoothies, pancake batter, salad dressings, breakfast yoghurt, chia pudding, cupcakes (and the frosting) and the list could go on.
We recommend that you sift your Matcha before adding it to food to avoid lumps and if you can it can also help to dissolve it into a tiny bit of water (depends on what you are cooking).
Matcha Nude loves to add Matcha to breakfast foods especially.
Here are a couple recipes to get your started.
- 1/4 cup chia seeds
- 1 1/2 cups non-dairy milk or water
- 2 teaspoons matcha green tea powder
- 1/2 tablespoon maple syrup, or other natural sweetener
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Toppings: fruit, granola, seeds, nuts, coconut
- In a medium bowl, add chia seeds and non-dairy milk. Stir to combine. Let sit for a few minutes.
- In a small bowl, add matcha powder. Add a little just under boiling water; whisk until smooth.
- Add the matcha mixture, maple syrup and vanilla to the chia seed mixture; stir. Place it in the fridge and let it sit overnight, or a few hours.
- Top with fresh fruit, granola and other toppings and enjoy!
You can also do this with a combination of oats and chia (add the oats at step 3).
THE BEST FLUFFY VEGAN PANCAKES
- 1 cup flour (125 g)
- 2 tablespoons organic sugar
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1 cup non-dairy milk (240 mL)
- 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- maple syrup, to serve
- In a medium bowl, add the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt, and stir to combine.
- In a medium bowl or liquid measuring cup, add non dairy milk, apple cider vinegar, and vanilla, and stir to combine
- Pour the liquid mixture into the dry mixture and whisk until smooth.
- Let batter rest for 5 minutes.
- Pour about ½ cup (65 grams) of batter onto a nonstick pan or griddle over medium heat. If you don't have non stick, use a decent dollop of coconut oil (we prefer it this way as the pancake comes out with some crispness on the outside).
- When the top begins to bubble, flip the pancake and cook until golden.
- Serve warm with maple syrup.
You can add a little more liquid if the batter is too thick.
So you can go enjoy some Matcha at the beginning of your day!
