Green tea has been the talk of the town for as long as anyone can remember so it comes as no surprise that matcha tea powder shares in some of its glory given all its health benefits.
Whether you're using it as tea, in your smoothies, baking or even cooking matcha powder can give your dish or drink that extra little flavour you're looking for along with many health benefits.
Some benefits of drinking green tea include;
- antioxidants that can lower risks of various illnesses
- boosting your energy for the day
- increased metabolism rate,
- ability to kill bacteria improving dental health and lowering risk of infection
These are only some of the benefits but its already enough to get us incorporating green tea into our diet everyday!
We pretty much love anything that's matcha flavoured and some of our favourites include Kit Kat, Pocky and ice cream. Most of these products probably only use matcha flavouring so we decided to find a good wholesome recipe using real matcha!
Just One Cook Book's green tea chiffon cake recipe seemed pretty straight forward and tasty so we decided to give it a try using Kiss Me Organics Matcha Tea Powder.
We didn't change anything about the recipe and it turned out really well! Just be sure to cool the cake upside down or else it will collapse!
The great thing about using matcha in baking and drinks is that a little goes a very long way. The chiffon cake that easily gets 8 slices only uses one tablespoon of matcha and the flavour is quite strong!
If you're not much of a baker, you can always try adding a teaspoon of matcha into your morning or post work out smoothie to give that extra boost of energy!
