August 23, 2017

 

As a Matcha drinker, you probably know how to prepare Matcha as a hot green tea. But Matcha isn’t just for drinking.

Being a finely grounded powder also makes it an ideal dessert ingredient that’s easy to add into baked goods, cold sweet treats, and other desserts. Depending on how much you add, or what the recipe calls for, the Matcha powder can add a subtle green tea flavor and color to your Matcha desserts or wow your mouth and eyes with its delicious Matcha taste and vibrant green color.

So if you aren’t obsessed yet, these eight Matcha desserts will definitely turn you to the green side—and if you’re already obsessed, your Matcha addiction is about to be taken to the next level.
