STRAWBERRY MATCHA

Ingredients

1. Matcha Powder: Use 1 teaspoon of high-quality ceremonial-grade matcha powder for the best flavor and nutritional benefits.

2. Fresh Strawberries: Choose about 1 cup of ripe strawberries, hulled and halved. Frozen strawberries can also be used for a chilled version.

3. Milk or Dairy-Free Alternative: 1 cup of your preferred milk or dairy-free alternative like almond milk, coconut milk, or oat milk.

4. Honey or Agave Syrup: Optional sweeteners to taste, depending on your preference for sweetness.

5. Ice: For a chilled drink, add ice cubes or crushed ice.


Instructions

Step 1: Prepare the Matcha

  1. Sift Matcha: In a small bowl or matcha bowl, sift 1 teaspoon of matcha powder to remove any clumps.

  2. Whisk Matcha: Add a small amount of hot water (about 2 ounces) to the matcha powder. Use a bamboo whisk or a small whisk to vigorously whisk the matcha in a zig-zag motion until it becomes frothy. Set aside.

Step 2: Blend the Strawberries

  1. Blend Strawberries: In a blender, combine the strawberries with 1 cup of milk.

  2. Add Sweetener: Depending on the sweetness of your strawberries and personal preference, add honey or agave. Start with 1-2 teaspoons and adjust as needed.

  3. Blend Until Smooth: Blend the mixture until the strawberries are completely pureed and the liquid is smooth.

Step 3: Combine Matcha and Strawberry Mixture

  1. Add Ice: Pour a handful of ice into the glass.

  2. Mix Together: Pour the strawberry mixture first into the glass. Add the frothy matcha on top.

Step 4: Serve

  1. Pour and Enjoy: Garnish with fresh strawberries or a sprinkle of matcha powder!

Tips for Serving

  • Garnish: Enhance the presentation by garnishing with sliced strawberries or a dusting of matcha powder.

  • Variations: Experiment with different milk alternatives or add a splash of vanilla extract for added flavor.

  • Make it Creamy: For a creamier texture, substitute some of the milk with Greek yogurt or coconut cream.
