Where fruity meets earthy.
When you're a matcha enthusiast, you really could have the same matcha latte everyday and be perfectly content. But, like with everything, it's so important to switch things up sometime. This may be changing from warm and cozy to lighter and iced. Or, in this case, it means adding a fruity twist.
Eating seasonally is going back to our roots. It is what we were intended to do. Bite into a juicy seasonal strawberry and you'll taste the difference. Hence the reason why I am adding strawberries to whatever I can.
Matcha in the morning sets the intention for my day. It focuses, energizes and relaxes me all at the same time. When you open a tin of matcha from matcha.com you will find a vibrant-colored matcha that is grown in the ancient capital of Japan, the original birthplace of matcha. You can see and taste the quality. There are many different grades, kinds and price points as well.
1 tsp Tenchi Ceremonial Organic matcha (use code CACAOFC for 20% off)
2-3 Tbsp water that is just under boiling (~ 160°F)
1 cup organic strawberries
1 cup almond milk (or milk of choice)
Bring a pot/kettle of water to just under a boil.
In a bowl, filter matcha and whisk with water. The matcha should foam a bit.
In a blender, blend strawberries and almond milk.
Fill a glass with ice, pour in strawberry milk and top with matcha.
Makes 1 serving
