Made a hot matcha, banana, and soy milk smoothie and it is yummy.
Like the smoothie idea. Not the banana part. But a HOT smoothie…? That sounds weird. A whole pan of brownie points for creativity for it though.;)
Yes that does sound quite good.
My opinon of a hot smoothie may just be a temperature thing… I think some things are gross at a cold temp, and others hot.
oh man, that sounds great!
Have you ever used almond milk in your matcha?
@LENA, It is wonderful.
@Cofftea, Not with matcha but with other teas. I make my own almond milk when I run out of soy milk and haven’t run out of soy milk lately.However, almond milk is generally good in everything.
Oh no! I accidentally deleted Cofftea’s post. I didn’t think I could do that. I thought I was replying.
What I meant to do was to say that buying Almond creamer is more expensive than making the almond milk. To make almond milk you combine raw almonds and hot water in a blender and then blend on high. Add more water until it is the consistency you want. Easy, cheap, tasty.
oohh, that sounds good too. I love almond butter, but it is super expensive (like $17 for a fairly small jar)…but now I’m inspired to make my own.
@Carolyn- how the heck did you manage that one! :) Almond creamer is more versitile so I’ll try that. Our blender is out of my reach anyway. Almond creamer is something I can do myself.
@Cofftea, Sounds reasonable. As to how I managed to delete your comment, for some reason I now have delete buttons next to every comment. I thought they were reply buttons. :(
This is near identical to my matcha shake recipe. I sometimes add a little honey, though I’ve never tried it hot. Might need to do that some time.

I’m a suddenly enthusiastic tea aficionado. I had no idea how varied and delicious teas could be. Also I’m a dairy-free vegetarian, so if you see me say “cream” or “milk” it means soy milk or soy cream.
