This past weekend I visited my brother and his wife (and my ADORABLE NIECE) and I convinced them to try matcha smoothies made with this matcha. We used yoghurt, bananas, frozen mango and soy milk and 1.5 teaspoons of matcha for the three of us. I was a little worried about the mango, but it’s a pretty mild fruit so I thought it would be ok. Thankfully this turned out to be the case. Yay!
The smoothies were delicious, although the strawberry flavor was mostly masked, still, the creaminess that matcha lends to things was definitely discernible. Love creaminess so much! My brother and his wife both thought it was super tasty and were totally stoked about the health benefits, but were kind of worried about the effect the caffeine might have on the baby, so I don’t think they’re going to become matcha regulars until she’s completely on solid foods.
Still, I would call this experiment a success. (of course, then I promptly forgot the strawberry matcha up there, so I am currently matcha-less ;_;)
