following DoMatcha’s guidelines: “For a more contemporary Matcha-Nog recipe, heat up 6 oz. of readymade Organic Eggnog available at your local natural food retailer, add a dash of nutmeg, and top it off with 1 tsp. of matcha pre-whisked into a froth. A splash of rum is optional!”
I used 1/2 tsp matcha, a combination of milk, almond milk, and eggnog (because I wanted fewer calories/less dairy), and no rum as it was the middle of the day ;-) Not bad!
Backlog: I made matcha lemonade yesterday.
8 oz Full Circle organic lemonade
1/4 tsp matcha
Used my aerolatte to mix because I’m lazy. it even frothed a bit! Served over ice.
This lemonade is so sweet it’s kinda gross :-/ Next time, more matcha, and maybe some water (2-4 oz) in place of some of the lemonade
I added 1 tsp to my Green Monster smoothie for extra energy, because I’ve been dragging lately!
My basic recipe is:
8oz milk (almond, coconut, dairy, etc.)
1/2 banana, frozen
2 large handfuls baby spinach (about 1/4 of a bag, or 1/2 cup packed)
1 carton (~6oz) low/non-fat greek yogurt (Plain, vanilla, w/fruit, etc.)
Blend until smooth. Serve in a mason jar with a few cubes of ice, and a straw. Feel healthy!

This was more like a matcha shot. It was 4:15 yesterday, I needed to leave the house by 4:30 to go paddling. I’d meant to make a Matcha milkshake (like the one HesperJune mentioned earlier this week), but time was getting away from me… So, I poured a splash of almond milk in a wide-bottomed but small mug of mine, eyeballed about 1/4 tsp of matcha with a regular ol’ “silverware” teaspoon, stirred it up a bit, added more milk (about 5 oz total), frothed it up with a few short blasts of my Areolatte (the “moo” model), and gulped it down.
It was delicious, there were somehow NO lumps (which I’ve never had happen when trying to cold steep/electric whisk matcha), and it foamed up very well. Apparently Blue Diamond almond milk is better than Silk and So Delicious at frothing even when cold. Score!
And what’s better, I had plenty of energy and a great time paddling (flatwater lake. I don’t do rivers).
I think there will be many more cold matcha lattes in my future now that I know I can successfully whip one up and drink it down in 5 min. flat!
Had to break this in right away. http://www.breakawaymatcha.com/products/matcha-creamers.html Literally, moments after it arrived today, I was frothing matcha in it. The ceramic was still warm from its overland journey from sunny CA to possibly equally sunny NC. I may have let out a squeal of delight when the big brown truck slowed in front of the neighbor’s, but then stopped in front of my house! Me? Me!
I will try to write more (possibly an “online place” review later) but overall the entire ordering/shipment/product from Breakaway Matcha is top notch (although I only ordered this, not their actual matcha tea, but I
probably definitely will in the future).
used this match to make a Matcha Green Monster smoothie following this recipe:
I used about 3/4 tsp matcha to split the difference withing the range called for, but next time will use the full tsp. I did not add any sweetener, used vanilla greek yogurt, and unsweetened almond milk. The texture was perfect (rich & creamy, but easy to drink) and the flavor is great, just needs a tiny matcha boost.
