Mixing matcha

I often mix my matcha with orange juice in the mornings. Does anyone have suggestions for what else I could mix it with for a bit of variety?

I always add a couple of scoops of matcha to my smoothies when I make them! It is so yum.

mmm … never tried to mix matcha and orange juice … it sounds nice!
I agree with LiberTEAS, it is perfect with smoothies: in my tea room I serve it paired with banana milk shake, apple or pineapple smoothie and also with milk, yogurt and honey.

I like to mix it in with my morning yogurt and it blends well with most fruit juices or even oatmeal.

I DO THAT TOO! It’s kinda funny… last June I was out in Seattle and visited Jamba Juice for the very first time. I was THRILLED they had matcha, but I was also disappointed matcha OJ was not my original idea lol. Another daily mixing for me is adding Special K protein water. I suggest following me- I flavor my matcha a lot lol. Lemon or Limeade… any herbal or fruit tisane… coconut water… and then there’s my favorite non coffee winter drink: peppermint matcha hot chocolate!

Do you have a favorite brand of coconut water? I’d love to try it with matcha (I’m so new at this) but want to get the “best” kind out there. :)

How exactly do you make you peppermint matcha hot chocolate? It sounds really good!

When I make it at home, I steep 1tsp dried peppermint in as little boiling water as I can get away with, add 8oz of milk, 1tsp unsweetened cocoa powder, and 1tsp match and stir. When I go to a coffee shop and have it, I ask for a tall 2 pump peppermint 2 pump mocha hot chocolate w/ 2 scoops matcha.
