For years I was too intimidated by the Kermit-the-frog-esque color to try matcha. Not sure why because as I'm a vegetarian, I love green vegetables both on a plate or in green juice and smoothies. I'm also a huge fan of "regular" green tea, but I'd never given the powdered version of this tea a chance.
Like many good things in life, once I gave it a try, I was hooked. Nowadays I've gone so far as to trade in my afternoon iced coffee for this boldly colored caffeinated green goodness. I even add my own twist: Strawberry Puree!
I'm not even sure how I arrived at this signature drink, but I can't seem to kick my new habit. I usually get mine from Starbucks, because it's quick and easy, but I've made one at home a few times too. It's super easy and beyond delicious!
Here's a recipe that I use. Don't you love these vibrant colors together?

I will add though, once you stir it up, it's not so pretty. As my son, who is learning color-mixing, would say "ewww, that makes brown."
