I Match-a My Matcha ; Inspiration From My Afternoon Drink

So little time, so matcha to love... What's your favorite afternoon pick me up or signature drink? Scroll down for a chance to WIN!

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." 

We've taken some inspiration from this bright refresher & curated a matcha-licious selection of DIY supplies! Here are our favorites:

    Acee, I LOVE Chai too, but not one that’s too sweet. My fave is a Dirty Chai…. iced or hot. Mmmmm 😋. Thanks for sharing, and check your email for a little treat from us ;-)

    I love chai, so hot in the cold months or frozen chai latte in the warm months. I can also get chai shaved ice year round where I live. Yum!
