Our favourite matcha recipes

It’s no secret that we LOVE all things matcha – but at first glance, we know it can be slightly daunting trying to think of interesting ways to use it on a daily basis.

The great thing is, you can pretty much use it in everything and anything - but here are five of our absolute favourite ways to get our daily dose of the green stuff: 

Matcha latte:

1 tsp teapigs matcha

a little hot water*

a squirt of agave syrup

a sprinkle of cinnamon and/or nutmeg

250ml almond milk

  •  Add hot water to matcha in your cup. *green tea is delicate so best not to use boiling water. Just click the kettle off before it boils or let it sit a few mins
  • Whisk
  • Add agave and spices
  • Heat almond milk and whisk to make frothy
  • Add the milk to the matcha and enjoy the yumminess!

 *this is AMAZING iced too. Just make a paste with a little cold almond milk (instead of the hot water), add the agave and spiced and top with more almond milk and ice.

 Matcha smoothie

1/2 apple

1/4 stick celery

2 sprigs mint

1/2 banana

1/2 pear

1/2 teaspoon matcha

Just blend it all together!

 *This tastes creamy (thanks banana!) yet light and fresh – we love it at breakfast time. If you find it too thick, add a dash of coconut water or fruit juice!

Matcha milkshake

1 teaspoon teapigs matcha

100ml skimmed milk

2-3 scoops good quality coconut ice cream

How to make…

  • Add 100ml of skimmed milk, 2-3 tablespoons of coconut ice-cream into a blender
  • Add 1 teaspoon of teapigs organic matcha
  • Add a little coconut milk to lengthen
  • Blend
  • Drink
  • Grin

 *why not try vanilla ice cream instead of coconut. White chocolate or coconut sprinkles on top. YUM! 

Matcha shot 

So, not really a recipe, but a matcha shot is definitely one of our favourite (and quick!) ways to have matcha in the mornings. 

All you need is 1/2 tsp of matcha, and a shot of liquid - we usually go for water, but you can use fruit juice if you'd prefer. 

Give it all a quick whisk, and get it down in one!

(This is a great one if you're not overley keen on the taste of green tea, but still want the health benefits!)

One for the weekend.... Matcha martini 

1/2 teaspoon matcha powder

2 teaspoons cane sugar (or light agave syrup)

80ml vodka

splash apple juice

How to make:

  • Whisk matcha and agave in to a little vodka
  • Pour into a shaker full of ice, add the remaining vodka and the apple juice and shake shake shake
  • If you want to get fancy - rim a martini glass with sugar, pour in the cocktail and decorate with lemon or mint. If it's too strong, add a little sparkling or soda water.
