Oh, Kiss Me Organics, you had me at hello!
I love tea, especially herbal blends. But sometimes I need a little more kick, and that’s when green tea calls me. It has caffeine, but doesn’t give me the shakes or upset my stomach like coffee does when I overindulge. As for cooking with green tea, that’s new for me. It was, anyway, until Kiss Me Organics asked if I wanted to try their Organic Matcha Green Tea. Not only did they send the tea, but they included a cookbook and additional recipes.
Why Matcha Green Tea? It helped me (and others) come out of a coffee addiction without leaving the detox symptoms of quitting cold turkey. It has antioxidants, boosts metabolism (which helps with the 2 pm slump and calorie burning),
I’ve enjoyed my Matcha hot, iced, in smoothies, and in green tea soy (and almond milk) lattes. Kiss Me Organics sent an e-book filled with recipes for drinks, cocktails, dips, baked goodies, and more. If course, I had to put my own spin on the ones I tried. I made the Refreshing Matcha Cooler (page 16) with raw instead of steamed broccoli, raw beet greens in place of the steamed spinach, raw carrot instead of juice, a lime wedge instead of juice, and almond milk instead of yogurt. Oh man, it was fab!
If I thought my family would go for it, I’d go all out with some of the baked sweets year round. Come
St.Patrick’s Day, a cake or cupcakes with a Matcha non-dairy icing will grace the table. I know some Chocolate Rum Matcha Truffles (page 35) will hit the table before then. Striped Pig Distillery’s Rum and a coconut cream should work nicely here.
