12 Delicious Matcha Recipes

Matcha has become a commonplace ingredient in lattes, smoothies and more, – and it’s for good reason.  Unlike traditional green tea, matcha is made from powdered whole tea leaves, meaning you get a potent boost of antioxidants.  Matcha tea converts love the natural boost of energy it gives, but you can also expect benefits like a metabolism boost, protection against heart disease and lowered cholesterol.  Plus, the vibrant color of matcha is due to its high chlorophyll content, a nutrient that helps detoxify, reduce inflammation and boost immunity.  If you’d like to enjoy your matcha beyond the mug, these great recipes are perfect!
