Recipes

While tea is the traditional way to enjoy, VIBRANTEA matcha has many other uses. You can sip it, blend it, bake it, mix it, blitz it and swirl it to boost your daily nutrition. You might like to try:

  • a creamy matcha latte,
  • blitzing matcha into your next smoothie,
  • adding an earthy matcha green tea flavour to raw protein balls,
  • a sprinkle of matcha in sweet and savoury dishes - cooked, baked or raw!

  • 1 serve VIBRANTEA matcha (1 scoop or ½ teaspoon)
  • ½ teaspoon honey
Matcha_Latte


Heat almond milk in a small saucepan, microwave or milk frother.  Do not boil.  
Stir in honey.
Place 1g of VIBRANTEA matcha into a small bowl. 
Using a chasen (bamboo whisk), gently press down on the powder to break up any lumps.
Add 100ml of hot water (not boiling - 90°C is ideal).
Use the chasen to quickly whisk the matcha, creating 'W' and 'M' shapes in the bowl to form a rich foam.
Add your heated almond milk to your frothy matcha.
Garnish with a light sprinkle of matcha powder or cinnamon and enjoy hot.
 
 

Fresh Matcha Smoothie

 

  • 1/2 an apple, cored
  • 1/2 an orange, peeled
  • 5 cm of cucumber
  • 1 celery stalk
  • 10 spinach leaves
  • thumb of ginger, peeled
  • 1/4 a lemon, peeled
  • 5 mint leaves
  • 5 parsley leaves
  • small slice of fennel
  • 2 serves VIBRANTEA matcha (2 scoops or a heaped teaspoon)
  • 1 cup water

 

Place all items into your blender, NutriBullet or Thermomix and blend until smooth.  Add more or less water according to your taste.  Recipe serves two.

This smoothie is a perfect way to start your day and can also be made for a healthy afternoon boost.  Our tip: pre cut and measure ingredients a few days ahead for an easy breakfast.  Store in an air tight container and "just add water" in the morning.
