My girlfriend bought ourselves a 100 gram bag of Kenko Matcha Green Tea Powder (Organic) from Amazon for us to try out. So we decided to put together a short video of the Matcha and putting together a very simple green tea latte.
I've always bought green tea lattes at Starbucks, but now, I can make a simple one at home and enjoy it anytime. What you see in the video is just a very simple prep, but you can find many other videos on youtube for other recipes that get more creative. I'm definitely going to be experimenting more in the coming days.
1 tsp. Matcha
1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
2 tsp. Sugar (or 1-2 tbsp. homemade caramel)
2-3 tbsp. hot water (helps the Matcha and dry ingredients mix and dissolve better)
3/4 cup steamed and frothed milk (or heat milk in sauce pan and remove from heat before it boils, and then whisk fast in a bowl )
Combine dry ingredients together, add in the Vanilla Extract and the hot water together in a bowl and mix well so there are no clumps (I used a Matcha DNA frother, excuse the mess in the video LOL). Then steam and froth the milk. Put together in a glass/cup by putting in the Matcha mix, then pour in the steamed milk, and then adding the layer of froth on top. Sprinkle Matcha if you so desire. Enjoy.

Snowskin (雪皮 xuepi /shwair-pee/) mooncakes are NON-BAKED mooncakes, believed to have originated from Hong Kong but is now enjoyed by the Chinese throughout the world. It gets its name as the crust is made of frozen glutinous rice flour and looks somewhat like snow white. It tastes best when chilled. As tea and mooncakes are among some of the most traditional foods for the Chinese, blending the two items can create a new and popular variety for the otherwise, traditional mooncakes. Furthermore, with the taste of the refreshing green tea, the usually oily and rich taste of mooncake is well balanced.
Mooncakes are often offered between friends and family members while celebrating the mid-autumn festival. Snowskin or custard green tea mooncake recipe is an easy mooncake recipe and its also one of the most popular modern flavours. These green tea mooncakes made with snowskin stays soft for about a week of storage in the refrigerator.

You all know I am a full coffee snob! Now, while coffee has its own benefits, I do like my green tea for all the positive health and nutrition benefits it has.
I have tried loads of types of tea and my favourite so far is the @teapigs Matcha Green tea. It comes in powder form and a cool little box set.
I have it as a warm drink and I also add it to my morning shake, together with bits like spinach, nuts, protien powder etc.
Here is my method for making the perfect cup, or in this case shot glass (comes with the tea), of matcha green tea. Please try it and let me know how you get on. It helps burn fat, has shown to help with tendons and contains antioxidants.
These shortbread cookies are yummy and simple to make! Make a batch and bring them to work or share with friends 🙂
2/3 cup butter, softened
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup confectioners' sugar
1-2 T matcha (green tea powder), depending on taste
1/3 cup white chocolate melts, optional
Preheat oven to 175C (350F)
In a stand mixer* beat the butter on high for five minutes.
Once the butter is light and fluffy, sift in the dry ingredients.
Mix my hand first, then beat on high for a further 5-7 minutes.
The dough is ready when it's light enough to pipe, like the consistency of a very thick frosting.
Then either use a spoon to make balls, or pipe onto a lined cookie tray.
Bake for 5-7 minutes depending on size. Mine were about 1 inch by 1 inch and that was perfect. They are perfect when you can just start to see the bottoms go golden brown.
Then wait for them to cool and either eat as is or decorate with chocolate like in the video 🙂
*If you don't have a stand mixer you can you a hand held one, but there's a lot of mixing (like, A LOT) so it'll take a while!
Thank you for watching!
