2 Simple, Summer Matcha Recipes We Can’t Live Without!

We won’t lie, we’re picnic-ers. While many of our fellow urbanites may roll their eyes at that sentence, consider this: There is no better way to “escape” city living for just one day. It’s an easy and inexpensive way to do something fun! Just  pack up a blanket, a book and some goodies to eat and drink, then head out to a local park.

One of our favourite picnic flavours is matcha. The powdered green tea is incredibly useful for so much more than just making hot tea – as you’ll find below, with our favourite matcha treats. If you still aren’t on the picnic wagon, you can always come in to the Tealish Tea Cafe and we’ll make one of our famous matcha drinks for you!

So, why do we love these treats? Easy, they’re simple recipes that require very few ingredients. Also, the end results are more delicious, nutritious and cost effective than anything you’ll buy at the grocery store. Try to prove us wrong!  Bonus points go out to these recipes in particular because they’re energizing and preservative-free.

Easiest-Ever Matcha Ice Cream

1 cup cream

1 can preservative-free condensed milk. We like Eagle Brand.

1 tsp pure vanilla extract

1 tsp Tealish Matcha Organic

1 tbsp hot water

Whisk the matcha powder into hot water using a matcha whisk. Put the matcha mixture, cream, condensed milk and vanilla extract into a blender or whisk by hand. Freeze mixture in a loaf pan. Once frozen, scoop mixture into a bowl for the final hand blend. Then, enjoy your delicious ice cream! You can also re-freeze after the final step (but ours never lives to see the freezer again). If you’re lactose intolerant, play around with these measurements using coconut milk! Adding coconut shavings will beef up your mixture and add great texture. Yum!

Matcha Lemonade

8 ounces hot water

1 tsp Tealish Matcha Organic

1/4 lemon, sliced for squeezing

1 glass filled with ice

Sweetener (optional)

Mint and/or lemon to garnish

Whisk the matcha powder into hot water. Squeeze the lemons into the mixture, tossing in one or two of the slices as garnish. Sweeten to taste. Pour over ice and sip! Good, right?
