7 Healthy Matcha Green Tea Recipes
Guys. I’m dying over here.
I’m swamped with sooooo much work (big/huge/ginormous emphasis on the SOOOO) and I’m about to break… break eighty chocolate bars and shove them in my face while re-watching all seven seasons of Parks and Rec in my comfy pajamas and puffy slippers while I cry and cry and procrastinate FOREVA.
Okay, I won’t do that. I have some self control (and dignity) 😉
I’ve been trucking along with school and all I can think about is graduation.
I’ve been working hard on something super exciting. Wait, SHHHH… did someone say, “A SECOND COOKBOOK?!?” Hell to the yes. More info to come later when it gets closer to publication.
I’m a bundle of nerves because I have no idea what lies ahead. I started this blog with the goal of becoming a Registered Dietician but now I realize that’s not for me. Now that I’m just within arms reach of graduation, I’m freaking out. What to do?? I don’t even know what state I’ll be living in! Any suggestions are welcome my dear 🙂
So while I’m over here stressing out and counting down the days until Spring break, here are 7 popular Matcha Green Tea Recipes from Desserts with Benefits over the years — each of them are nice and sweet desserts that you’d never know are healthy and all natural. I am slowly getting used to the taste of matcha (wasn’t a big fan at first), but I know there are a lot of matcha fans out there who might appreciate a roundup.
The following recipes are listed in the order that I posted them in, earliest to latest. Enjoy! 🙂
This whole wheat cake is soft, fluffy, sweet and packed with matcha flavor. Not only from the cake, but from the frosting too!
If you like oatmeal and if you like matcha, BOOM! Here’s the answer.
No. Words. Necessary… Okay, a few: this is THE BOMB.
These DIY Protein Bars have all the flavor of a cup of matcha tea but in the form of a soft and fudgy protein bar! (Note: I have a new and improved Matcha Green Tea Protein Bar recipe in my cookbook, DIY Protein Bars)
Smooth, creamy, sweet. And healthy? What more could you ask for?
Did chocolate cross your mind? It did for me. I absolutely LOVE this ice cream with some white chocolate chips sprinkled on top 🙂
This Healthy Matcha Green Tea Milkshake has all the flavor and texture of regular milkshakes but without all the calories, fat and sugar. It’s thick, creamy, sweet and naturally green from the matcha green tea powder… no ice cream, sugary syrups or artificial food coloring needed whatsoever.
This Matcha Fudge is super soft and fluffy and flavorful and sweet, but without the granulated sugar, corn syrup, heavy cream and butter! Oh, and it’s sugar free, low fat, high protein and gluten free.
Soooo… I hope you’re drooling 😉
(Because I am)
PS: There will be a couple matcha recipes in the new cookbook! EEK!
