Midori Spring Matcha

Ok so I have to admit. This is my first experience with matcha. I like green tea so I figured I would like matcha. It is so hot right now there was no way I am drinking hot tea so I played around, And came up with a smoothie and a soda.

The soda is so easy and it was really refreshing. I try and walk a couple or so miles in the morning with I friend. So when I get home to actually get ready for the rest of my day. I am super hot. So I made this to refresh myself while I got ready this morning. 
1 tsp matcha 
2 tbsp hot water 
1 tsp raw honey 
bottle of sparkling water 
1/4 of a lime

With a whisk mix matcha, honey and water until smooth. 
Put ice in your glass and pour matcha mix over ice. 
Squeeze lime juice from line into glass. 
Top off your glass with sparkling water. 
I really liked this. It was a great cool off from the morning walk. 

My smoothie was super easy. Place everything in a blender and blend until smooth. 

1 tsp matcha powder 
1/2 cup of frozen pineapple 
1/2 cup almond milk 
 1 peeled kiwi
If you want it sweeter use raw honey. 

Blend away!! 
Perfect wake me up!! 

I really like this form of green tea. The powder has endless possibilities. Baking, Ice cream. Yum ice cream!!  It's has a mild flavor so you could do anything you want really. I think I will play with this Matcha more and see what else I can create.  I actually like this better than regular green tea.  I really feel like this product is more flexable for cooking and just all around being creative in the kitchen.  The flavor is very mild and pleasing.
