KissMe Matcha Green Latte
Matcha Orange Cocktail
Kiss Me Organics asked if I wanted to try their Organic Matcha Green Tea Powder. I had an unpleasant experience with a Matcha Latte a long time ago, but I wanted to give it another chance to redeem itself. I knew there are a lot of health benefits to matcha. A few of the things highlighted on the packaging are: all day energy, metabolism boost, increase focus, improve skin health, and 137x antioxidants of brewed green tea. I don't know about you, but I like to have all of the above!
The Organic Matcha Green Tea Powder is exclusively sold through Amazon. Once purchased, you will receive a complimentary recipe e-book with different ways to incorporate matcha into your daily life. The e-book has over 50 recipes using matcha anywhere from smoothies to breakfast. When I skimmed through the e-book, I realized I didn't have most of the ingredients. Therefore, I was only able to make two things: the KissMe Matcha Green Latte and the Matcha Orange Cocktail.
The KissMe Matcha Green Latte was very easy to make. It only needed milk, water, and agave syrup! Since I didn't have agave syrup on hand, I replaced it with honey. Sadly my drink looked nothing like the photo in the recipe e-book because I had zero skills with creating foam and latte art. It was a nice latte drink nonetheless, and my favourite to drink almost everyday as of late. The Matcha Orange Cocktail was just as easy. It required ice, sugar, hot water, and orange juice. I didn't have any Tropicana so I used Sun Della's Citrus Punch. For the cocktail, you should adjust the matcha or orange juice depending on which taste you prefer more of. I liked tasting the matcha more so I adjusted the amount the second time I made it. Plus, the cocktail is a great alternative for having a cold summer drink!
Overall, I think the Organic Matcha Green Tea Powder is a great product! I like the taste and I love how there are so many different ways to use it. Hopefully in the near future I will tackle another recipe once I have time to (I will update here once I do!).
