Matcha has so many benefits beyond your standard green tea latte! Here are 20 Healthy Recipes Using Matcha Green Tea so you can benefit from all of its antioxidant health properties!

FYI. You need (more) Matcha in your life!

What if I told you there was a magic ingredient that boosts your metabolism, spikes your energy levels, wards off nasty hangovers, and even fights cancer?

Yep, its true- this mean green fighting machine is a health hero and the hottest food trends these last few years. Though matcha has been around for decades, foodstagrammers went wild snapping pics of their #matchalattes at matcha cafes all around the world this year. The matcha movement is real folks.

What Are The Health Benefits of Matcha?

Throughout this year of matcha madness, we have seen matcha move far beyond the cup and onto our plates. Now you can have your tea and eat it too, by incorporating matcha into your baking, cooking and even into your skin care regimen. So what makes matcha so great?

Matcha is packed with antioxidants and in particular, catechins a class of plant compounds that help the body eliminate free radicals. Not only that, but matcha has been shown to help support the liver, the heart as well as boost brain health. Need help focusing? Matcha is got you covered! Matcha has roughly a quarter of the amount of caffeine as a similar-sized cup of brewed black coffee. There are also no spikes and crashes as matcha contains L-Theanine, a phytonutrient which slows the body’s absorption of caffeine.

So are you looking to meet your match-a? Try out one or all 20 of these healthy matcha recipes !

    All of these look so delicious! I was on a matcha kick over the summer but for some reason I never ordered more. That’s got to change! Isn’t food just more fun to eat when it’s a different color? 😉

        Eberything with matcha looks always beautiful, tastes delicious. I drink matcha every day mainly because of its healthy benefits. But I always try to ask people that publish such recipes if they have any knowledge how much of those healthy compounds that matcha have are still present and active after baking or cooking and nobody ansvered me so far. When we prepare matcha tea we shouldn’t use boiling water but wait a few minutes so that the temperature drops and this way we obtain very healthy tea, we do not destroy healthy compounds matcha has. Logically if we bake or cook with matcha we kill everything that is the best in matcha and we end up with beautiful and delicious dishes but without those healthy properties everybody write in introductions to the recipies.

    You must have read my mind because I randomly decided to throw some matcha in my overnight oats (that I am having for lunch) today 😀

      YES!!! I love adding matcha to my oats…esp because I can never get enough caffeine. P.S. I’m still buzzing from this morning’s insanely strong 2 cups of coffee. I have a problem.
