After reading the extraordinary benefits of Matcha in our last blog, you are probably thinking how you can include its wonderful nutrition in your diet while also enjoying its delicious taste. We created 5 recipes that are super-easy to make and will make you fall head over heels in Matcha-love! Without further ado, let us check them out.

Note: For all of these recipes, you may choose to exclude sugar and instead use other natural sweeteners like honey, maple syrup or sugar free add-ons. As the quality of Matcha increases, the natural colour in the recipes is more brighter green.
