I have been testing out teapigs matcha tea for the last week or so.... I was selected to take part in their two week matcha challenge during May, with a review of the product at the end of my two weeks.
This opportunity was perfect timing for me since I'd become really intrigued by matcha (after hearing a lot about it on Instagram and Kathy's blog). I don't consume coffee- never have liked the taste! But I still like foods that create an energy boost if ever I need one. Maca has been one of my favourite additions to smoothies and snacks for this reason and I add it to lots of things... maybe matcha will gain an equal ranking!
I'll talk more about how i've experimented with the matcha tea in my full review (you can also see more snippets on my Instagram) but for now a super simple recipe for you.
I made these avocado crackers as a pre-workout lunch/snack and then proceeded to smash my PB's on a number of exercises with my trainer... so was the matcha to credit for this? who know's!
Recipe: Matcha avocado crackers
- 1 small avocado
- 1/2 tsp serving of matcha powder
- 1 tbs squeeze lemin juice
- salt and pepper to taste
- crackers to spread the avocado mix on*
*For the crackers I used homemade dehydrated quinoa crackers but you could also use rice cakes or oat cakes.
Mash/mix everything together well and spread on top of the crackers. Eat immediately!
I'd love you to join me in other places too!
