Don't you just love when you can add natural gorgeous colors to your food?
It is not only added nutrition but also brings joy to one's eyes and heart!
Colors make me happy, I am sure you heard about color therapy and how colors can lift our perception and energy and can even change our reality.
I used to have a very limited experience with matcha that I tried couple of times and just felt drawn away, it wasn't appealing for me, the smell, the taste, the effect... Until I tried Organic Burst Matcha that was just launched 2 weeks ago! Total game changer!
After I read how ethically and responsibly this matcha was grown and harvested, I couldn't wait to try it and feel the difference!
When I received it in the mail, i ran into my kitchen and made myself a beautiful cup of vibrant green matcha that to my surprise was not bitter at all and had no fishy after taste!
I love the effect it has on the body, mind & soul.
If you are addicted to coffee and need to substitute with something that gives you the same alertness but without the jitters, organic burst matcha is what you need!
Today, I offered some to my client to sip on during our session, and she LOVED it, she wants to order some, she was thrilled about the idea that this could replace her need for coffee and do her body good!
There is something very special about this matcha, it feels so pure and divine, no wonder why it has been an integral part of the traditional Japanese cultures to celebrate mindfulness and the power of being in the "now".
Yesterday, I wanted to experiment a little more with this vibrant powder and I made some gluten free waffles that turned out so delicious!
Crispy on the outside, gooey on the inside!
If you ever tried green tea mochi, you will know what i am talking about.
Kids and hubby absolutely loved it!
I has one leftover for today's brunch, I put it back in the waffler to warm it up a bit... a pure delight!
2 cup of GF blend (I used Pamela artisan blend)
2 tsp baking powder
4 tsp of Organic Burst matcha
2 cups of coconut milk (I use full fat coconut milk)
1 mashed banana
30 drops of vanilla liquid stevia or 1 tbsp maple syrup
2 tbsp of lemon juice
2 tbsp coconut oil
Mix dry ingredients together in a large bowl.
In another bowl, mash the banana and add it to the milk, oil, lemon juice and sweetener.
Pour wet ingredients over the dry ones.
Mix well with a spoon until all the ingredients are well incorporrated.
The batter should look thick but still runny.
Preheat your waffler, when ready, add approx. half a cup of the batter to the middle of the waffle and let cook for 5 minutes or until desired crispiness.
Serve your waffles with fresh fruits like raspberries, pomegranate seeds, or whatever is in season, some coconut butter or nut butter.
Drizzle with some maple syrup and enjoy the magical green matcha waffles!
You can store leftovers in the fridge for couple of days and warm before serving in the waffler or your toaster.
You can freeze up to 3 months!
