Like it sweet? Try matcha with juice

Drink Matcha

Matcha can be consumed any way you like it, including with juice, with or without the work in the kitchen.  We tried half a teaspoon mixed in to some 100% apple juice. Confession time: we fancy ourselves to be juicing people, but we really just bought the pressurised stuff from the supermarket ... then we mixed in our matcha with a milk frother for around 30 seconds. And that was it! Of course, if you enjoy juicing and making smoothies, you can add matcha to anything you're making. Feel free to tell us your juice stories in your comments.
