I get very bored at the beach, I can't understand how people just lay there frying themselves in the sun. So I allways have to take something to read, and I've just started It must've been something I ate. I've seen so many good reviews on a lot of food blogs and sites that I just had to order it. So far so good, it's a good beach mate and also performs well in bed, as a night reading I mean.
In the afternoon (after a little cry over the death of beloved Tastespotting) I made myself something that allways cheers me up: a Strawberry Milkshake! But with a green twist!...
If you're a food blogger or a food blogs reader chances are that you've heard about Matcha green tea. If you have tried it chances are you liked it and if you haven't tried it chances are you want to try it. Am I right?
I have met mr Matcha a long time ago, long before I lived in the food blog land. I love it, that green powder has some magic I tell you! I have used it at work a lot in desserts but never bought it to myself, because the price here is so high! I mean I love it but there is no way I'm going to spend 40€ in a tiny 30 gr (about 1 oz) bag!
Nothing compares to real Matcha of course but this way of using regular green tea is a good alternative. The taste is a bit more "earthy" and strong I think, but still very pleasant. There are a lot of types of green teas out there, so you can choose the one you prefer if you want to give this a try.
For the green twist on my milkshake I just added a small teaspoon of the green tea powder to the milk, sugar and strawberries and blended away. Have a nice weekend everyone!
