EASY AND SWEET TRADITIONAL JAPANESE MATCHA RECIPES

I received my first pouch of matcha powder earlier this month from Boost Bio Market and Ev Zin Bio. I’m a big fan of matcha smoothies but other than that I had no idea what to do with it. Enter a good friend, fellow boy mama and all around awesome person, Minako. I first wanted her matcha tea recipe. Then I wanted her matcha parfait recipe. Soon I was receiving photos of mouth-drooling Japanese treats and simple little recipes. So we decided to share and here they are!

Easy Matcha ice cream

You will need:

200 gr vanilla ice cream
1 tsp matcha powder
What to do:

let the vanilla ice cream melt so you can whisk in the matcha powder. Minako recommends going with more than 1 tsp if you really want to taste the matcha.
pour into a container and freeze for more than 3 hours until it is frozen.

Mochi (plain and matcha)

For plain mochi you will need:

50 gr glutinous rice flour
50 ml water
For the matcha mochi you will need:

50 gr glutinous rice flour
5 gr matcha powder
50 ml water

What to do: The method is the same for both plain and with matcha.

Grab a bowl and mix all the ingredients. But add water SLOWLY. You want to make a ball so you need to form a paste to be able to slowly do that.
Place your mochi balls in boiling water.
Once your balls come up to the surface take them out and put them directly into cold water and rinse them.
Drizzle matcha syrup over and enjoy.
*** You can find glutinous rice flour from Chinese food shops in town.

Matcha syrup

What you will need:

2 tsps matcha powder
7 tbsps cane sugar
10 tbsps water

What to do:

mix your matcha and sugar in a pan.
add water SLOWLY and mix well each time you do.
then add heat to the pan, mixing well as you go until the sugar has melted completely.

Roasted nuts coated with matcha powder

You will need:

100 gr nuts – Minako recommends almonds and walnuts
60 gr cane sugar
2 tbsps water
1 tsp butter
15 gr matcha powder
What to do:

Mix all the ingredients – NOT the matcha powder – coating the nuts.
Put in the oven to caramelise – keep your eye on them- and mix once.
Cool them down and then mix with the matcha powder by shaking in a ziplock bag.
