This past year, matcha recipes have been on the rise due to matcha鈥檚 high amount of antioxidants, smooth texture and bold, delicious flavor. But while you鈥檝e been mixing this green powder into cakes and smoothies, there is another way to use it: in your morning coffee recipe. This Dirty Matcha is going to boost your AM by mixing matcha and coffee in one cup. It鈥檚 essentially like having a mint chocolate chip cookie for breakfast, but with added health benefits (#winning!). So instead of starting your day with a boring cup of joe or trying a regular ol鈥 green tea recipe, add a bit of matcha (and maybe a few marshmallows and chocolate chunks) to really get your morning started.
