Are you a matcha lover? I know I am! It’s hard for me to resist anything matcha flavoured. Have you tried Nana’s soft serve green tea? That’s one of my favourites! I treat myself to that every now and then 😋
I love having matcha daily due to its high levels of antioxidants which offers benefits such as these….
Increase metabolism 📉
Improve physical endurance 🏊
Reduce stress and anxiety 🙋!!!
Boost concentration and focus 📚
Improve brain functions (anti-aging!) ⌛
Prevent Diseases 💊
I know this first one is no recipe, but how can i leave out my daily fix right? 😌

Matcha Recipe #5: Matcha Yoghurt Bowl Recipe
Last month, we’ve shared a #tipoftheweek, and that is to flavour your own yoghurt. Say no to sugar-laden flavoured yoghurt, and choose greek yoghurt or plain yoghurt instead. My personal favourite is greek yoghurt or plain yoghurt from Farmer’s Union. It contains only milk and cultures. Those two ingredients are all you need in your yoghurt.
We are putting our tip to practice here by flavouring our yoghurt with matcha and honey!
Ingredients: 3 Heap Tbsp Greek Yoghurt | 1/2 Tbsp Raw Honey | ½ Tbsp Matcha Powder | Mixed Berries | Granola
- Mix yoghurt, honey and matcha powder till smooth.
- Serve with mixed berries, granola or any of your desired toppings.
I hope these recipes will inspire you to introduce healthy habits daily. It doesn’t have to be matcha (mine is! 😅 ), it can be squeezing in 15 minutes of workout, journaling in the morning, adding an extra handful of greens to your meals, etc. The trick is to start doing and start making conscious efforts. Just that one step everyday. Every little bit counts!
