When a Tea Company Boils a Banana... A Thick, Sweet Matcha

When a Tea Company Boils a Banana... A Thick, Sweet Matcha

July 21, 2015

 "I've been making banana tea with the matcha and it is absolutely wonderful..."

When a loyal customer declares that making Mizuba Matcha with "banana water," was the best drink she's ever had...you better believe Mizuba set out to boil a banana in curiosity of this new take on a Matcha drink!

Facts:

This quick, easy recipe results in a very sweet, but raw, low-sugar and healthy beverage that is incredibly soothing. The banana satisfyingly thickens the tea, and is said to promote natural serotonin and melatonin to help promote calmness. 

Ingredients:

Mizuba Matcha (best used with Culinary OrganicDaily, or House Organic grades)

1 ripe banana

1 tsp vanilla extract

Sweetener to taste (honey, stevia, agave syrup, or coconut sugar)

Cinnamon to taste

Salt to taste

Method: 

Cut both ends off the banana. 

                                     

Boil banana in water (~1.5 cups) for 10 minutes. It will smell delicious! 
Transfer the banana to a blender, and blend until pureed. Measure out 1.5 tsp of Mizuba matcha powder into your tea bowl. Use the banana puree to make your Matcha.

Once frothy, add a pinch of cinnamon, salt, vanilla extract, and your sweeter of choice.

Whisk again, and enjoy!  

 

"...It's literally the best drink I've ever had. Maybe you can try it out sometime."
