Matcha Pancake Recipe
Instructions
  1. Crack the eggs in to bowl and whisk
  2. Add the milk and continue to whisk
  3. Sift the flour baking powder and matcha together in a large bowl
  4. Combine your wet and dry ingredients
  5. Use a balloon whisk to beat the mixture together until it forms a smooth, lump free batter
  6. Heat a non-stick frying pan and add a few drops of oil or spray equivalent. When it is hot, drop two or three large spoonfuls of the mixture into the pan, leaving space between the pancakes. Cook for 1-2 minutes until the base is golden, then flip the pancakes over and cook on the other side
  7. Transfer the pancakes to the warm plate, and keep in the oven whilst you cook the remaining pancakes in the same way - the mixture makes about 12 in total
  8. Divide the pancakes between four plates, heaping them up, scatter with the fruit and serve with a drizzle of maple syrup

Party layer matcha latte
Instructions
  1. Measure out your milk into a tall glass, add nutmeg, the sweetener and ice cubes, leaving a space at the top for the Matcha layer.
  2. In a separate glass or jug, whisk the Matcha powder with water, using a fork or a small whisk until no lumps remain.
  3. Pour the Matcha layer over the top of the milk and ice and enjoy!
Recipe Notes

Here’s the secret: The layer with the sugar in is heavier than the non-sugar layer. So if you want the milk at the bottom, add the sugar to this layer.

News, Recipes

Made with premium grade Japanese matcha leaves, our Matcha contains a host of supernutrients said to help drinkers antioxidise, energise, concentrate, rejuvenate, stay calm and lose weight.  It’s really easy to make and, best of all, it tastes great!

  • The water temperature should be less than boiling to maintain the natural, mild sweetness and health benefits (approximately 180F/80C)
  • Put a teaspoon of Matcha into a mug or milk jug.
  • Stir vigorously or whisk in just a small amount of heated water or milk with the Matcha first, until it is a smooth paste. 
  • Once all of the powder is dissolved, add the rest of the water or milk, again stirring or whisking vigorously until the powder is smooth and foamy.
  • Serve as is or with a small sprinkling of Matcha powder on top.

Enjoy!
