Lynneth's Iced Matcha Soy Milk

Submitted by: LYNNETH7
Lynneth's Iced Matcha Soy Milk

Introduction

Cool, refreshing, decidedly healthful, absolutely DELICIOUS, this is my favorite drink. I despise coffee, and I find this gives just enough caffeine in the morning to gently wake me without giving me jitters. Sometimes I don't fee like actually eating in the morning and this is what I grab on my way out.

Some info about Matcha:
===================
Matcha is ground green tea leaves native to Japan, used in tea ceremonies there. You know the health benefits of green tea everyone has been raving about? 1 tsp of matcha is as beneficial as up to 6 tsp of brewed green tea leaves because you actually eat matcha powder instead of tossing it away after brewing.

Get yourself a decent matcha powder. Check your local asian supermarkets. Find a container sealed with a vacuum/nitrogen lock. Make sure it is grown in Uji for best quality. "Thin" Matcha is fine for this drink and other recipes.

Ingredients

    Matcha powder -- 1 tsp
    Low-fat soy milk (plain or vanilla) -- 1 cup
    Honey -- 1 tsp (or 1/2 tsp agave or splenda)

Directions

Use a blender or whisk vigorously until all ingredients are blended. If you're having problems with the matcha dissolving, try warming the soy milk a bit before whisking. (For me it's easier to use a small blender for the task). Add a generous amount of ice cubes and enjoy. Makes 1 & 1/2 cups.

Another great idea would be stirring in 1 tsp fibersure at the end which would give this drink a total of 5 g fiber, 6 g protein. Very filling in the morning for such a small drink.

Enjoy. . .
