Here’s a quick and easy dessert recipe featuring one of our favorite ingredient pairings – Matcha and white chocolate. Using only 4 simple ingredients of Matcha, white chocolate, black sesame, and mochi, these little treats can be made anytime- even on your busiest of days. We love using white chocolate as a base with our Matcha desserts, not only because it tastes great, but because it looks great too! With a fun, chewy center and a beautiful green color, these Matcha White Chocolate Mochi Cups could easily become your favorite. So go ahead- make a bunch and share them with friends and loved ones – but don’t forget to keep some in your fridge for a rainy day.

Now that fall is officially here, it’s time we switched out our favorite summer treats for those beloved fall-inspired ones. Here’s a spin on the classic fall staple- the candied caramel apple. Though often made with a sweet caramel coating, we used our Cooking Grade Matcha + white chocolate to coat ours for the perfect balance of sweet and tart (adapted from Hudson and Emily). Sweet and creamy with just a hint of sour, these Matcha Candied Apples are the perfect way to celebrate fall. So grab your friends and loved ones, a bunch of your favorite toppings, and have a candied apple party for the perfect fall celebration!

A couple of weeks ago, the bloggers from Probably This created a Superfood Almond Butter + Matcha Brownie recipe for us, based on a philosophy that finds a balance between delicious and healthy foods. Finding equilibrium between health, fitness, and eating your favorite foods isn’t as difficult as it seems with a little planning and substituting. Based on this same idea, we tried making a healthier Baked Matcha and Cocoa Donut recipe that contains Aiya's Cooking Grade Matcha, less sugar, almond milk, and zero frying oil.

matcha chia pudding 5 w txt

A couple of days ago, we tried re-creating the Matcha Hemp Chia Pudding recipe created for us by Nibs and Greens. Made with Aiya’s Aiya's Cooking Grade Matcha, this hemp milk based pudding is solidified by chia seeds and features a smooth Matcha flavor that we just can’t get enough of. Though it takes a tiny bit of planning ahead (it has to be refrigerated overnight), just one batch could yield around 2-3 breakfast meals that any health enthusiast (and food lovers altogether) could enjoy throughout the week. Top with your favorites, and it’s good to go! Just one bite of this scrumptious, wholesome treat was all it took to make our stomachs fall in love.
