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.

Last weekend, the Aiya team had the chance to exhibit at the annual Natural Products Expo West show held at the Anaheim Convention Center. Since this show was local to us, all it took was a short 30 minute commute. From 10am-6pm, the halls of the convention center were packed with over 71,000 attendees and 2,700 exhibitors—by far the largest trade show we've ever exhibited at. And although we've participated in NPEW shows quite a few times in the past, this was definitely the largest of them all, with exhibitors taking up the entire convention center and even spilling over to the Hilton Hotel next door.

Need a delicious recipe idea for St. Patrick’s Day? Use Matcha! In celebration of this upcoming holiday and everything green, try making this simple Matcha cake with a rich buttercream frosting (adapted from My Name is Yeh). Since Matcha naturally turns everything so beautifully green, there's no need for food coloring in your batter, especially when mixed with light colored ingredients, like flour or white chocolate. The possibilities are endless for St. Patrick's day themed treats when using Aiya’s Cooking Grade Matcha, but we’ll start off with this yummy jade green cake for your festivities.

Last weekend, the Aiya team flew out to beautiful San Francisco, CA for the annual Winter Fancy Food Show.  It was held at the Moscone Convention Center, which was only a short ten minute walk from our hotel.  Instead of renting a car this time, we walked to the show every day, taking in the crisp, chilly air and gorgeous scenery. With perfect weather and an amazing turn out, this show was definitely a great way to start out our exhibition at the 2015 trade shows.
