Matcha Almond Milk Kudzu Jelly

Matcha Almond Milk Kuzu Mochi

This is one of my favorite cold desserts. It’s very simple to make and the flavor is so rich and elegant. The key is a high quality matcha and kudzu powder (plant based starch – the kind I use is considered to be among the top quality kind from Yoshino region of Nara, Japan). The texture is nicely bouncy and the flavor is so rich, although there is no butter or cream used. In fact, it’s completely vegan. Kuzu mochi is a traditional Japanese dessert, made of simply kudzu powder and water. And, this is my variation which has matcha and almond milk. You can make it one day in advance, so this makes a nice dessert when you have a dinner party.


Iced Matcha Latte

This is absolutely my go-to drink to refresh and relax at the same time on a warm day. In the summertime, I actually make this every day after I come back home from work and enjoy in the kitchen during prepping for dinner. I normally make it with unsweetened almond milk, but you can make it with soymilk, whole milk, or any choice of milk. The matcha I use is a premium quality and I use a generous amount of it, so I hope you try this recipe and find how upgraded this drink tastes compared to commercial matcha drinks. 


Matcha & Salt Madeleine

Matcha Moshio Madeleine

This one-pot donabe madeleine is always so tasty and it’s hard to stop eating it. I make it with Bistro Donabe, as its extra thick body and the flat bottom allow the heat to distribute gently and also make a nice presentation when it’s sliced. The authentic matcha flavor is complemented with the mineral-rich moshio sea salt. When I serve this with freshly-whisked matcha, I’m in heaven.
