I. Introduction

Matcha, a superstar ingredient derived from green tea leaves, is not only known for its vibrant green color but also for its incredible health benefits. Packed with antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals, matcha can boost energy levels, improve focus, and even assist in weight management. Healthy snacks play a crucial role in maintaining overall well-being, and incorporating matcha into your snacking routine can make it even more enjoyable and nutritious. We've previously shared some mouthwatering matcha recipes on our blog, and now we're back with 8 more must-try matcha recipes for a totally tasty and healthy snacktime!

Chia seeds might be tiny, but they're mighty when it comes to health benefits. These small powerhouses are loaded with fiber, omega-3 fatty acids, and protein, making them a gut-friendly and health-boosting snack ingredient. Not to mention, they're incredibly easy to prepare!

For a delightful and nutritious Matcha Chia Pudding, you'll need the following ingredients:

  • 2 cups almond milk (or any plant-based milk)

  • 1/2 cup chia seeds

  • 1-2 tablespoons matcha powder (adjust to your taste preference)

  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup or honey (optional)

Simply whisk together all the ingredients in a bowl, and then refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight. Once set, give it a good stir and enjoy your Matcha Chia Pudding!

Feeling creative? Customize your Matcha Chia Pudding by adding fresh fruits like berries or mangoes, nuts for a protein boost, or even a dollop of yogurt. Go ahead, mix it up and make this snack uniquely yours!

V. Matcha Popcorn

Ready for a playful twist on a classic snack favorite? Let's make some Matcha Popcorn! By adding a homemade matcha seasoning blend to your popcorn, you'll transform ordinary popcorn into an extraordinary treat that's both tasty and healthy.

First, let's make the matcha seasoning blend:

  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast

  • 1 tablespoon matcha powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Mix all the ingredients together in a small bowl and set aside.

Now, it's time to make the popcorn:

  • 1/4 cup popcorn kernels

  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil or olive oil

Heat the oil in a large pot over medium heat, add the popcorn kernels, and cover the pot with a lid. Shake the pot occasionally until all the kernels have popped. Once popped, transfer the popcorn to a large bowl.

Finally, sprinkle the matcha seasoning blend over the popcorn and toss well to coat. Voilà! You've got yourself a bowl of delicious Matcha Popcorn!

Here are some tips for achieving the perfect matcha-coated popcorn:

  • Make sure your popcorn is completely dry — any moisture can cause the matcha seasoning to clump.

  • Gradually add the matcha seasoning while tossing the popcorn to ensure even coverage.

  • Store any leftover matcha seasoning blend in an airtight container for future snacking!
