Matcha Green Tea Nana-cream

You’ve probably heard lots about the new buzz food Matcha! But what exactly is Matcha? Matcha describe 100% pure organic green tea leaves ground into powder. With matcha, the whole tea leaf is consumed. As a result, the powder packs 137 x the antioxidants of regular green tea antioxidants, helping to boost immunity and fight free radicals in the body.

A tasty way to enjoy matcha is in a dessert form, such as this healthy nana-cream. Enjoy!
