What is Matcha?

Matcha is a type of green tea made from young tea leaves. Match tea leaves are specially grown to make this unique tea. The plant is left in the shade for several weeks to help increase the caffeine levels and improve the flavor of the tea. Once ready to harvest, the baby leaves are ground into a super fine, green powder. The powder is so fine that it dissolves in water almost immediately. Matcha is typically whisked into hot water to create a frothy, latte like drink.

What Does Matcha Taste Like?

On it’s own, matcha has a bright, slightly bitter taste. It can also taste a little bit grassy or vegetal. If you have ever had unsweetened green tea, this is exactly what matcha is like! Matcha is typically sweetened or paired with another, sweet ingredient to help it taste less bitter. It goes well with tropical tastes and is often paired with pineapple, mango, coconut or citrus flavors.

Is Matcha Healthy?

Matcha contains lots of natural antioxidants called catechins. These antioxidants have been linked to improved heart health, helping with type two diabetes and even preventing cancer. Matcha has been shown to increase energy levels, boost concentration and even help improve your mood. Everyone would be happy with a delicious matcha latte in their hands!

The matcha lattes you get in most coffee shops are made with matcha powder that is pre-mixed with sugar. While this sure tastes good, it does take away from the health benefits of the drink. Too much added sugar isn’t always good.

Our homemade matcha latte recipe uses honey and the natural sweetness of pineapple juice to make the delicious drink. It is a healthier option and tastes even better than a store bought matcha latte!

Ingredients in Pineapple Matcha

We stick to simple ingredients in our pineapple matcha latte. Here is what we use to make our tasty, tropical green tea:

Water– to help dissolve the matcha powder and dilute the strong natural flavor of the tea.

Matcha Powder– Be sure to chose premium culinary grade matcha or ceremonial grade matcha which has the best flavor.

Pineapple Juice– Look for pineapple juice that has no added sugars. Make your own by pureeing fresh pineapple and straining it.

Fresh Ginger- Peel the ginger before grating

Honey- Honey or maple syrup will work well to sweeten the matcha tea latte

Coconut Milk- We like using canned coconut milk which is creamier thanks to the natural fat of the coconut. You can use any kind of dairy free milk or dairy milk as well. If you replace the milk, you may want to add a little more honey to the tea latte.

All of the ingredients are blended together to make a frothy, foamy latte that is irresistible. It is easy enough to make in the morning to give you the energy you need to start your day. It is also tasty enough to enjoy as a sweet treat in the afternoon. We know you will fall in love with this green, healthy, tropical pineapple matcha. Enjoy!

Top Ways To Utilize the Core of a Pineapple

Eating freshly sliced ​​pineapple is a sure way to brighten your day—but did you know pineapple can be turned into things other than simple slices? Preparing a pineapple is easy work with a fast and powerful pineapple corer, so you should think twice before you toss your pineapple core away. There are countless delicious and creative recipes you can try with leftover pineapple cores. Make the most of this bright and tasty treat with these top ways to utilize the core of a pineapple.

Make It Into Stock

Pineapple broth is a flavorful base that’s perfect for making lots of different recipes, including sweet and sour or sweet and spicy soups. Blend and cook your pineapple core with other vegetables to make the broth. Using tomatoes and celery is great, but you can also experiment with different produce to get the precise flavor you want. Alternatively, if you’re making a savory broth out of meat or fish, you can add the pineapple core to the broth to sweeten the flavor.

Purees, Toppings, and More

There are plenty of easy pineapple core recipes you can use to make toppings and garnishes. A classic puree is a good place to start. Boil the pineapple core to soften it, then puree it into a liquid. This topping is perfect for pastries, soups, and cocktails.

Create a simpler topping by grating a pineapple core onto dishes for a sweet and tangy touch. It’s excellent on salads or sweet meats and barbecues.

One of the top ways to utilize the core of a pineapple is to cut and freeze it. You can freeze small cubes and use them as ice cubes in drinks. Alternatively, freeze larger chunks—or the entire core—to use it as a garnish in punches, teas, sangria, and other fruity drinks.

Raw Slices or Pineapple Chips

Did you know that you can eat pineapple core by itself? Many people avoid the core because it’s tougher than the rest of the pineapple, but you can circumvent this by slicing it into thin pieces. Pineapple core is great raw, but you can also turn slices into dried pineapple chips. Simply spread your pineapple core slices out on a baking tray and bake them until they dry. Then you’ll have a crisp, tasty snack you can munch on for the rest of the week.
