We had a customer come in and he wanted 3 cans of matcha and I was curious what he was using it for ... because he didn't look like the "typical" type for a green tea ceremony or making mochi cakes that most Japanese make around this time of the year. So a brief dialogue between myself and the customer, we'll call him Mike:
We carry Matcha in either sealed aluminum cans or re-sealable pouches
Mike: Hi could I have 3 matcha please?
Mike: Yes, correct!
Me: Oh wow, a lot of baking for Xmas?
Mike: Me? No...
Me: Ok, then what are you using it for? Green tea?
Mike: Kinda, well I use it in my protein shake. It works well and gives me a boost of energy rather than a shot of ...
Me: Oh how interesting! It must be really healthy!
Mike: Yeah for sure, I use soya milk instead of milk milk!
Me: I definitely have to blog this ;)
Mike: Cool! Cheers!
Mike also shared with us his own protein shake recipe. Here is what you need:
1/4 tsp matcha powder
1 1/2 cup soya milk
1-2 scoops of whey protein (vanilla or natural)
Add all ingredients into blender (we like to use our bullet)! And voila instant morning shake!
