Coffee dalgona was all the rage last year and for those who didn't drink coffee, Matcha was the next best thing!
Here's the recipe we followed to make our own vegan version.
- Drain 1 can of chickpea liquid and beat until fluffy
- Mix 1 tablespoon of Everyday Matcha with 2 tablespoons of water and make a paste
- Add in to fluffy chickpea liquid along with 1 tablespoon of sugar and beat again to combine
- Serve over ice and milk of your choice, scooping carefully into the glass
- Ps: how amazing is Aquafaba aka chickpea liquid!
5) Matcha Cold Brew
Matcha Cold brew style is super easy with our handy Matcha Shaker . Simply:
- Push a scoop of Matcha through the provided tea sieve.
- Remove the tea sieve then add around 1/2 cup of hot water (no hotter than 80c) and shake well to dissolve Matcha
- Add another cup (less or more to taste) of chilled water and shake again
- Enjoy your refreshing cold brew Matcha
