Even though this Sweet Tahini and Matcha Spread doesn’t look very exciting…the taste is!
I’ve made several recipes with it, but the possibilities are unlimited!
You could spread it on your favorite bread, bagel or toast, drizzle it over a salad, add it to a smoothie or try it in one of my new recipes…coming soon!
Now just so you will know what to expect, you would really need to like the taste of tahini to enjoy this because…it’s tahini, but it’s sweet if that helps.
And I added the matcha green tea powder to give it extra antioxidants, without overly changing the flavor.
Tahini is just ground up sesame seeds and it’s really easy (and cheaper!) to make at home using only a food processor.

Tip #2: You will need to store the tahini in an air-tight container in the refrigerator, and it may become hard (due to the coconut oil), but just leave it out on your counter top at room temperature before using, or put it in a bowl of warm water to soften it up.
