These little Clean Eating Vegan Pistachio and Matcha Truffles are so easy to make and are loaded with lots of nutrients!
I was contacted by Kiss Me Organics to review their Organic Matcha – Green Tea Powder and create a new recipe and this is what I came up with.
Matcha Green Tea is not just for drinking…there’s lots of things you can make with it besides a cup of tea.
Their Organic Matcha is “culinary grade” which means it’s perfect for lattes, smoothies and baking.
The last recipe I made with it was my Matcha Green Tea Chocolate Chip Brownies, and they were really good, but this time I wanted to make a super nutritious no-bake treat.
If you aren’t familiar with Matcha Green Tea Powder, it is awesome. It really takes your antioxidant intake to a whole new level…137% more anti-oxidants than brewed green tea!
It was equally comparable to other matcha tea I have purchased in the past and I was very pleased with the color, quality and taste of the Organic Matcha from Kiss Me Organics.
Here’s some information about their product :
