Maybe the sunshine makes me adventurous.
Maybe, maybe not. But something about the sunshine just changes everything! I'm now intrigued to brighten up my daily eating habits in any way I can. Orange essential oils are great for perking up your mood, so it seems only natural to incorporate it into matcha, right? Good energy + good attitude seems like the perfect equation for a good day. Maybe there is a formula for it, maybe not. But I'd say this recipe comes pretty darn close!
Prep time: 2 minutes || Cook time: 5 minutes || Total time: 7 minutes
-2 tsp matcha powder of choice (I used Ceremonial)
-1/4 cup hot water
-1 or 2 drops Orange essential oil
-3/4 cup milk of preference
*For those with a milk frother, put the milk into the frother and let stir.
-Put the one or two drops of Orange essential oil into the bottom of the cup.
-Make your matcha portion by putting the designated amount of matcha powder in a cup, add water, and stir until well mixed.
-Pour the foamy milk into the cup, and enjoy!
*For those without a milk-frother and in need of an easy way to make a matcha latte, check out the link below, which leads to a previous post by Kaylee on how to make the perfect matcha latte using a microwave and a mason jar!
-As a quick recap, start by making the matcha in the same way as before (add powder and water to a cup and stir).
-Microwave it for 30 seconds.
-Pour the designated milk into a mason jar and microwave for 60 seconds, until little foamy bubbles appear on the side. Screw on lid tightly, and shake for a few minutes until the milk has doubled in size.
-Add to the cup with matcha and enjoy! Voila!
Bright and Sunny!
I would say that those are the two best methods of describing its flavor. The orange is subtle, but if you give it a little time, you'll taste it - I promise! Let it soak into your palette and see what you experience!
