Matcha is my new favorite thing. I’ve had matcha desserts before but nothing quite like Correxiko Skinny Matcha powder. But what is Matcha powder exactly? Matcha is produced from special green tea leaves. The whole leaves are finely ground down to create Matcha powder and the powder is then mixed with water, so the whole leaf is consumed, maximizing the nutrient intake. Due to the direct consumption of the leaves, this Matcha powder makes a more potent source of nutrients.
Here is some nutrient/ benefits breakdown, in case you aren’t convinced yet
• Matcha contains 137 times more antioxidants than normal Green Tea (weight for weight)
• Exercising immediately after drinking Matcha can burn up to 25% more fat
• Contains 60 times more Antioxidants than Spinach
• Contains 7 times more Antioxidants than Dark Chocolate
• Has 17 times more antioxidants than Blueberries
• Skinny Matcha is raw, organic, additive-free and vegan
• Great for energy boost, rich in bioflavanoids and micro-nutrients
Matcha has a very unique flavor, it is a bit bitter but consumed as a drink or a topping, it adds a lovely flavor. I am an energy junkie, and Correxiko Skinny Matcha is without a doubt, a new favorite for that! While looking for inspiration to make a drink, I came up with a fantastic afternoon or morning pick me up drink that’s diary free, vegan and refreshing. I call it the Matcha Horchata, inspired by my love for cinnamon and almond milk.
In a blender mix 8 oz of chilled almond milk, one teaspoon of Correxiko Skinny Matcha, a pinch of cinnamon powder + nutmeg, and sweetener of choice (I used 1/3 of a teaspoon of organic brown sugar). Serve with ice cubs or on its own. Enjoy!
I’d love to add the “beauty” benefits of Matcha, and there are several, verified and proven scientifically. First, Matcha is rich in theanine, an amino acid that helps in memory support – amazing. Secondly, Matcha powder is a safe detox for conditions like acne and aging. Matcha is very rich in chlorophyll, a potent detoxifier, that according to sources found at the Huffington Post, removes harmful toxins and fights free radicals that damage cells needed to protect our skin. Matcha is particularly good for acne due to its ability to decrease sebum production. Anyone with concerns about fine lines and wrinkles will love the effects of matcha green tea too — matcha green tea protects our largest organ from harmful UV rays that encourage premature aging and hyper-pigmentation.
