If you're head over heels for matcha, you're going to love these amazing matcha dessert recipes. This list includes everything from matcha popsicles to matcha cheesecake and, of course, a matcha Frappuccino!
What is Matcha powder?
Matcha powder is a fine powder made from dried, young green tea leaves. Since you're ingesting the leaves instead of discarding them (like green tea bags), you're ingesting all the good-for-you nutrients! Matcha is jam-packed with disease-fighting antioxidants and compounds.
It also happens to taste amazing in desserts! If you haven't baked with matcha yet, you're in for a real treat.
Are these recipes gluten-free?
All these recipes are either gluten-free or easily made so. Many of them are healthy, vegan, and dairy-free as well! There's really something for everyone in this delicious list of matcha dessert recipes.
To make the recipes gluten-free, be sure to use certified gluten-free oats, gluten-free rice cereal, and gluten-free oreos (for the mini cheesecakes).
