I pretty much like everything with matcha, tea (of course!), ice cream, or pancakes. Matcha powder is fine powder made from green tea leaves. It has so many health benefits, boosting metabolism, burning calories and detoxifying. I normally get my matcha powder from our local tea shop. I love this cinnamon matcha powder. They also have turmeric matcha and vanilla matcha powder too. I think I will give them a try when I visit the shop next time.
The cinnamon gives extra flavor to the normal matcha powder. It’s perfect for brewing a cuppa. I also love to use it in making desserts.These delicious cinnamon matcha puddings are very easy to make. Prepare the day before, leave it in the fridge. They are ready to serve the next day. I serve it with fresh fruits, cream or both. It’s a wonderful treat for myself, my friends, or my guests.
Gelatin powder is used in this recipe. Please feel free to use gelatin sheets or agar agar. When I pour the final mixture into glasses, I use a fine strainer to make sure I get rid of any lumps. This step will guarantee a silky smooth texture for the puddings.
I hope you like it. Enjoy! 🙂
