If you regularly go to coffee shops or scroll through drink recipes on TikTok, you’ve probably heard of matcha. Matcha consists of a finely ground green tea powder, typically mixed with water. Matcha can be made into a hot tea, an iced latte, as soft serve, as a dessert or as a cocktail.

Not only is matcha versatile, but it’s also fairly inexpensive compared to drinks like coffee and regular lattes. At a coffee shop, an iced latte can run up to around $8-$10, while a matcha is typically between $6-$8. If you’re wanting to skip the expensive drinks, try your hand at making matcha recipes at home. As we take today to celebrate National Matcha Day, here are a few of our favorite recipes from drinks to desserts.

What You’ll Need:

  • Ladyfingers
  • Matcha
  • Heavy whipping cream
  • Mascarpone cheese
  • Sugar
  • Vanilla
  • Water

Matcha + Tiramisu = a match made in heaven. This dish is the perfect dessert for a party, book club, birthday dinner or to make for the matcha lovers in your life. Start by making your matcha cream. Combine your mascarpone, sugar, matcha and vanilla until it’s smooth. In a separate bowl, mix your heavy cream until it reaches a whipped cream texture. Fold your cream into the mascarpone matcha mixture. Before mixing, try to set a little bit of your whipped cream to the side in the fridge for later. You’ll want to add a little bit of vanilla to this to top the tiramisu with a sweet cream. Next, you’ll want to make a matcha mixture to dip the ladyfingers into. Combine matcha, hot water and sugar.

Now, to assemble tiramisu, start by layering your mascarpone cream into your dish. Dip the ladyfingers into the matcha water mix and layer on top of the cream in your dish. Add two or three layers depending on how deep your dish is. Set it in the fridge to let it chill. After it’s chilled, take it out of the fridge, along with your homemade whipped cream. Top the matcha tiramisu with dollops of cream. Sift some matcha powder over the top and enjoy.

Fill with ice on top, then pour in your choice of milk. Top with your matcha mixture and cold foam. Add a few fresh raspberries for garnish and enjoy. The best thing about this recipe is that you can always swap out the fruit if you don’t like raspberries. Strawberries or blueberries are a great alternative.
