It’s your lucky day!
In honor of St. Patrick’s Day this Thursday, I’ve created not 1 but 2 GREEN themed TREATS for you to double fist while celebrating.
Matcha Green Tea Latte recipe HERE
Mint Chocolate Cookie recipe HERE
Matcha is powdered green tea. It’s a peppy & concentrated version of green tea meaning it has higher amounts of antioxidants, fiber, & chlorophyll than your usual varieties. Matcha also contains the polyphenol EGCG, a thermogenic component believed to boost metabolism. Burn, baby burn! It’s an awesome alternative to afternoon coffee because it has 1/2 the caffeine of coffee & contains L-Theanine, an amino acid that helps keep you focused & alert.
I’m having childhood nostalgia…these mint cookies remind me of thin mint girl scout cookies but BETTER. Get this: Research suggests mint’s refreshing scent can bust a craving, which makes this cookie the most perfect after-dinner dessert.
