#SummerofMatcha – Matcha Green Tea Mojito!

Sometimes blogging is hard work, and sometimes it involves drinking rum.

#SummerofMatcha Matcha Mojito

I’m all about the matcha; I drink it every day and its one of my favourite superfood products out there, so when I discovered EatCleanTea, and found that they offer a range of flavours as well as pure green, I was so excited to be a part of their #SummerofMatcha competition and I jumped at the chance to try their Mint + Matcha blend!

Why is matcha so great?

Matcha is a super concentrated pure green tea, that has health benefits from an increased metabolism to clearer skin, and can enhance concentration and calm the mind!

Now I don’t know about you, but when I think of summer and mint, I think beach, BBQs and mojitos, and thus, the Matcha Mojito was born!

#SummerOfMatcha Matcha Mojito

You will need:

  • Matcha + Mint
  • 1 lime, cut into two halves
  • A handful of mint leaves
  • White rum (you can substitute lemonade to make it a virgin!)
  • Soda water
  • Ice cubes
  • Sugar (optional)

Run around the rim of your glass with one of the lime halves, then dip into sugar to coat the top. Fill the glass with ice and mint leaves, and using a muddler of long spoon, mash them around a bit to release the mint flavours!

In a small glass or bowl, whisk together the juice of one lime half and a scoop of M+M; it’ll be lovely and green! Add a mint leave or two, and whisk a little more, then pour this into your prepared glass.

Add 1 measure of rum, squeeze the remaining lime half into the glass, and top the mix up with soda water. Give it a stir, chuck in a straw and enjoy!

That’s right, a cocktail with health benefits!

Friday Favourite Five – Winter Warmer Hot Drinks

I know we’re supposed to be coming out of winter, but the weather seems to think otherwise, and temperatures still seem to be dropping.. Its the time of year for curling up under the covers with a cute mug of your favourite hot drink, and since I am the anomaly that doesn’t really drink tea or coffee, my favourites are all a little different!

1. Gu Salted Caramel hot chocolate

This is a carton of chocolate dreams! Pre-mixed and ready for the microwave, this creamy delight is just so delicious!

2. Peanut Hottie

My love of peanut butter is really no secret, so this discovery has opened up a whole new world of hot drink goodness for me!

3. Options hot chocolate

The proof is in the name; there are so many flavours to choose from in both instant and ‘add milk’ varieties, and I love the little sachets for taking to work with me!

4. Teapigs Rooibos Creme Caramel tea

I’m really not a tea drinker, but this real leaf tea is so sweet and perfect for a nice milky drink before bed!

5. Whittards Luxury White hot chocolate

When a regular hot choc won’t hit the spot, I love white hot chocolate! Creamy and delicious!

Do you have a go-to winter warmer?
