MatchaGT (Green Tea) Cupcakes

MatchaGT Green Tea There are all sorts of wonderful reasons to desire a green cake or cupcakes. MatchaGT is a great flavor and adds natural coloring!

MatchaGT powder gives you all the benefits of brewed tea by consuming the wholeness of the leaves (a concentration of green tea’s antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and fibers) plus a revitalizing energy boost.

We found these cakes/cupcakes to be better without frosting.  Our love for frosting lead us to agree a dollop of MatchaGT Buttercream frosting was more than enough on it’s top.  I think honestly just a light sprinkle pattern of MatchaGT would suffice to decorate the top.
Try these as cupcakes for a midday energy boost!

About MatchaGT by ShelleRae

Welcome! I am ShelleRae and I am very excited you are here. I joined the Smoothie Essentials team about 5 years ago now. Always health conscious and into prevention versus medication it seemed natural when the opportunity came up to take on the creation of this blog and the Smoothie Essentials blog as well. As mother to three and surrogate to many more I've practiced much of what I write on sometimes with great success and other times with a bit less. My friends and family are my test kitchen and my facts are most often from WebMD - they seem to have a fairly accurate and conservative approach. MatchaGT – the super premium Matcha Green Tea Introducing Matcha GT, the super premium Matcha Green Tea. Matcha GT is nature’s natural source of energy and antioxidants. Used for centuries in Japanese tea ceremonies, Matcha provides a powerful pick-me-up plus antioxidants and other health benefits to keep the body, mind and spirit in perfect balance. While many forms of green tea are strained or brewed, Matcha GT uses the whole tea leaf providing the full benefits and bold taste of whole green tea powder. My inspiration comes from others who also are striving to live a better life through lifestyle changes.
