5 Naturally Green Dessert Recipes
Matcha green tea powder is the best natural green food color. The pretty color combined with the delicate flavor are just perfect in these Matcha Green Tea Cupcakes. Finished with light and fluffy vanilla whipped cream topping, they taste like a Matcha Frappuccino in cupcake form.
The recipe for these White Chocolate Chip Matcha Cookies is based on my favorite Chocolate Chip Cookies, but with an Asian twist. The creaminess of white chocolate chips is a great compliment to the delicate Matcha flavor in these cookies. Plus they’re green!
I guess you can see the pattern here. Matcha to the rescue again in these Green Tea Coconut Mochi. These chewy little treats are made with coconut milk and sweet rice flour with a touch of delicate Matcha green tea powder. Not only that the green color is completely natural, these treats are also gluten free!
These pretty and healthier Baked Green Tea Donuts are easy to make with minimal clean up. Dress them up in Chocolate Ganache because what donut goes without a glaze?
Last but not least, we have something that not made with Matcha! These Pistachio Cupcakes are one of my absolute favorite recipe to create. Pistachio doesn’t give a prominent green like Matcha does, it’s more subtle but it made up for it with the buttery delicious nutty pistachio flavor. I guarantee you’ll love these.
