Even the samurai back in the day made use of the power of matcha green tea: In Japan, the tea plants are shaded for 4 weeks prior to the harvest to make the leaves more aromatic, valuable and greener. After that, the leaves are ground into the finest powder and mixed with white rice chocolate. This then turns into a green drinking chocolate with a fantastic green tea aroma. This creation is of course vegan.
Preparation - with milk or vegan
Heat up 200-300ml of milk or plant-based alternative for each bar of drinking chocolate. Combine the chocolate and the liquid, mix well using a food processor or a hand mixer and your chocolate smoothie will be ready in no time!
In a small pan, bring 200ml milk or plant-based alternative to the boil, add one chocolate bar and combine well with a hand blender. Briefly boil one more time and the chocolate drink is ready!
Heat up 200-300ml of milk or plant-based alternative. Add a bar of drinking chocolate to the liquid and let it steep for 1-2 minutes, then whisk until the bar is dissolved. Let the drink sit for another 1-2 minutes to allow all the flavours to infuse before giving it another good whisk. Enjoy!
