A magical no-bake cheesecake, suitable for vegans too! The creamy coconut and cashew filling is cut through by the slightly sour passionfruit – and the turmeric enhances the colour and adds a little spice too.

  • 2 cups of passionfruit pulp (this is roughly 10 passionfruits)

  • ¼ cup milk of choice (we like almond – but you can use soy, rice, coconut or dairy)
  • ¼ cup macadamia nuts (optional, for a little extra crunch)

For the white chocolate icing:

  • ⅛ cup cacao butter
  • 3 tbsp milk of choice, as before
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup

To serve:

  • 4 tbsp desiccated coconut

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celcius.
  2. Mix the soaked and drained dates in a blender, until it becomes a smooth mixture.   
  3. Add the dates mixture into a bowl, with all the other ingredients – except the macadamia nuts. Mix well.
  4. Pour into a tin, lined with parchment paper. If using macadamia nuts, sprinkle them on top of the mixture. They will seep into the brownies as they bake.
  5. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes.  
  6. Take out of the oven and cool.
  7. For the icing, melt the cacao butter in a bowl.
  8. Add the milk and maple syrup, and mix until smooth.
  9. Drizzle the icing over the brownies.
  10. Finally, sprinkle the desiccated coconut on top of the brownies before serving.

Note: It is important you buy the matcha green tea powder from a high quality source so you receive the full health benefits and also so the flavour is not bitter. Low quality matcha can be very bitter. You can buy Zen Green Tea, premium, Japanese matcha green tea powder for the best price in Australia here.

Easy Matcha, Pear, Chocolate Pavlova Recipe

matcha pavlova recipe

Crunchy, sweet and loaded with yumminess, Pear and Chocolate Pavlova!

Ingredients

  • 4 Egg Whites
  • 1¼ cup Sugar
  • Pinch of Salt
  • ⅓ cup sliced Almonds,
  • 1 can (14.5 oz) Pear Halves, drained and syrup reserved
  • 1 cup (8 oz) Dark Chocolate Chips
  • 1½ cup Heavy Whipping Cream
  • 2 oz Powdered Sugar, sifted
  • 1 Vanilla Bean, split and seeds removed and reserved
  • Zest of ½ Orange
  • 2 Teaspoons Zen Green Tea Matcha
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Preheat oven to 150 degrees Celsius. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a very clean and dry bowl, whisk your egg whites with mixer until stiff peaks start to form.
  3. Slowly start adding the Sugar and Salt and continue to whisk for another 5 – 8 minutes until you have a glossy mixture with firm peaks. If you pinch a bit of the mixture between your fingers and it still feels grainy, then continue to mix for another couple of minutes until it feels smooth.
  4. On a prepared parchment lined baking sheet, spoon out Meringue mixture and spread around to be about 2 – 3 inches thick. Using the back of the spoon or rubber spatula, “swirl” the top to give it some peaks.
  5. Bake in the preheated 300F oven and bake for 45 minutes – 1 hour. The outside will crack and the inside will be sticky and slightly soft.
  6. Remove from oven and cool.
  7. In a small saucepan, melt the Chocolate with the reserved pear syrup and 1 teaspoon ground ginger until smooth and glossy. Let cool slightly.
  8. In a large bowl, using a mixer, beat the Whipping Cream, Vanilla seeds and sifted Powdered Sugar and sifted matcha together until soft peaks form. Do not over mix or you will end up with something more like butter.
  9. In a dry skillet, warm the Almond slivers. Set Aside.
  10. Cut the Pear Halves into 3 – 4 slices per half.
Assemble:
  1. Place the cool Meringue on your serving plate and top with half the  Matcha Whipped Cream and half the Chocolate.
  2. Add the pears and top off with the Almond slivers and the remaining Whipped Cream and Chocolate. Grate over the Orange Zest.
  3. Serve and Enjoy!

Tips: The Meringue base can be made up to 2 days in advance and kept in a dry place, covered. (I kept mine in an airtight container at room temperature). Try to assemble within 2 hours or less of your serving time for best.
Use any fresh berries or fruit in season instead of the Pears and try other types of nuts for a completely new dessert.
Ensure you use high quality matcha – Zen Green Tea offers free shipping and high quality, affordable matcha

Strawberry, Oat Matcha Muffin Recipe

matcha muffin recipe

This is one of our all time favourite matcha recipes by Thirsty for Tea.

Strawberry Oat Matcha Muffins

Makes 16 muffins. 

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cups sugar
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 2 Tbsp Zen Green Tea matcha, sifted
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/4 cup milk (I used unsweetened almond milk)
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 6 oz container of non-fat Greek yogurt
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil, in liquid state
  • 1 lb organic strawberries, diced into 1/4″ pieces
  • non-stick spray
  • sanding sugar, to finish (optional)

Equipment:

  • 2 mixing bowls
  • mixing spoon
  • 2- 12 cavity standard muffin tins
  • 16 cupcake liners
  • ice cream scoop (optional)
  • toothpick
  • cooling rack

Directions:

1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius. Place 8 cupcake liners in each tin, then lightly spray a coating of non-stick spray on them.

2. In one mixing bowl, mix together all the dry ingredients. In another mixing bowl, mix together all the wet ingredients. Slowly mix the wet ingredients into the dry until just mixed through. Gently mix in the diced strawberries. Use a spoon or ice cream scoop to fill the liners until the batter is just shy of the top rim of the liner (pretty much to the top). Sprinkle the tops with sanding sugar for a crunchy muffin crust.

3. Bake the muffins at 200 degrees Celsius for the first 10 minutes, then lower the heat to 80 degrees Celsius for approximately another 12-15 minutes until the tops are very lightly golden and a toothpick comes out clean. When the muffins are cool enough to handle, transfer them to a cooling rack. If you serve the muffins immediately they may tend to stick to the liners. Wait until they cool completely and they should easily release.

Matcha tea cake recipe

matcha tea cake recipe
Matcha Tea Cake Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup self raising flour
  • 1 teaspoon Zen Green Tea Matcha
  • 4 whole large eggs, at room temperature
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • Powdered sugar for dusting the top of the cake before serving, if desired

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius
  2. Sift the flour with the tea three times. Coat the bottom of a 9-inch round cake pan lightly with butter or non-stick spray.
  3. Place a round of parchment paper on the bottom of the pan and spray the parchment lightly. Set the pan aside.
  4. Place the eggs and sugar into a heatproof bowl. Place the bowl over a pot of simmering water (the bottom of the bowl should be above the level of the water). Whisking constantly, heat until the eggs and sugar feel warm to the touch (approximately room temperature). Using an electric mixer, beat until light in colour and texture, approximately tripled in volume. Then, gently but thoroughly, fold the dry ingredients into the egg foam without deflating, making sure that there is no undissolved flour lurking at the bottom of the mixing bowl.
  5. Immediately scoop the mixture into the prepared cake pan and bake for approximately 25 minutes, or until the cake tests done when a skewer is inserted into the centre. Cool on a rack. Dust with sifted powdered sugar just before serving, if desired.

Matcha and Raspberry Friand Recipe

matcha and raspberry friand recipe

FriandsMakes 9 small friands (using regular muffin moulds)
I filled them up to the 2/3 mark so they are pretty small but that’s the way I want them to be.  

This is a Japanese inspired version of one of my favourite tea cakes. I love how the cake is moist and flavourful. You need quite a bit of matcha powder for the flavour and the colour to come through. Raspberries go well with the matcha – it’s like the unexpected kick in acidity.

Ingredients:
95g unsalted butter, cubed
135g egg whites
150g granulated sugar
100g almond meal
60g flour
12g Zen Green Tea matcha
pinch of salt
Optional: Fresh/frozen raspberries

Method:
1. Grease your muffin tins thoroughly with butter and dust flour sparingly over it.
2. Prepare a Beurre Noisette (French for “browned butter”): Heat the butter in a pan over low-medium fire and allow it to cook until it is golden brown in colour. Turn off the fire and take it off the heat once it is golden brown, otherwise, it will go from golden brown to black very quickly. Allow the beurre noisette to cool to room temperature while you prepare the rest of the ingredients.
3. In a bowl, place sugar, flour and ground almond, matcha powder and salt together. Whisk the dry ingredients a little. Add in the (cooled) beurre noisette (including the brown sediments) and whisk to combine.
4. Add in the egg whites slowly while whisking till incorporated. You do not need to create too much volume in the egg whites. I do all this by hand as you just need the batter to come together.
5. Spoon the friands batter into the greased muffin moulds. Place a raspberry into the centre of the friand. Bake in a 190 degrees preheated oven for about 15 minutes, or until it springs back to touch.
6. Allow it to cool slightly in the muffin tins before unmoulding.  Cool them completely on wire racks before serving.
