#MatchaMay with teapigs : let's get juicy *

Hiiiiii my fellow matcha fans! :)

It's week two with teapigs matcha! How are we all doing? I'm still SO impressed with matcha. This week I have noticed a sharp decrease in my cravings; my skin and hair are also really starting to improve. Weight? Hm. We'll get to that at the end of the month I think.

For this update I have conjured up two new methods for you to get your daily matcha fix. I am absolutely obsessed with my juicer - and fruit in general - so I couldn't resist this one. 

Piña Colada Matcha Juice

For this you'll need: 
- 1 pineapple
- Coconut Water (I used Vita Coco)
- teapigs matcha
- crushed ice
- Aerolatte whisk

First off, prepare your pineapple for juicing by carefully removing the rind. I cut off the top and bottom, then slice down through with my biggest and sharpest knife. After the first cut you'll be able to see much better where you need to be aiming for, but don't stress too much over it. 

Slice your pineapple into reasonable pieces, so you have control over it in the juicer. If it's too small, it'll just go rogue and fly into the rind collector! We are going to use the rind so don't throw it away!!! Place half a glass of crushed ice into your juicing jug, so the second that juice is extracted it'll stay super fresh. Plus, let's face it, ice-cold juice is one of the best things ever....

From one small pineapple I got roughly 500ml of juice, which is pretty amazing! Give it a good stir with the ice to mix in the foamy top and give it a taste. Heavenly, right? It's about to become legendary! ;)

Top up your juice with coconut water. The health benefits of coconut water are off the charts, so overall, this juice is probably one of the best things to have with your breakfast. Overall, I made a litre! YUM.

Now it's time to add our matcha into this. I really think portioning out the matcha per glass is the best way to go, rather than dumping a few servings into the total amount. Why? It won't mix properly. Put your matcha serving into your glass and add a small amount of juice. Take your Aerolatte whisk and mix until the matcha has dissolved. You can add a little more juice as you go along if you're finding lumps. By the time you get to a full glass, you will have a pure Piña Colada Matcha Juice!

Now! What to do with the rind of the pineapple? 

Matcha Muesli!

I'll be the first to admit, this isn't the best looking recipe, but it tastes absolutely out of this world, so just have faith in me, ok? ;)

Take your pineapple rind from your juicer and add a serving of matcha. Mix it in really well.

Add a few tablespoons to a quarter cup of porridge oats.

To ease up the consistency, add a quarter cup of sweetened soya milk and mix well.

Ta da! If you like, you can top with some extra matcha pineapple mix. I did consider adding other fruits but the flavour from the fresh pineapple rind is so insane, you really don't need it.
