KissMe Organics - Organic Matcha



*sponsored

Matcha has become extremely popular over the last year or two. It has a lot of great health benefits. I am striving to be healthier this year. I am also looking for something to replace my Monster energy drink addiction. KissMe Organics sent me their Organic Matcha to try out. This Organic Matcha can be used in baking, smoothies, lattes and so much more. 

KissMe Organics Matcha benefits include:

ALL DAY ENERGY WITH INCREASED FOCUS

Matcha provides 4 to 6 hours of mild steady energy as it acts as both a stimulant and a relaxant. This is ideal for focusing on whatever the day throws your way.

METABOLISM BOOST

Consuming matcha green tea can increase thermogenesis (the body's own rate of burning calories) from a normal 8%-10% of daily energy expenditure, to between 35% and 43% of daily energy expediture.

IMPROVED SKIN HEALTH

​Scientists have discovered that Matcha Green Tea helps protect the skin from harmful UVrays, while improving blood flow and oxygen levels lifting the overall quality of the skin.

137x THE ANTIOXIDANTS OF BREWED GREEN TEA

Antioxidants are essential as you age to boost your body's natural defenses against oxidation. Researchers have found that a high level of dietary antioxidants can prevent many age-related diseases.
 
I can certainly use all of those benefits! I was not really sure what I wanted to do with the Matcha..there are so many options. I thought about adding it to some brownies. However, I eat brownies at night and that would be a bad time to consume something that gives you energy. I like the idea of smoothies, but I rarely make them because my blender is in desperate need of an upgrade. I decided just to mix the Matcha with a drink that I like. I was originally thinking it would be great with Lemonade. Then, I had an even better idea:


I have created the Matcha Mojito and it is delicious! This Crystal Light Mojito mix is something I drink regularly. It has a nice light flavor with a hint of mint. The mint from the Mojito mixes extremely well with the Matcha. I use about 3/4 teaspoon of Matcha with one glass of Mojito. I use a mixing glass with a metal ball in the bottom to guarantee that the Matcha is well dissolved in the mixture. It also makes the drink nice and foamy.


This Organic Matcha definitely packs a punch! I feel as though it gives me more energy than my typical Monster Rehab or a glass of tea. While I hope it is also improving my skin and boosting my metabolism, I have no way to measure that. This definitely seems like an easy and tasty way to improve my health and my energy.

I would definitely recommend trying KissMe Organics Matcha! You can buy it here on Amazon:
