banana matcha pancakes + cashew yogurt syrup (v + gf)
I am always on the constant lookout for new products to try. This weeks great new find on sale for $2.99 each was Rebbl Drinks.
I have seen these little guys all over the 'gram lately and decided to give them a shot! I toted home a variety of flavors. Amongst them; Matcha Latte made with whole leaf green tea & coconut milk. Can you say, "yummmmm!"
So, usually I'm a drink whore. I buy them and suck 'em down before I even get to the first red light on the way home... (you know you do it too)
But this time I made it home without cracking one open and in the morning and idea came to me...."OMG.... Matcha Pancakes!"
Matcha has become quite the "Super-Herb" but can taste a bit grassy which is why putting them into your pancakes is perfect to get your feet wet with Matcha.
Plus Rebbl's Matcha Latte is sweet and creamy which just makes for the moistest pancakes, The consistency of these is probably closer to actual cake!
Why Matcha Rocks: Matcha is the whole leave of a young green tea plant. This means is has more chlorophyll which has detoxifying and cleansing properties. It is also a great source for clean energy and is a great replacement to your coffee addiction!
