The first time i did try Matcha Green Tea was during a trip to Kuala Lumpur, I was going to have a Café Latte but ended up with a very nice Matcha, recommended by the shop owner. That was the very beginning of my Matcha adventure, and the following days i was drinking Matcha in stead of coffee, and I enjoyed every sip of it.

After returning to Denmark, I was searching for places to get the Matcha powder, and at that time it was not very easy to find, so i ended up ordering some from a tea shop in Singapore, later i have found some places to get the powder around here, but it is very expensive compared to the one i use to order abroad, or take with me home when i am out there.

During my search i also came across a lot of websites, telling about the benefits about consuming this green superfood. What i found out are that Matcha Tea is an easy and simple way to add powerful health benefits to your everyday diet.

Most of the Matcha i tried in Malaysia was Matcha Latté, so what i have been trying to do, are to find the one recipe that suits my own taste, and after trying a lot of different recipes, i modified some of those to fit my own taste because i don't drink milk, and what i came up with are this:

 A North Korean Girl's Journey to Freedom



“In the free world, children dream about what they want to be when they grow up and how they can use their talents. When I was four and five years old, my only adult ambition was to buy as much bread as I liked and eat all of it.”

This is something I have been seeing all over the Internet for quite some time, so i just had to try - Avocado Chocolate Mousse.

Yes, I know, - It sounds crazy, but it actually work, and even work very well, and not at least, it is super tasty, and you won't get all the dairy, and besides that Avocado Chocolate Mousse are an excellent vegan desert, that only takes very little time to put together.

I am not sure when I did taste this for the very first time, but this works for me, both as a snack, but also as a sidedish for something else.

It is a fine little dish on the table, and those potatoes always make their way to peoples plates.
