This simple dessert is not only light, sugar free and utterly delicious, it will also give you a serious antioxidant boost: Matcha Pistachio Frozen Yogurt Bark.
I am a matcha convert. Ever since I found out that 1 cup of matcha tea delivers the same amount of antioxidants as 10 cups of regular tea, I have started ordering the stuff in bulk. Friends, from a certain age onwards we need all the help we can get.
Conveniently, matcha also happens to be delicious. Have you tried it? Once you embrace that steamy, grassy taste, there just isn’t anything better to wake up to.
As you know, I am constantly thinking about healthier desserts and I get intensely excited about playing around with recipes to make them sugar free yet just as tasty.
This one is worth a fanfare. Hello, Matcha Pistachio Yogurt Bark!
First things first – what is Matcha?
Matcha is a stone-ground powdered green tea used in traditional Japanese tea ceremonies. According to the 8th century Zen priest Eisai, who introduced the tea to Japan, matcha is “the ultimate mental and medical remedy and has the ability to make one’s life more full and complete”.
Apart from giving you a heavy-duty antioxidant boost, matcha
- increases energy levels and focus
- regulates blood sugar levels & lowers cholesterol
- is anti-ageing & detoxifying
- aids weight loss.
I know. Matcha seriously is almost too good to be true.
This extremely refreshing, light, sugar free and low carb Matcha Pistachio Yogurt Bark is so easy and quick to make, it really is on a par with my chocolate avocado mousse and the strawberry coconut mousse.
All you need is a little bit of patience until your matcha yogurt has turned into a bark!
Which can be difficult. Therefore, I suggest making a little extra so you can have a bowl of it straight away. Together with a cup of matcha tea, of course.
