- Hi, guys. I'm Michel and today we are making a little quirky, cute breakfast or snack called matcha butter. It's a super quick, super easy, tasty, slightly sweet snack that you put on a rice cake and top with some beautiful toppings. Let's get started. We are literally dumping everything in here. Smearing it and topping it. We're starting with some unsweetened coconut yogurt. That's just gonna go right in. Our sweetener of choice today is honey but if you're vegan you can use agave or maple. I like honey. To thicken this and hold it together, I have some potato starch here. I also have shortening made out of coconut so it's completely vegan shortening. Makes it really thick, really creamy. An important ingredient is I have cashew butter. But it's important that you find the lightest color cashew butter that you can because after you mix this with the green, if kind of a brown cashew butter, the color's not gonna be the cutest. Our most important ingredient: matcha. That's gonna go in. And then last but not least, for a little bit of sweet vanilla flavor, you can do vanilla extract or vanilla paste. That's gonna go in as well. Now this is a mess. We blend it. See if we can make this cohesive. You might have to open it and scrape down the sides a little bit because that matcha just likes to explode all over the walls. Let's give it another blend. Yes. It's looking good. I just got a little mason jar because this is enough for quite a few matcha rice cakes and you can keep this in the fridge for a couple weeks. Let's spoon this in our mason jar. That didn't happen. This is what our matcha butter looks like. Once it's all combined and together. It took me a lot of different recipe tries to make this not look brown, but we got it. So, now it's time to decorate. We're just gonna scoop a little bit onto here like actual butter or anything else you put on a rice cake. Be generous with it too because you've got your protein in here. This is great for the morning too because matcha is super concentrated caffeine source. 'Cause it's like green tea but instead of just the residue from steaming it, you're consuming the whole leaf. Once we got this on here looking all pretty, we get to decorate it. So what I have, is I have black sesame seeds, coconut flakes, hemp seeds, because I love hemp seeds. More honey, and some edible flowers. Isn't that adorable? This is where you just have fun. It's also like decorating cookies for breakfast. Next I'm gonna do some coconut flakes. Some hemp seeds. These are also a great protein source. Alright, and last but not least, black sesame seeds because it kind of plays with matcha well. And then I'm just gonna do a little bit of honey drizzle on top. And it ends up kind of almost like a breakfast cookie, but healthy. Let's try it. I am ready to get some sesame seeds in my teeth. Uh huh. It's a mess. It's really good. What I really love about this is, it kind of tastes a little bit of a cookie enough to get you excited to get out of bed in the morning. There's a little bit of vanilla, a little bit of sweetness. But also a ton of super foods. So, you can make this in advance. Put it in your fridge and you can literally have breakfast in 30 seconds. I hope you try it.
