So, I really don’t know what happened but apparently St. Patrick’s Day is next week. I’m pretty sure it was JUST Valentine’s Day but what do I know? Before we know it, it will be Easter. St. Patrick’s day kind of snuck up on us this year but we knew we needed to do something to celebrate. It seems like mint is a popular St. Patrick’s Day flavor. Now, I love mint but we wanted to do something different this year. But what other flavoring is green?

That is when it hit me, green tea! We have never done anything green tea flavored. Kelly ran to our local Japanese market and bought a canister of Matcha powder. We decided to go with cream cheese swirl brownies. Can’t go wrong with brownies. We have never used matcha powder before but it worked like a charm. I brought these brownies to work but didn’t tell people what the green was. Everyone guessed green tea though so I was impressed. I was worried the flavor would not be prominent enough, but that was not the case at all. We went a little crazy with the matcha powder so you might be seeing some more green tea recipes from us coming up soon.

If you want to make a festive St. Patrick’s Day dessert but want to try something different, I think green tea is perfect!
