Maccha (pronounced "MAH-CHAH") is green tea powder - the kind used for the tea ceremony in Japan. It is a very fine powder, mixed directly into hot water to make tea. It is amazing as a tea, but it is also great as a spice/flavoring. In Japan, it is used in a wide variety of foods from candy and chocolates to meat and rice dishes.
My all-time favorite protein shake is made in a blender with the following ingredients:
*vanilla flavored protein powder
*vanilla ice cream
*frozen fruit (optional)
