When you combine things that you love, magic happens. Continuing with my recent found love of matcha , I decided to create a healthy treat that tastes truly magical. Matcha covered strawberries are full of nutritional goodness. Using coconut butter as the base adds fiber, protein, and healthy fats. The matcha offers loads of antioxidants, vitamins, and trace minerals. With all of these benefits, there is no need to feel guilt with this tasty treat.
Matcha Covered Strawberries
(makes about 1 dozen)
- 12 strawberries, washed and dried
- 1/2 cup coconut butter (Coconut Manna by Nutiva is my favorite)
- 2 Tablespoons of maple syrup
- 2 Tablespoons of non-dairy milk
- 1 Tablespoon matcha powder
Place coconut butter in a small sauce pan over medium-low heat. Stir continuously until coconut butter melts. Once it becomes liquid, add maple syrup and stir to combine. Remove pan from heat and add matcha. Stir well. Add milk and stir once more until well incorporated. Dip strawberries into mixture being sure to coat completely. Place dipped strawberries on a parchment lined pan and refrigerate until set. Please note that these strawberries hold up best when they are kept chilled.
