Matcha Crépes | Matcha Maiden

In a time of the immense use of superfoods and powders, it is essential for us to guarantee that these foods are indeed, super. One guaranteed superfood powder is Matcha powder. Matcha powder has been shown to help boost the immune system and fight free radicals in the body, boost your metabolism, assists in sustaining energy over prolonged periods of time, promote focus, and is comprised of numerous vitamins and minerals. For years I had been consuming cups and cups of green tea, without knowing that matcha powder is actually comprised of 10x the amount of nutritional value compared to one cup of green tea! Plus, it tastes super delicious! Since finding out more about matcha powders, I have been hooked!

I've happily collaborated with Matcha Maiden to bring you this recipe!

Method

  1. Place all dry ingredients in a clean bowl and mix well until combined.
  2. Pour the Aquafaba in a blender, then pulse blend for 30 seconds. It should have a frothy texture at this point.
  3. Add remaining wet ingredients to the blender, minus the Apple Cider Vinegar, then blend.
  4. Pour out wet ingredients into the dry ingredient bowl, then whisk until well combined.
  5. Add the Apple Cider Vinegar, then mix.
  6. Allow the mixture to rest for 5 - 10 minutes.
  7. During this period, prepare your matcha nice cream: place the bananas, dates, matcha powder and mylk in a blender, then blend until well-combined. Place in a bowl, then allow it to rest in the freezer.
  8. 2 minutes prior to completing the rest time for the mixture, pre-heat your pan or crépe maker on medium heat.
  9. Using a ladle, slowly pour out one scoop of the mixture on the pan. Once the mixture has been poured, place the bottom of the ladle gently on the crepe, then move the ladle in a circular motion to develop a circle structure. Allow to cook for 2 minutes, then flip. Repeat this step until all the crépe batter has been used.
  10. Add any desired toppings, plus your matcha nice cream, then enjoy!
