The Delicious Matcha Dessert that Doesn't Need Baking
For a sophisticated St. Paddy's shake, try this twist on the egg cream from Leela Cyd, author of the forthcoming cookbook Food with Friends. Antioxidant-rich Japanese matcha powder supplies the pale green color and delicate tea flavor. Blend it with sweetened condensed milk and fizzy seltzer, and you're sure to have a lucky day.
Total time: 5 minutes
Chill 2 large, ice-filled glasses in the freezer. In a screw-top, pint-size glass jar, combine matcha powder, milk and sweetened condensed milk. Shake to combine. Remove glasses from freezer, divide matcha mixture between them, and top each with ⅔ cup carbonated water. Stir and serve immediately.
