Raw Cacao + Matcha Snow Log

Updated: May 11, 2018



Seeing a lot of green lately? If you have been living under a rock, head to instagram and you’re guaranteed to see how many people are going green.  Matcha has a beautiful, deep and earthy flavour with a sweetness right at the end. It is said that this green beauty has one of the highest levels of antioxidants per serve compared to other super foods. It provides a mellow caffeine boost without the crashes like its cousin coffee. Loaded with the amino L-Theanine, it has the ability to create alertness but also promote relaxation. Its also packed with chlorophyll properties which may help with detoxification. Now that you know the benefits of this amazing green powder you will be using it in everything from lattes to sweet treats. For those who screw their noses up and tell me it taste like grass clippings wait until you have tried it with chocolate. This log is gluten free, vegan and paleo friendly.
