I am absolutely obsessed with raw desserts! They are so easy to make that even if you make a mistake its very unlikely that it will come out bad. All you need is one basic recipe and then you can play with ingredients to adjust the flavors to your liking.

While staying in Tokyo, I purchased loads of green-tea flavoured desserts. Honestly, I am simply mad about them, so the idea of making a matcha-flavored raw cake came to my mind the  moment I tried my very first slice of a home-made raw blueberry tart.

I was lucky enough to attend a Japanese tea ceremony, which centers on the preparation and serving of matcha. Matcha tea is a powdered green tea made from the nutrient-rich young leaves. Nowadays matcha is used in cooking, it adds flavor to desserts, noodles, coffee, smoothies, and much more. 

Matcha is full of antioxidants, it boosts metabolism and burns calories, it is rich in fiber and chlorophyll, it detoxifies the body and lowers cholesterol and sugar levels. It is also considered to be one of the most powerful super foods on the market.
