Enjoy Halloween this year with a deliciously sweet and creamy matcha hot chocolate with a creepy green tinge the kids will just love.
Now, you are probably safe in assuming that we don’t use a lot of food coloring around here (except in science experiments, then it comes in very handy). So it can get a wee bit tricky when Halloween comes around and the little ones start requesting all these Pinterest worthy food and treats in all shades of ghoulish black, green and purple. I really wasn’t expecting these requests to come along so young!! Luckily, when matcha is on hand you can whip up a lovely weird green drink in no time. There are plenty of great brands out there, but my favorite is Dō Matcha.
My littles were absolutely delighted to be handed a bright green drink that looked (lets just admit it) disgusting by their standards, but tasted like a small child’s idea of heaven – white chocolate and milk. I had some gummy worms poking their heads out of the mugs for good measure, and let’s just say their day was made. I abstained from the gummy worms for my own drink, because half melted jelly-like creatures coming out of my hot chocolate is just….no, just no (and I wouldn’t recommend it for anyone over the age of 12 either 😛 ).
What are your go-to treats for halloween? Let me know if you give this one a try, I would love to hear all about it 🙂 Happy drinking!
