… sort of.
I suppose now is as good a time as any to get into the week’s breakfasts. Poaching came back for an encore, and it joined a new friend: homemade green tea ice cream!
When I was at Pinkberry last weekend, I was so sad that they were no longer offering green tea frozen yogurt. I asked for green tea powder sprinkled on the top of my original, but it wasn’t the same. I stopped into a gourmet tea shop later that day and saw the teeniest jar of green tea powder on sale for $20. Ummmmmmmmm, no.
Enter Mr. Coffee. I dumped the contents of a handful of green teabags into my nut coffee bean grinder:
And then whirred and whirred and whirred until I got what I wanted:
My very own green tea powder!
I mixed it in with yogurt and a dab of honey (it was a little bitter straight):
With the famed urban garden in the background:
And it later made its way to breakfast (honey-free this time and hidden!) alongside a poached egg eaten over maple-date oatmeal with SOTBPPBDCS butter:
(With cherries and CSA blueberries of course)
I loooove how the SOTBPPBDCS butter melts, mmmmmmmmmmm.
Another morning, I had the green tea froyo with blueberries …
… accompanied by a coriander-sprinkled poached egg over the last 1/2 Arnold’s sandwich thin with more SOTB butter (and cherries!) …
Yay for bright yellow farm-fresh yolks!
Another’s morning’s worth:
I had to take that one to go because I was running late:
And one last day of it!
At first, I didn’t think the powder tasted much like green-tea-flavored foods, but it has really grown on me!!!! I love it love it love it and want to eat it every morning 😀
What do you like to do with tea (aside from drink it)?
P.S. I love it when my husband (Mister Softee) puts his foot down 😛
