After a much needed 2 month break from social media (more on that later), I’m back with my very first affiliate marketing collaboration and an updated website! I’ve teamed up with Zulay Kitchen, who gifted me two of their products in exchange for a recipe post. Being the overachiever that I am, I decided to do not one but FIVE recipes using their matcha green tea powder and milk frother.
I loathe recipes sites that tell life stories, go off on tangeants and list the recipe at the very bottom. I’ll save you that frustration and list the ingredients and recipe via photos with some helpful notes at the bottom of each of them. Let’s start with some details on the products I received.

-Use to froth milk, mix protein powder drinks, aerate eggs and whisk matcha.
-Works on all types of milk and other dairy products like butter.
NOTE: 1 tsp may be to intense for some. Start off with 1/2tsp of matcha and adjust to taste. You can also add some sugar or honey.
MATCHA LATTE (Hot & Iced)
NOTE: YES, I’m counting this as two recipes lol. As mentioned above, if you’re new to matcha, 1 tsp may be too intense. Start off with 1/2tsp of matcha and adjust to taste. Add sugar/honey if you’d like.
For hot lattes, don’t use boiling water as it makes the matcha bitter. Water temperature should be approximately 175F. Make sure to use a tall glass or French press to froth milk as the volume will increase (SLIDE 2). I usually fill a French press a quarter or third of the way. For iced matchas, you don’t need to froth cold milk. I just got froth happy with my new toy. Pour in whatever order you prefer (SLIDE 3).
MATCHA SUGAR COOKIES
NOTE: Make sure to cover your dough when you rest it in the fridge. Some oven temperatures are off. It may be helpful to buy an oven thermometer. I use a toothpick to check if the cookie is done. If a prick comes out clean, you’re good to go!
MATCHA + WHITE CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES
NOTE: In STEP 5, I slowly added portions of the dry mix and folded it into the wet mixture. I did this about 4-5 times. For STEP 6 You can also add in 1/4 cup of chopped macadamia nuts. You are more than welcome to rest the cookie dough in the fridge but the cookie doesn’t spread out as much as it bakes (SLIDE 6). I also use the toothpick prick method to make sure my cookies are baked through. Just keep in mind that if it doesn’t come out clean it is probably just white chocolate.
Good luck and happy baking and sipping! Lattes and cookies don’t have to look perfect to taste delicious so don’t stress if you don’t get it right the first time. Thanks again for reading my first live post on this website.
