3. Matcha

I adore matcha. 2016 proved I am not the only one. Living in Japan made me realize how crazily useful this green tea powder can be – and not just for drinking. You might have noticed matcha showing up in desserts, like matcha ice cream, pastries, crèmes, and cookies.

However, I have also sprinkled matcha into coffee, chai tea, on apples, and swirled it into peanut butter. Though the antioxidant-packed powder can be bitter by itself, adding it to cereal or yogurt amplifies the health benefits and brings out the natural flavor.
