Antioxidant-Packed Vibrant Green Matcha Cheesecake!

I have so many good memories of eating cheesecake as my family and I would often bake it for birthday celebrations. Now a days, my love and passion for both cheesecake and Matcha has lead me to make the most delicious creation of all:


The Matcha Cheesecake.


Cheesy, creamy, floraly, umami, sweet - the Matcha cheesecake is not only delicious and stunningly vibrant green, but it is also overflowing with antioxidants. For this cheesecake, I decided to use our high-quality ceremonial grade for a vibrant green color, sweet taste, and added health benefits!


Let’s check out the recipe!
