A Matcha Hot Chocolate Recipe for St Patrick's Day #hotchocolate #recipe #green #stpatricksday

I couldn’t let the winter season get away from me without one more hot chocolate recipe (and this one is very different from the others). 

I’ve been saving this matcha hot chocolate recipe for a rainy day and now that St Patrick’s Day is around the corner, I thought this would be a good fit. Since it’s green and all!

  • 1/2 cup of white chocolate chips
  • 2 Packets of Matcha Powder from Trader Joes
  • 1/2 tsp of vanilla
