Living Harvest Hempmilk and Hemp Frozen Dessert

Ready to be Tempt-ed by some great, healthy products?  Tempt is a line of delicious non-dairy “milks” and “ice creams” made from hemp seeds.  Jennifer from Living Harvest Foods was kind enough to send me a couple of coupons.

Unsweetened Vanilla Tempt Hempmilk is a delicious low-calorie beverage (60 calories in 1 cup) while also being a convenient source of healthy fats (6 grams of polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fat in 1 cup) that come naturally from hemp seeds.

With my other coupon I purchased the Coffee Biscotti flavor from Tempt’s frozen dessert lineup (of which there are many tantalizing flavors).  I absolutely fell in love with this.  Not only do I love coffee ice cream (old school Coffee Toffee by Ben & Jerry’s, anyone?) but this has chocolatey cookie chunks a great mouth feel (thanks to those natural fats from hemp seeds).   Still, just 140 calories per 1/2 cup serving.

If you’ve ever tried a hempmilk-based product, I’d love to hear about it; comment below!

Matcha Source Green Tea Powder

Most of us have had green tea, but how about green tea powder?

I had been noticing all sorts of recipes that called for the stuff, but couldn’t locate it at any grocery stores.  I even popped into some tea/spice shops in Chinatown to no avail.

Matcha Source to the rescue!  They sell a powdered green tea that is made of Japanese whole leaves, picked in the springtime and then ground into a fine dust.

I used a sample Wendy sent me to whip up some delicious hot green tea lattes.  The green tea flavor, as expected, is pronounced–but not overpowering, and not bitter at all.

The website has myriad other recipes using powdered green tea, too, ranging from butternut squash and flavored salt to ice cream and truffles.  And remember, anything made with green tea is healthy!
