These Matcha Donuts Contain A Very Special Ingredient

by christina anania, @evolvewithtee - May 10, 2019

I donut know about you, but I can’t name anything better than enjoying a freshly baked donut – can you?

Thanks to the popularity of Instagram and wellness enthusiasts’ healthy takes on junk food, donuts are everywhere. And it’s not surprising. Who doesn’t love a deliciously soft donut that’s topped off with icing and sprinkles? I know I do.

One of my favorite things to do while traveling is to look for the best donut shop in town, snap a picture, and sip on my tea as I indulge in all of the wonderful flavors that particular donut has to offer. One that I have yet to find on the market is a matcha-infused donut. Matcha is one of my favorite ingredients to bake with, as it is loaded with antioxidants and always elevates the flavor of baked goods. Even though matcha tastes earthy, this Matcha Donut recipe will still satisfy anyone with a sweet tooth.

In case you’re new to matcha, here are a few fast facts: Matcha is essentially finely ground green tea leaves. What makes it a highly coveted ingredient is the presence of L-theanine, an amino acid that promotes an “alert calm” in users instead of a jolt and crash, which is sometimes the case with other caffeinated drinks. This Matcha Donut recipe contains two scoops of Vital Proteins® Matcha Collagen, a product that combines nutrient-rich matcha with collagen.

Are you ready take a DIY approach and make these Matcha Donuts? We promise you’ll fall in love at first bite.
