Where to Find Matcha in Dallas

I think I've posted about matcha frequently enough to warrant compiling a list of my favorite places to get matcha in Dallas (including ice cream)! As I mentioned in this post, matcha has a lot of health benefits, and I prefer it over coffee when I don't want to feel jittery. If you don't know matcha-bout the green tea scene, keep reading!

This is where I go most frequently when I need a matcha fix! I love watching them whisk the matcha right in front of you. I normally get a hot matcha latte with their almond milk that's pressed in-house. Honestly, this is my #1 spot for the perfect matcha latte because it has the strongest matcha essence out of any other shop I've been to.

Brewed + Pressed is 100% organic and plant-based, so there is no dairy here. Their matcha is unsweetened, but you can add agave or honey if you want. As for milk options, I love their almond milk or pumpkin seed milk (it tastes nothing like pumpkin and even almost tastes like dairy)!

Magnolias is another great spot for matcha lattes! I love sipping on a big ol' mug of hot matcha latte here while getting work done.

Pōk's matcha is actually my second favorite in Dallas. It's authentic, comes unsweetened (you can add sweetener), and I love the many ways you can get your matcha here: hot or iced with macadamia, coconut, or almond milk! You can also get it straight up ceremonial style or combined with lemonade, or lemon, ginger, and mint.

Sip | Stir Cafe is another great spot for matcha. You can get it unsweetened or sweetened also. I don't come here much for coffee, but it's a great spot for matcha nearby!

DONUT ICE CREAM SANDWICH. I came to try the matcha ice cream just for this post! The first time I came to Milk & Cream, I got the glazed donut sandwich with lavender ice cream and thought everything was way too sweet. I still think that's true, but when I tried it with the matcha, the slight bitterness of the matcha flavor and almond toppings really balanced out the sweetness of the donut. I would definitely come back for this combo.

Matcha Love is super impressive for all your matcha drink and dessert needs! They have matcha lattes, ceremonial matcha, a variety of canned matcha green tea drinks, and best of all... matcha ice cream! My favorite flavor is the hojicha (roasted green tea)!

Sweet Daze is an impressive and Instagram-worthy dessert bar right outside of Dallas! Their matcha lattes are on the sweeter side, of course. Make sure you stop by for their artisan donuts and soft-serve too!

It's always fun watching rolled ice cream being made! I love that the matcha here isn't too sweet, and the little pieces of mochi on top are a nice addition. Just a warning, the ice cream takes awhile to make, so the line can get long. Honestly, it's not worth a ridiculous wait time, so if the line is super long, try another time or day!

And of course, there are a million boba tea shops with matcha, but I don't feel like they are of the highest quality. At least in my experience, they've all left a bad aftertaste in my mouth. But if you know of any quality places, let me know!

Matcha Protein Pancakes with Vital Proteins

I've partnered with Vital Proteins to create a matcha protein pancake recipe! A lot of you may be familiar with whey protein already, but what is collagen peptide? According to Vital Proteins, "collagen peptides supply amino acids that are needed to build new collagen." It supports healthy nails, hair, skin, and helps maintain and restore the protein content of muscle. You can read more about it here!

As for the recipe, I used their Vanilla & Coconut Water Collagen Peptide and Unflavored Organic Whey Protein. Here is the ingredient list and easy step-by-step recipe:

Yields ten 4-inch pancakes

Pancake Batter:
3 eggs
1 cup almond milk
6 tbsp coconut flour
1 tbsp coconut oil
1 scoop collagen peptides
2 scoops whey protein
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
Pinch of sea salt
1 tbsp matcha powder

2% fat Greek yogurt

1. Whisk eggs until smooth.
2. In a separate bowl, mix matcha powder, coconut flour, peptides, protein, baking powder, baking soda, sea salt.
3. Stir in eggs and almond milk until smooth. 
4. Heat skillet to medium and coat with coconut oil.
5. Drop spoonfuls of batter (I made 4" pancakes) and flip after 1 minute (or until underside is lightly browned).
6. Top with Greek yogurt, granola, raspberries, and drizzle with honey.



I've been a little obsessed with matcha lately. If a coffee shop has it, it's my go-to for caffeine.

If you're not familiar with matcha, it's a specially grown green tea, ground to a fine powder. You get about the same amount of caffeine as brewed coffee without the jitteriness! It's actually very calming, and I love drinking it on weekend mornings. Other health benefits are that it's rich in antioxidants, vitamins, fiber, and it boosts metabolism.

I was so excited when PANATEA sent me their ceremonial grade matcha starter set, which contains:

  • Ceremonial Grade Matcha Green Tea Tin (30g = 30 Servings)
  • Custom Measuring Scoop (1g)
  • Double Wall Glass Bowl
  • Bamboo Whisk
  • Directional Pamphlet

It was my first time ever making matcha, but there are only a few steps to it! The hardest part is whisking.

First, put in 1 scoop of the matcha powder.

Press down on the powder a few times with the whisk to break it apart.

For hot matcha, use water that has been cooled off from a boil. Pour until you reach the 3 oz. line on the bowl.

Eek, I messed up. Read below.

Eek, I messed up. Read below.

As for the whisking part, I messed up 3 times... When you whisk in a zig-zag motion, make sure you do it in a QUICK motion (not a calculated, methodical one) and with the whisk near the top of the mixture. Don't let the whisk touch the bottom of the bowl! If you do, you get the above photo... watery and no froth.

Done correctly (or as close to correctly as I could), I got the froth!



I'm already excited to make iced matcha, matcha lattes with steamed milk, or even incorporate matcha into my cooking with my sample packet of culinary grade powder!
