Fun Food Find #9

Good morning! Hope everyone had a fantastic weekend. Although everyone is surprised to hear this, my husband and I are huge UFC fans.  I know. But it’s true.  Anyway, the UFC came to Chicago this weekend, and we jumped on the opportunity to get tickets. We had such a blast cheering on the fighters; I didn’t want the night to end.

Now that it’s Monday again I have another Fun Food Find for you guys.  This one is thanks again to the never disappointing Trader Joes.  Matcha Almond Beverage. While it needs a catchier name, this is a nice summer drink.

I was very excited to try this, and while I do enjoy it, I’m not thrilled with this.  It definitely is not a must buy.  It can be served both cold and warm for whatever you’re in the mood for.  However, it is just ok.  It wasn’t an overbearing flavor, more of a hint of matcha in almond milk.  I was tempted to pour myself a bowl of cereal using this.

The nutritional information is also not bad at all; again it is very comparable to regular almond milk.  One thing I always find myself telling people is- we don’t care about calories. We care about ingredients. And with a short list of things that are easy to pronounce, I’m on board.

The verdict: 7.5/10

Would I recommend it: Yes

Now when I asked the hubby to try it, he was very skeptical. Any green drink he begrudgingly chokes down when I ask, and this was no different. He had a small sip, paused, and then shrugged his shoulders.  Not much to say about it.

At the end of the day, it’s a fun purchase and worth a shot.
