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.
