Happy Wednesday everyone! It’s that time of the month again where I head over to my friend Ashley’s blog, Spoonful of Flavor, and share something tasty not only with you, but with her readers as well. Since St. Patrick’s Day is nearing and you are all excited about four leaf clovers, rainbows with pots of gold at the end, corned beef, beer, potatoes, and all things green, I thought I better share a recipe to add to the excitement! So here you have it, Pistachio Green Tea Cupcakes with Matcha Cream Cheese Frosting!
These cupcakes are a healthier replica of the ones my mom used to make my sister and I every St. Patrick’s Day. Those cupcakes used boxed pistachio pudding mix, and I’m not gonna lie, I love the stuff. However, I knew there had to be a better alternative, hence, green tea powder or matcha. Not only does the green tea turn the cupcakes a natural lovely shade of green, but it also adds a delicious green tea flavor. Pair it with chopped pistachios, vanilla and almond extract, and you have one tasty cupcake! Don’t even get me started on the matcha cream cheese frosting, I ate so much I nearly made myself sick! If you are looking for the perfect dessert to make for St. Patrick’s Day then head on over to Spoonful of Flavor and grab the recipe for these Pistachio Green Tea Cupcakes with Matcha Cream Cheese Frosting!
