Almond Milk Matcha-Moringa Iced Latte

Almond Milk Matcha-Moringa Iced Latte

Do you like Matcha? I just love Matcha Lattes, cold or hot. I wanted to post this recipe for a long time. I even bought these beige (very Instagram hip) cups for this to take pictures for Matcha Latte… I know what you are thinking, “that’s totally unnecessary”, but I just couldn’t help myself. Sometimes I get stuff just for those purposes. My shelves are filled with unnecessary props, but again, I can’t help myself. It’s my job and I never know what I will need. 

 

So the other day I went shopping with my girl, Anna, who by the way loves Starbucks double chocolate chip frappe. – Nothing to do with this gem, but I just had to include that sentence for some reason. Anyhow, she suggested Starbucks just to cool off and chill for a moment. I rarely get coffee out; I get it either when I am busy and on the road or if I go out with a friend. I just like making my own coffee at home.

 

I wasn’t craving coffee so naturally, I would get something like matcha frappe or iced latte, which is super easy to make at home, as you can tell. I made a little video with my iPhone how I personally like my Matcha Latte. Since I had this amazingly nutritious Moringa powder I added that as well. I just love it! By the way, this post totally came randomly.

I just finished editing my video which I posted on Youtube. I know… it is shocking! I took a little over a year off from Youtube so this is technically my first video after that long break. Anyhow, I hope you guys like itYou can watch it HERE (my Youtube channel) 

LUNA

Now I am completing this post with two of my fur babies who just love walking accross my laptop keyboard especialy when I type. I don’t know if you know, but we have two kitties. Luna, a year old tabby, and Nala, 4-month-old Chantilly Tiffany. 

I just love them to pieces… all of us loved them but they only listen to me. Well, I feed them and clean their poop after-all hahaha Jokes on the side, I guess I am here all the time so I have the privilege to do all that for my queens. 

NALA

 

So to cut the story short, I hope you guys make this delicious iced latte. It is one my favorites cold or warm, during summer or winter. Just by replacing cold milk you can totally add warm milk and make a nice hot beverage during those cold winter days. 

Hey if you try this recipe or any other recipe from my blog please share with me on Instagram. Make sure to tag me @sandraseasycooking using hashtag #sandrasasycooking I would love to see all your delicious creations and share with my readers as well. Thanks!!! <3

Pineapple and Coconut Sheet Cake

Pineapple and Coconut Sheet Cake

Pineapple and Coconut Sheet Cake with a tasty frosting topped with toasted coconut flakes is a wonderfully rich cake, best if made one day ahead.

Pineapple and Coconut Sheet Cake

If your family is anything like mine, we have to have something sweet after dinner.

I am not a big cake baker. To be honest, I am not even close to being one, but every once in awhile I do make a tasty cake.

Well, I know it does not take a rocket scientist to make a cake, I get that. However, for me was like having two left hands.

It certainly is not the recipe because I would always pick the best-reviewed cake recipe to bake and mine would always come out more like a loaf of bread.

I could make anything with dough, but cake was this whole another dimension to me.

Tap here for more sweet recipes

Anyhow, with a bit of practice and numerous hours watching youtube, I have created my first cake that not only looked like a cake, but it tasted delicious. I was so excited!

Just to mention that cake excitement happen only a couple of years ago so it’s not like I was 15 and made my first cake. Haha!

Well, then I have had another problem. Yes! I could not decorate the cake for shit. I still cannot.

Pineapple and Coconut Sheet Cake

Thankfully, we have these sheet cakes that do not require fancy-schmancy decorating.

I think it looks so much better like this. Looks more homemade, don’t you think?!

This pineapple cake with the addition of coconut is just incredible. I really liked it.

Every recipe that I found to test had a crazy amount of sugar, and some just didn’t make any sense, so I tested and retested until I created a recipe that is mine.

The whole sheet pan was gone over one lazy weekend afternoon when we celebrated my husband’s birthday.

Pineapple and Coconut Sheet Cake

I decided to make this cake simply because he loves pineapple and coconut.

However, he did say if I only had a tub of chocolate with me. Ah! You can’t please them all the time.

Needless to say, all of us loved it so I wanted to finally share with you guys.

Pineapple and Coconut Sheet Cake is delicious, moist and so easy to make a quick dessert.

Ingredients

CAKE

  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 2 eggs, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 20-ounce crushed pineapple with juice
  • 1/4 cup coconut shreds
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

FROSTING

  • 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract

TOPPING

  • 1/2 cup toasted coconut flakes

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Coat all over a 10 x 15-inch baking sheet with butter, or you could use 9 x 13-inch metal baking sheet pan and line either with a sheet of parchment paper.
  3. In a large bowl, with a hand mixer, beat sugar, eggs, oils, and vanilla until well combined and fluffy.
  4. Add pineapple with juice, coconut shreds, flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt; mix until well combined.
  5. Transfer the batter into well-greased baking dish and bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes until the top is golden brown and a toothpick can be inserted in the centre and removed without any batter sticking. Remove the cake once fully baked and let cool.
  6. To make the frosting, in a medium bowl, combine softened cream cheese, butter and confectioners' sugar and vanilla until smooth. Spread over cooled cake and sprinkle with coconut.

Notes

To toast the shredded coconut:

Add 1 cup of coconut flakes into a skillet and toast for about 2 to 3 minutes at medium heat. Be sure to watch it carefully, so it doesn't burn so keep stirring.

I used the baking pan for brownies (12.25 x 8.75 x 1.13) just because I wanted more hight to have when I take the pictures, but sheet pan is just perfect for this recipe.

I posted this recipe last year on Instagram and highlighted it because it is so amazing.

No, it does not taste good, but it is bearable because you have one thing in mind and that is to get better as soon as possible.

As soon as they tell me: “Hey, I feel like I am coming down with something”, I am in my kitchen making it right away just to prevent it from happening.

Homemade Flu Bomb Recipe

Must Try Miracle Combo:

Beets, Green Apples, Carrots, Ginger and Lemon

We were not sick for years, knock on the wood. I only heard of flu, but we never had one so I was not familiar with danger from getting flu to intaking pharmaceutical medicine prescriptions. Tamiflu!

BUT, last year, my youngest one got it. What can you do, right?

Our schools are full of sick kids every single day during flu season, so you cannot really avoid getting influenza, especially if the kids are young.

After all, it shows that in the USA we have about 3 million cases per year.

Homemade Flu Bomb Recipe

Anyhow, with the combination of fever reducers, vitamin C and this drink, I was able to help him heal much faster.

Yes, I tossed Tamiflu after reading all the horror stores. Also, my boy had hallucinations so that medication was not an option.

We swear by this one, though. I waited a long time to post this recipe. I tested on my family and kept improving until it was perfect.

Homemade Flu Bomb Recipe

Make a tea and set aside. Allow it to steep for 3-5 minutes.

Meanwhile, chop or grate the rest of the ingredients and add to the cup or a heat-safe jar.

Homemade Flu Bomb Recipe

Pour hot a tea over it, mix well and let it sit in the hot liquid for 5 minutes.

You may drink it as it is, but I like to use a fine mesh tea strainer and get rid of the leftover pulp.

Drink it twice a day for 2 to 3 days for the best results.
