Place the coconut into a Vitamix. Take a microplane grater and grate the ginger. Add the ginger, salt, maple syrup, vinegar, mint extract, matcha powder, and spinach to the coconut and blend until creamy smooth. Turn the Vitamix on low and slowly pour in the coconut oil and the coconut butter. Mix in evenly using your tamper. Add in the lecithin; evenly mix it in without over blending it. Place the frosting into an air tight container in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours.

Here at A Taste for Tea we are a bunch a fun-loving tea drinkers, particularly matcha. We love matcha not only as a Japanese traditional and very auspicious drink, but for its wonderful health-giving properties. Loaded with anti-oxidants, catechins, chlorophyll and vitamin C, it's an enjoyable way to gain health and enjoy the l-theanine sense of sustained calm energy. Our goal is to share the tea and the experience for those learning all about matcha.
