Strawberry season is finally here! At Teaspoons & Co., we absolutely love adding strawberries to everything. Instead of using artificial strawberry syrup, why not make it yourself? It's simple and delicious.
Make sure you are using the right kind of matcha! There are various grades and quality out there. To read more on the different grades. Click here! For this recipe we are using Teaspoons & Co. Uji Matcha Powder.
Inspired by the Boba Guys. Here is a recipe on how to replicate their drink!
This fresh strawberry sauce is a great substitute for your regular simple syrup. Why not add more depth and fruity flavors to your iced tea and milk shakes?!
*Unused strawberry puree can be stored in the fridge for 2 weeks.
2 TBSP SUGAR
1.5 CUP OF FRESH STRAWBERRIES
Blend the strawberries "pulse" mode. Do not over blend it! Ideally, you want smaller strawberry chunks in the drink. You can also cut it up into smaller pieces if you do not have a blender.
In a bowl, mix together the blended strawberries and sugar. Let it sit for at least 15 minutes. The sugar will naturally draw out some moisture from the strawberries.
