SkinFood Sunday - Green Tea

SkinFood Sunday – Green Tea

SkinFood Sunday - Green TeaWelcome back to Skin Food Sunday! This week we are talking all things Green tea. It is my absolute favorite; I drink it almost every day. It has huge healing benefits for the body such as helping with digestion and inflammation. When it comes to skin health, green tea has been found to delay the signs of ageing and protect the skin from harmful UV rays. Read on for more green tea skin benefits.


 1. Anti-ageing:
Green tea is full of antioxidants. Antioxidants protect our skin cells from damage such as fine lines, wrinkles, sunspots and sagging skin.


2. Anti-inflammation:
The anti-bacterial agents in green tea help to fight acne causing bacteria and they help to regulate hormonal imbalances. This results in less irritation and redness within the skin.


3. Improves skin complexion:
Green tea helps to flush toxins out of the skin, healing breakouts and increasing the skins elasticity.

Green Tea Muffins:

I love green tea, but I only drink it. I’ve never made a recipe with it before, so I had to think really hard what to do with it. If you don’t like the taste of green tea, you’re gonna love this one. It doesn’t have the distinct flavor of green tea, but it contains all the benefits.

Serving: 8 muffins

  • 250 ml Green tea (Clipper Chai Green Tea)
  • 2 Flax eggs
  • 200 gr Flour
  • 1,5 tsp Baking powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 tbsp Maple syrup
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract

 

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 175 degrees Celsius.
  2. Boil some water, pour in a cup, put in the tea bag and let it brew for 5 minutes.
  3. Make the flax eggs: put 2 tbsp flaxseeds in a bowl with 5-6 tbsp water and let it sit.
  4. Mix flour, baking powder and salt in a big bowl.
  5. Make sure the tea is cooled off a bit. Add the maple syrup to the cup of tea and stir until it is dissolved.

    To be honest I’m not a big fan of the green tea taste, but I’ve tried it in cooking before. Those muffins sound so original – never heard of green tea muffins before. The only I’ve tried with green tea flavour has been ice cream

      I had to ‘learn’ to drink it as well. Now I do love it. Try the muffins, they don’t really have the flavor of green tea! 🙂 oehh I’m really curious about the green tea ice cream! Maybe I should try that haha.
