Going green may be the trendiest way to take care of our planet, but it’s definitely not the easiest goal to pursue when it comes to the actual color of the food that we stuff into our faces. And let’s face it — sweets shops and ice cream parlors are some of the last places we go looking for our green food fix. Floridians are about to have their minds blown though because this Japanese sweets cafe in Florida serves matcha everything and it's making us crave some sweet, green treats from a hidden corner in one of the city’s most famous ice cream spots.
Floridians may know Dasher And Crank for being voted as “Miami’s Best Ice Cream” by the Miami New Times; however, the big secret beneath the store’s fame is Yoko Matcha — a pop-up located within the restaurant’s walls. The wildest part of the situation is that it is the very first specialty matcha café in the city.
Yes, you read that right. You can dig into some of the most delicious Japanese desserts and take advantage of all of the green tea's health benefits at the same time.
Yoko Matcha is famous for fusing Japanese and Floridian cuisines to create some truly mind-blowing flavors, like the Matcha Praline Latte, the Matcha Pastelito, and the Matcha Lavender Latte.
Grab your bestie, your bae or your whole crew, and get ready to dig in — because you + tea = a match-a made in heaven!
The wildest part of all this is, according to Yoko Matcha’s website, their treats are actually good for you.
The health benefits their bites can offer you could include a boost of antioxidants and to your metabolism; not to mention many of the treats are vegan-friendly.
