You’ve probably noticed matcha desserts are having a moment right now, but these matcha recipes are more than a trend.

They’re so tasty, you’ll crave them again and again. 

Did I also mention matcha is a superfood? So go ahead and give in to your sweet cravings because these match desserts pack a healthy-ish punch. 

1. Matcha Fudge

If you’ve ever made fudge before, you know it’s not the easiest dessert to make.

Luckily, these white chocolate fudge squares can easily be whipped up in a baking pan.

The matcha adds a bitterness that is a terrific match for the sweetness of the chocolate.

It also adds a vibrant green color I think would be perfect for a St. Paddy’s Day dessert.

2. Matcha Marble Pound Cake

Matcha and pound cake make an astonishing duo. 

This recipe nixes the cocoa for matcha to make the mesmerizing marble swirls.

Speaking of swirls, mix this in the bowl instead of the pan to create the ideal pattern.

The result is a buttery and sweet cake with complimentary earthy notes that will be stellar at your next tea party.

3. Matcha Green Tea Mug Cake

I’m all about this matcha mug cake! It’s way easier to make than a layered cake and is full of matcha flavor.

Simply toss your cake batter into a microwave-safe mug and let the microwave do its thing.

You’ll have your single-serving dessert ready in no time.

4. Matcha Cheesecake Brownies

Give avocados a break and try this green superfood in your brownies instead. 

Way better than a box, these brownies are rich and luscious with a whirl of sensational flavors. 

The cream cheese filling and matcha powder lend a balance of creamy and earthy flavors that make these brownies the ideal amount of sweetness. 

5. No-Bake Vegan Matcha Cheesecake

These vegan cheesecakes will have you coming back for another bite. 

They feature three luxurious layers of creamy matcha cheesecake, vanilla cheesecake, and an Oreo crust. Plus, there’s no baking required!

To make these even creamier, add a dollop of whipped cream.

6. Matcha Green Tea Cupcakes

How adorable are these cupcakes? They have a super fluffy texture with a hint of matcha flavor and slightly sweet whipped cream frosting. 

Sprinkle some matcha on top to let this ingredient shine. 

7. Matcha Green Tea Ice Cream

Green tea ice cream is popular in Japan for a reason, it’s incredible. 

The earthiness of the matcha and sweetness of the ice cream balances out for a refreshing treat. 

The key to this recipe is to make a paste with the matcha before adding it to the other ingredients. This ensures it will dissolve well. 

8. Matcha Truffles

A box of these truffles will make anybody’s heart melt. Each melt-in-your-mouth square is an explosion of complexity that’s rich, fruity, earthy, and sweet. 

Inside the truffles is a tantalizing white chocolate and matcha ganache.

Meanwhile, the outside features an elegant dusting of matcha powder and dried raspberries. 

9. Brown Butter White Chocolate Matcha Cookies

This recipe takes chocolate chip cookies to a whole other level. 

It combines brown butter, white chocolate chips, and matcha powder to make a dangerously irresistible dessert. 

A batch of these soft, chewy cookies will turn your friends into little cookie monsters. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

10. Matcha Sugar Cookies

Here’s another delightful cookie to add to your fall cookie arsenal.

To achieve the ideal texture, cream your matcha with butter rather than dumping it in. 

You’ll also have to let the dough chill for about an hour. But it’s well worth the wait. 

11. Matcha Whoopie Pies

I’ll bet you’ve never had a whoopie pie quite like this! 

Matcha and mascarpone come together to make a delicious cream filling that’s sandwiched between two chocolate cakes. 

12. Matcha Panna Cotta 

I adore panna cotta for its clean simplicity.

It’s rich and creamy, and usually only one flavor. And that means that one flavor can really shine.

If you’ve never tried matcha before, this is the recipe to make first. It’s super delicate and just the right amount of sweet.

13. Matcha Butter Cake

This butter cake would be another wonderful springtime treat. 

It takes all the flavors you love about butter cakes and spruces it up with ripe berries and matcha tea. 

And don’t worry, it’s not as hard to make as it looks!

14. Matcha Baked Doughnuts

Matcha gives these doughnuts a unique decorative touch. 

You can make your dozen look just like these using three different matcha toppings recipes. 

These include matcha glaze, matcha powder sugar, and matcha cane sugar toppings.

15. Matcha Mini-Cheesecakes

This is one of those treats that’s so elegant it deserves its own little dessert box to match. 

To make these you’ll layer matcha cheesecake batter on top of an Oreo cookie crust and chill. 

Once they’ve set, top these decadent desserts with a white chocolate-covered strawberry and drizzle of chocolate ganache. 

16. Easy Matcha Biscotti

These matcha biscotti are the perfect dippers for a cup of coffee or tea. 

Each crunchy biscotti is dipped in a slightly sweet matcha glaze. 

Make these for a fun afternoon dessert with friends or lounging around on the porch.

17. Matcha Macarons With Mango Buttercream

Matcha macarons are a cheerful pick-me-up that is also gluten-free.

For the cookies, you’ll need almond flour, sugar, eggs, and powdered matcha.

Then for the buttercream, you’ll use dried mangoes, vanilla, butter, heavy cream, and some more sugar. 

While they do require some patience, they’re well worth the effort. 

18. Green Tea Madeleines

Green tea lovers will adore these madeleines. The clam-shaped sponge cakes let the matcha shine without being overbearing. 

Like macarons, this French cookie will take a little bit of work. But once you bite into these soft, sweet cookies you won’t have a care in the world. 

19. Matcha Cream Cheese Pound Cake

In the mood for a cake without the sweet sugar frosting? Grab your mixing bowl and bake up this 10 ingredient pound cake. 

Matcha and cream cheese give this tender cake an upgrade that is sure to delight all-butter cake fans.

20. Matcha Mochi Cake

This popular Hawaiian dessert is savory, sweet, and just waiting for matcha. 

The filling combines matcha with coconut milk and sweet rice flour to create a chewy filling. 

That gets topped with a crispy coconut layer turning this into a sensational tropical treat.
