Matcha Glazed Donuts

In a perfect world (where calories and sugar crashing do not exist) I would start each morning with a strong matcha latte and a perfectly glazed donut. I would wake with the rise of the sun to the sound of birds chirping outside my window and would feel delightfully refreshed. My skin would be dewey. My hair would be coyly disheveled in the early-200's-Olsen-twins way. My bed would magically make itself and I would shower while listening to no less than 5 NPR podcasts. Perhaps I would also read the newspaper in a foreign language. Who fucking knows.

The point here is that the world is not perfect. I practically sumo-wrestle my iPhone alarm each morning (grunting included) and have such aggressive morning hair that my friends say it looks like I've just exited a week lost in the woods. Usually my showers are missing one key item: soap, shampoo, a razor, maybe all three, and I can't find my bra. But you know what I can do? I can eat matcha donuts for breakfast. I can make matcha donuts. And when I make matcha donuts, it allows me to imagine- if only just for a moment- that perhaps I am the girl in the shower who shaves her legs with rigid routine and knows how to read in a foreign language. Maybe.

TO MAKE

  • One fresh batch of your favorite donuts. This recipe would be great if you removed the sugars on the outside. YUM. 
  • 1 cup of your favorite Greek Yogurt. I prefer using plain yogurt for this.
  • 1 TBSP matcha of your choice. I have been using this one. 
  • Optional: cinnamon,  your favorite adaptogen powders, coconut sugar.
  • Mix your matcha, Greek Yogurt, and any extra goodies in a bowl until all matcha clumps are broken up.
  • With a knife, spread your matcha "glaze" atop your center-less wonder (umm, donut). 
  • Eat. Feel proud that you found a sneaky way to eat donuts, probiotics (yogurt!), and your morning matcha all in one. You are truly amazing.
