Miss Matcha Has Met Her Match

If you’ve ever been set up on a blind date before, you know just how traumatizing they can be!

Sometimes a little help is necessary!

Plenty of Fish in the Sea

Kiss Me OrganicsMatcha Green Tea Powder has been struggling for years to find “her” true food soul mate, a companion that compliments her perfectly.

Now she could have created a profile on Match.com, eHarmony, Plenty of Fish or downloaded the app Tinder….. But nope, instead… She came to me, the Matcha Match Maker!

Matcha Green Tea Powder and GiGi Dubois

If you blend Chris Harrison, Patti Stanger and Giada de Laurentiis together (smoothie style) you’ll get me, the Matcha Match Maker. My job is to weed out the duds from the studs for Miss Matcha! I have narrowed down many qualified food bachelors to four extremely suitable contenders for the scrumptious Green Goddess.

Matcha Green Tea Powder

Curious about Matcha’s Studly Gentlemen Callers? Well then, meet the eligible bachelors:

Paul Pumpkin: 

While Paul might have a hard and tough-looking exterior, when he warms up, he is extremely mushy.

Libby's Pumpkin

Chris Coconut Oil:

Chris has been plagued as a bad boy for quite some time but this is only because he was committed for a crime he did not perpetuate. He is in fact a lover and will cherish the love of his life’s heart, forever.

Coconut Oil

Peter Protein Powder:

Peter is the life of the party and always knows how to pump up anyone’s mood when they’re feeling down and out.

Sun Warrior Warrior Blend

Steven Stevia:

The sweetest of the bunch, Steven has no problem showing his sensitive side. He will most likely shower Miss Matcha with sweet-nothings on the regular if matched up together.

Better Stevia and GiGi

So who does Miss Matcha choose? Well, you’ll just have to watch and see!

    I’ve met some women on line. It was a good experience :-)

    I sincerely hope it’s not the norm, but then I wish Twitter wasn’t the norm also!

    Never tried it :-(

    I’mm only a fan of those who try out for The Bachelor and can put their fist in their mouth…

    Better than their foot, which is what I often do!

    • HE HE! I am glad I can make you laugh Dr. J! :)

      Ahhhh another chapter to your long long long EPIC NOVEL… Online dating, yes????

      And BAH HA! I need to make another appearance on the Bachelor, yes? Maybe this fall, unless of course, I find my soul mate between now and September!

  5. Ohhh, love MATCHA! I just did a smoothie post with it > http://focusedtobefit.com/2014/05/15/vanilla-matcha-energy-smoothie/ > but more recently, have been loving it in the morning mix with 2 oz. water and just doing it as a shot. TOTAL Bachelor/Bachelorette fan! :)
    Lauren @ Focused To Be Fit recently posted..Weekend.My Profile

    • YUM!!! Going to check out your smoothie recipe right now! :) But hmmmmm the shot sounds like a very easy way to get it down to get the UMPH you’re looking for!

  6. I use green matcha in my smoothies that have fruit,chia seed and yogurt in them.

  7. You are the perfect matcha maker! I have never tried it but it seems really good. I don’t watch the bachelor/bachelorette until the last few weeks when it gets super juicy :)

    • Why thank you Nellie :)
      And I agree, I tend to just watch the 1st episode of the Bach/Bachelorette and then the final few weeks! ;)

  8. I’ve tried a matcha green tea latte and matcha green smoothies and love them! I need to try making my own recipes since I love matcha!

    I’ve never tried online dating before but I know people that have gotten married after meeting online!
    Polly @ Tasty Food Project recently posted..Coconut Shrimp Curry and Quinoa Sweet Potato BoatsMy Profile

  9. I had matcha fro yo once and it was amazing!
    No online dating; I was already married once that scene got up and running. Though I did have a blind date once and it was bad. Really bad. So awkward.
    Anyway, I do think online dating is the norm now. People used to be embarrassed about meeting someone online but that seems ridiculous now.
    TriGirl recently posted..The Heroes Half: Could there BE any more wind??My Profile

    • I saw Matcha Fro-Yo the other day….. Hmmmmmm!

      OK I really want to know more about this blind date… Cuz I could not agree more – SO AWKWARD!

      • 26 year old summer boss set me up with a guy none of her friends wanted to date. He was nice on the phone, then asked me out. I asked if he knew I was only 18. He said he didn’t but it was fine. As soon as he came to my door to pick me up I knew it was not going to be. Just the whole chemistry thing. We walked around downtown, ran into someone I knew and chatted with her for a bit. He made some excuse for why we had to leave and then said something to me about how he could *feel the vibes* that I didn’t want to talk to the girl anymore. Not even a little true! We then picked up a movie (Serafina–soooo not a date movie.) We watched it at my parents’ house and I developed a crazy cough while we sat on opposite sides of the couch.

        I don’t think we ever spoke again. Yeah, it was magical.
        TriGirl recently posted..The Heroes Half: Could there BE any more wind??My Profile

  10. Gotta try this stuff!

    One very very bad blind date for me when I was stil in my late teens. NEVER again, thank GOODNESS!

    I have had some friends who have met their MATCHES online though.
    Elle recently posted..More NEW… and Friday Faves and RavesMy Profile

    • Ah ha! You learned early on that blind dates – SUCKK! lol! And my sister met her husband on line! so I know it can work!

  11. Loved the matcha-making! I have yet to try it, where have I been? Will have to give it a shot soon.

    I got hitched before the online thing, but in my twenties I put out a “personals” ad, and some of the self-selected “matches” were pretty hilarious. On the plus side, I found a totally inappropriate person to hook up with and lent a stupid-big sum of money to her and learned some valuable life lessons in record time, so it was efficient!
    crabby mcslacker recently posted..Three Annoying Questions for… Roni Noone!My Profile

    • You have been in AFRICA – that’s where! LOL!!!

      And ugh, I feel like everything happens for a reason. So the experience with that woman only taught you lessons. I have certainly had MANY experiences like that too, not necessarily with people, but with experiences in life in general!

      I have NEVER done personal ads…. Hmmmm perhaps I should look into that, AH ha! I should post myself on CRAIGSLIST!

  12. I like my men big and strong, not small and mushy so I’m going with Peter Protein!
    I haven’t tried the online dating thing but I think it’s a fabulous way for people to meet. You can weed out all the ones you aren’t interested in before you even go to dinner – perfect!
    I used to watch the Bachelor when it first started. Now I can’t stand it, lol.
    I do love your videos though, GiGi, and you always brighten my day! Hugs!
    Robyn @ simply fresh dinners recently posted..Tuesday’s TidbitsMy Profile

    • Peter Protein is quite the stud-muffin if you ask me! In fact, you can make him INTO A MUFFIN! ;)

      And I agree with you, it’s definitely a great way to weed out the DUDS for sure!!! I remember when my sister was doing it, it was actually a lot of fun, LOL!!!

      THANK YOU for watching my videos Robyn, means the world to me :)

  13. I’m so bummed I forgot to set the DVR to record the Bachelorette last night!!
    My sister and her husband actually met through an online dating service.
    Kim recently posted..The Truth about BloggingMy Profile

    • ARE WE TWINS?!?!?!? I too forgot to DVR the Bachelorette last night, and the first episode is my FAVORITE because I love to JUDGE all the dudes, lol… And… MY SISTER TOO met her husband on an online dating service!!! No wonder why I feel like I can relate to ALL of your blog posts!

  14. I literally can’t stand the bachelor/bachelorette anymore BUT my husband can’t keep himself away from it! It drives me insane and he finds it entertaining every single season and can’t miss an episode!

    • Ah ha ha ha ha! Now THAT is too funny!!!!!!!!!!! I love when I find out guys/husbands/boyfriends love dating shows like the Bachelor more than their wives/girlfriends/etc! LOL!!!

  15. Green Tea Powder WEIRDS me out. I’ll stick to a regular cup of tea with a tea bag. And yes! I’m a loyal bachelor/ette follower! So glad its BACK!
    Jenn @ Skinny Opinion recently posted..Do Something Uncomfortable TodayMy Profile

    • Yeah, it totally weirded me out at first, but it ain’t so bad!! ;) And yes!!!!!!!!! We will need to start a POLL of who we want to win the show this season!

  16. I once went on a blind date in high school. We met up at the bowling alley. And thinking back on it, I would’ve rather hooked up with Miss Matcha.

  19. Who needs Tinder when there’s Gigi? Lol! Obviously Chris is the best candidate! Talk about some delicious offpsring ;)


      Delicious offspring?!?!?! Sounds like Chris and Matcha might eat their children! LMFAO!

  20. You are so fun!!!! I think I would have gone protein powder – no surprise – right?? :) I have not tried it & not a tra fan.. what does it taste like???

    Never watched Bachelor or bachelorette… I see enough of it on the recaps on the news! ;)

    Ok, I love Paul too.
    I’m glad he won.
    So I’ve never done online dating but I did go on a blind date set up by the same people who set up my parents. Yup, you read that right!
    Fate, right?
    Except it didn’t work out! His hair was the color of Paul Pumpkin, but that wasn’t why it didn’t work out.

    • Did you turn your husband good? ;) You must be a magician! ha ha.

      LMFAO!!! I want to know more about this BLIND DATE WITH PAUL PUMPKIN Aha ha ha! Was it around Halloween? Did you go pumpkin picking? LOL!
      GiGi recently posted..Asparagus: Aroused By SpringMy Profile

      • ha!! My husband turned himself good, luckily. After two years!
        The pumpkin picking comment made my morning. Actually, the blind date was wonderful. We dated for nine months! Nine pumpkin-filled months! I should have said the relationship didn’t work out and that was because I discovered Chris Coconut. Or rather, Chris Coconut came back into my life.
        I thought about having them together but..nah. I think that’s illegal in this country.
        Tamara recently posted..How You Know Your Youngest Is Nearing Two.My Profile

        • NINE MONTHS! Holy MOLY!! He must have NOT been all that bad! ;)

          And you know what? You can make ANYTHING legal in this country, just as long as you keep it under wraps…….. I DID NOT SAY THAT! LOL!!!!

  24. Green tea powder? I didn’t know that such a thing existed.. I need to find that now. It would be a welcome addition to our smoothies…

    I am quite excited that the new bachelorette season has begun once again. It seems like she has quite a stable of dark haired, strong chinned, confident, clones to choose from :)

I don’t watch the bachelor, I think it’s dumb. The only time I would have watched it was if my homegirl GIGI was on it fisting her mouth! I love matcha, but as you know NOT THE SUGAR LADEN SHIT!

  30. I like the glasses, I had to get new frames today. I wear them when I feel studious :) I’ll have mine with Lana lemonade no wait then there’s Chrissy Cranberry, I’ll just have both ;) I have never watched any of those shows, there are so many dynamics in relationships. The best bet seems to be friends and have respect the rest seems to fall into place. I’m the epitome of eternal bachelor, I will definitely try this and I’ll be watching tomorrow night !!!

  31. Testing 1 2 3 ( I forgot to hit follow below )

  32. I first saw matcha powder on davs blog, and was curious as to how much caffeine you’d be hit with- those powders are apparently lethal!

    I think those dating shows are damn scripted- there is this new one coming out in Australia where they trick girls into dating Prince Harry.

    As for matcha…I bought some matcha latte powder from TJs, and had one tea, was so disgusted that it tasted like grass that i threw it away…..but I am finding out I just did not put it with the right ingredients! I HATE wasting food, so now I am forever mad with myself about that….it was just THAT bad!

Matcha picked what I probably would have gone with – though a threesome with Paul protein powder might have resulted in some wonderful “bites”! ;)

    • In this video, I really just mixed matcha and pumpkin, but what I really wanted to do was make Matcha has a mange toi with protein powder and coconut oil as WELL AS pumpkin! LOL! Bake that up and YUM :) You’re so right, they would make perfect BITES!

  64. I have that same exact powder! I believe I was given the package sometime last year. I’ve made hot drinks, lattes, smoothies, guacamole and muffins with it. Some of those recipes had coconut oil, pumpkin and/or protein powder. So, my answer is D – all of the above! ;) Stopping by from the Lets Get Real party hop.

  65. I have never tried online dating (it didn’t exist before I got married), and I tried a green matcha smoothie once and liked all the frothiness.

  66. Love this idea for a post- you’re so creative!! My vote is for Paul Pumpkin!!! Nom nom nom…

  67. One day I will tell you all of my online dating horror stories. Let’s just say I really really really suck at fishing.

    I’m sticking to matcha-making.

  68. I haven’t tried online dating but a few of my friends have and oh the stories! I actually think apps like Tinder are getting way popular so online dating is way more common in youger people than you would think. Or at least than I would think lol.
    And I think Matcha Green Tea would go well with something mango flavoured. Maybe… I always get green tea ice cream and mango ice cream at suchi restuarants and mix them together so it might work :D

    • Matcha and Mango!!!!!!!! I never ever thought of that combo!!! Try it out and let me know ;)

      And yes, Tinder. Have you ever logged on?????

  69. I met my husband online 20 years ago (I know! I’m GREAT at fishing) but I’m sure I’d choose Paul. :)

  70. I’m loving all the matcha recipes I’ve been seeing lately including my very own :)

    Paul Pumpkin or Peter Protein would get my vote. Indecisive much?

  73. You crack me up girl! I wish I like pumpkin cause i would try this. But I did pair my Matcha up with some brown rice as the lovely Lindsay (The Lean Green Bean) suggested and that was a match made in heaven in my house! ;) I’m off to make a matcha orange cocktail!

    • OH Michelle, I totally have a match.com profile but I never ever ever use it. All those emails go to spam, because, well… Yeah, it’s kind of spammy to me! HA HA!

      AND OOOOO Bulletproof Matcha! I love this idea!! ;)

  75. Haha what a cool post. I joined match.com a year ago. The guy I met on there & I actually broke up last week. Oh well. Haha, now I want a smoothie! I’m stopping by from SITS, I hope your enjoying your holiday weekend.

  80. Hahahha, this was awesome! I tried the whole online dating thing for a very short while right before I met my now wife… not through online dating. My experiences with online dating were… interesting to say the least. Met some very unique characters. Enough said.

  82. I’ve been wanting to try to recreate a Starbucks matcha green tea frap at home- I will have to try this kind of matcha! I think coconut oil would be a great way to smooth out the matcha without adding dairy :)

  83. I need to try this stuff! Oh and I love the glasses/sophisticated look! Had a blast with you at the farmer’s market!! :)
