Fraisecha: Strawberry and Matcha verrines

The taste of green tea powder (or Matcha) is one of my favorite. It can be used with many thing, ^^ and this time it comes with strawberry.

Fraisecha: Strawberry and Matcha verrines
Actually I start thinking about it when my sister reminded me that I didn't make any green tea sweet lately (and it's my niece's favorite too). So, she told me to create something creamy  for my niece and herself to enjoy ^^.
Well it's will be less interesting to use only the green tea, I love to play it around. And my choice is strawberry, I use them together many time and happy with the result. The sweet, slightly sour and fragrance strawberry will be the main follow by the green tea that will linger in your mouth with the creamy Vanilla crème chantilly. This dessert is very easy to make, but this time it's very hard for me to take the photo ^^", because my niece try to put her finger in the glass and crying that "I want to taste it!!!". Finally I gave up and handed her a glass and a spoon. I didn't have the photo that I want but I got a lovely smile form my niece and it's one of the best thing for me, haha.

You can use Gelatin powder, but mix it with water before mixing it with other ingredients. And You can make strawberry puree by blend it in the blender.
