Matcha Banana Donuts With Matcha Lemon Glaze

Today is the first day of the fourth year of my blogging journey and I cannot thank each of y’all enough for stopping by to read and/or comment. I have learned so much in these past 3 years from all of y’all. From tips on taking better food photo’s, to miscellaneous facts that would make me show off at trivia night, to the joys of owning a Smartphone powered by Walmart Family Mobile’s PLUS Plan!

But, by far, the most important lesson I have learned is that y’all, my fellow foodies, can connect so meaningfully over the miles, without ever knowing or seeing each other. And that my friends, has made this blogging journey such a beautiful one.

Matcha Banana Donuts With Matcha Lemon Glaze

So, today, in addition to the whole blogiversary dealio, my daughter and I figured we would celebrate another milestone. This past week she got her report card, which, in this household means the end of her junior year and the beginning of her senior year of high school.

Of course, she is excited, but to me, this is bittersweet as next summer is probably going to be filled with college orientations and dorm-buddies and the like. Which would make this summer our last “normal” summer. So, (to help me more than her deal with what’s on the horizon) we have vowed to celebrate this summer with gusto and revisiting some of our old favorites! We have also made it a point to be really present with each other and make every opportunity to hang out a deliberate one.

Matcha Banana Donuts With Matcha Lemon Glaze

So, this past weekend when our first movie night of the summer came around, I entertained her request for donuts for our movie-night snack by making these Matcha Banana Donuts With Matcha Lemon Glaze. If you happen to think Macha is overwhelming, mixing it with banana (in the donuts) and with lemon (in the glaze), seemed to tone it down, IMO. These Matcha Banana Donuts With Matcha Lemon Glaze might be a treat, but they also happen to be gluten-free!

As I iced these donuts, my daughter looked through the movie choices on my phone, showing me movie trailers of the ones she liked.

Thanks to the Walmart Family Mobile PLUS Plan (which includes Unlimited Talk, Text, & Data with up to 10GB of 4G LTE), I did not have a conniption over her going over my data limit as she used my Samsung Galaxy S5 to watch movie trailers and read reviews online as she tried to whittle down the movie choices for our movie night. And, that’s not all – with the $49.88 Walmart Family Mobile PLUS Plan I also get a FREE movie on VUDU every month (a $7 value) per line!

By the way, the Walmart Family Mobile PLUS Plan starter kit will be on rollback for $19.88 (from $25) – and since Family Mobile bills you later, you only have to pay $19.88 when you sign up! Talk about a deal – huh?!

After much deliberation, my daughter picked “Now You See Me” (an old favorite of ours) to stream on our Smart TV. We turned off all the lights (much like we used to do when she was a youngster) and pulled out all the blankets and turned the AC way up (it is summer here in Georgia and evenings don’t normally call for blankets), and hunkered down with these Matcha Banana Donuts With Matcha Lemon Glaze and some cold milk.

Your blog and recipes are so unique and I can’t wait to see what the 4th year of blogging brings you (and me and my belly). 😉 And huge congrats to your daughter- I hope senior year brings her much happiness… but first you two need to enjoy the summer together! And hopefully that involves tons of the donuts! These look amazing, girlfriend! The color is fabulous and I love matcha, but never thought of pairing it with bananas and putting it in donuts!! GENIUS! I could eat a few dozen of these right now! Cheers, friend!

  20. Happy Anniversary! It has been long time since I had a matcha donut…these look fab. with tee glaze.

  21. Oh, you’ve gone and done it again, Shashi! I’ll be thinking about these matcha donuts for the rest of the day now. Oh! What about your beet doughnuts with a matcha lemon glaze? They’d be perfect for Christmas! And I love the idea of turning the temperature down and curling up with a movie and a blanket. Of course, it’s been downright cold up here this weekend, so we haven’t even needed the AC. Oh, and where is lil Shashi thinking about for college? There’s some pretty good ones near Saratoga Springs. Just sayin’. 🙂 (That way, I could ensure that you’d be up to visit a lot…with treats…mwahahaha!)

  22. congratulations dear!! 4th year should include dessserts and im glad it was in the form of matcha with donut. i cant believe shes really really graduating highschool.

  23. Happy blog anniversary!This sounds a delicious way to use matcha tea in recipes.
