Have you ever had a green tea latte? If not, get ready for your life to change. Over the last few months I’ve been trying to lower my caffeine intake by incorporating more natural ways to stay energized. Matcha is a great alternative to coffee because it is rich in antioxidants and gives you the energy you need without crashing. Stemmed from nutrient-rich Japanese tea leaves, sources say that matcha is one of the most powerful super foods in the market today.
Matcha Green Tea Latte
- 2 Tbsp. Organic Matcha Powder
- Soy Milk - Other alternatives are Water Almond or Dairy Milk
- 1 Tsp. Stevia Sweetner [Optional - I prefer mine plain]
You should know that matcha can be difficult to mix. Some people use a bamboo whisk, also known as a chasen, to break up the powder but I've found that a covered mason jar or a blender are both great alternatives, especially if you're in a hurry. I always pour my liquid in before the matcha which helps blend things together as well. If you opt for using a covered mason jar, I usually shake it up for around 30 seconds or until it turns a nice green color. Drink hot or iced and enjoy!
