Matcha tea latte is one of my favorite elixirs to drink. Especially as the weather moves into the colder months.
Matcha is so rich in so many nutrients. It's high in antioxidants, helps with the health of the liver, its said to have powerful anti-cancer properties, and can help stabilize weight. But make sure you are only using ORGANIC Matcha. Because the whole leaf is used, you want to make sure that it has not been sprayed with a bunch of harmful chemicals.
The first time I had matcha, I cannot say I was the biggest fan. It had a very strong taste. After trying many different recipes, I finally found one that I fell in love with by Amanda Cook. With a few adaptions, I have made this is drink into a super foods treat for me.
Try it out...add stuff...take stuff out..make it the drink you crave.
1 tsp of matcha tea powder
1 tsp of vanilla extract
1 tsp of Maca powder (only add this from menstruation to ovulation, do not use if pregnant or chance of pregnancy)
1 tbs of collagen powder (I like Vital Proteins)
1 tbs of Maple syrup (or you can use dates if you prefer)
1 tbs of sunflower seed butter
2 cups of hot water
Optional: mushroom powder
Put it all in a blender and mix it up well. Pour into your glass and enjoy!
Original recipe was by Amanda Cook, however I have add a few things into it to make a really super food drink for me.
