I have been thinking about making a switch from coffee to matcha for a while- at least in the afternoon. It all started with reading multiple articles about how differently our bodies process caffeine from coffee and how beneficial drinking matcha can be. I have to agree that one cup of matcha provides a less jittery, more sustained energy boost- with no crash at the end and it's so easy to make. It also has much higher levels of antioxidants and it boosts our metabolism.
With that said I have been searching for a perfect recipe. After trying a hand full I settled with this Honey Coconut Matcha Latte. I still don't own a fancy bamboo whisk and a bowl so I am very grateful for my blender.
- 1/2cup boiling water
- 1 1/2 cups almond milk
- 1/2 teaspoon matcha
- 2 tablespoons coconut oil
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1-2 teaspoons honey to taste
WHAT TO DO:
1. Heat the almond milk on the stove top until steaming.
2. Add all the ingredients to a blender and blend on high until well combined and frothy. Serve.
This Honey Coconut Matcha Latte uses coconut oil to slow down the absorption of caffeine and create a steady energy without any jitters. A quick and easy 5 minute recipe with five ingredients and two steps. Enjoy!
