Today everyone's into lattes. Coffee lattes, golden lattes, mushroom lattes, and matcha lattes.
They all stake their claim to having a host of health benefits to go along with their colorful hue.
I would have to say that most of them probably do too! But, not if it's from Starbucks or another chain restaurant. Most of those lattes are filled with refined sugars and syrups, fake flavorings, fattening creams, and chemically treated water.
A matcha latte from one of those restaurants will have at least 32g of sugar, 200+ calories, and 7g of fat in a 16 oz cup size.
None of that sounds healthy. What would be the point then? I guess you could say it tastes good in an artificial flavoring kind of way, maybe?
What if I told you that you could have a matcha latte that tastes great, and is excellent for your body and your wallet?
The real focus behind this recipe is to offer a healthier alternative to you're morning sugar buzz. Instead, you will get a healthy, energizing, nutrient-dense, and antioxidant high every morning.
You can whip it up in under 5 minutes flat.
Better Than Starbucks Matcha Latte
✔ 1 heaping tsp of Natures Blueprint organic matcha
✔ 2 tbsp of raw honey (orange blossom if you can find it)
✔ 1/4 c. of hot water (spring or filtered)
✔ 1 c. of warm, homemade, almond milk (you can substitute with other nut milk)
✔ 1 splash of vanilla extract
Place Nature's Blueprint Matcha Green Tea Powder into your favorite 16oz cup.
Pour in hot water and whisk/froth, until powder is dissolved.
Next, add in the honey and whisk/froth again until incorporated.
Last, slowly add your nut milk, and whisk or blend with frother one for the last time.
You can also skip the whisking/frothing and throw everything into your Nutribullet blender.
