As we’re wrapping up our New Year’s Conscious Cleanse I know I’m not the only one looking forward to reintroducing a beloved, caffeinated beverage into my morning routine.
I love coffee, probably just as much as the next person, but I’ve realized over the years that drinking coffee everyday does not love me back.
As part of my 80:20 I’ve found a new love – one that tastes delicious as it delivers many promising health benefits.
Matcha is a fine stone-ground green tea powder that has its own unique flavor unlike any other tea, plus it has a texture like that of a frothy espresso drink.
Jo and I both love matcha for its incredible nutritional value and antioxidant content – plus it makes a delicious latte with your favorite nut milk of choice.
I personally prefer this Matcha Green Tea Latte with Homemade Almond Milk (recipe in our book) but in a pinch the store-bought stuff works too.
Known for fighting against viruses and bacteria, lowering cholesterol and boosting metabolism, this superfood is one worth trying!
Try it for yourself and leave me a comment below.
With love and matcha green grins,
Matcha Green Tea Latte
