Coconut Matcha Latte



Matcha is high in antioxidants such as EGCG, a catechin compound. Consumed in moderation, matcha has many health benefits. Just beware the high caffeine content.

Ingredients:


  • 1 cup unsweetened organic coconut almond milk

  • 1 tbsp organic coconut cream [or the coconut solids from the top of a can of coconut milk]

  • ½ tsp organic matcha powder

  • 2 drops organic liquid stevia, optional


Instructions:


  1. Warm the coconut almond milk and the coconut cream in a small saucepan or microwave for 1 minute.

  2. Use a French whisk [one of my favorite kitchen tools!] to blend.

  3. Add the matcha powder and whisk until well combined and frothy. I recommend tasting it at this point to see if you desire the stevia. [I typically don’t add sweetener.] If stevia is added, whisk again.


Enjoy!


Makes 1 serving of a delightful pick me up treat.


Note: I recommend having this no later than noon due to the caffeine content of matcha and the half life of caffeine.
