Creamy Coconut Almond Matcha Latte Recipe Is Like a Smoothie On Steroids

Matcha: this antioxidant powdered form of green tea fires your metabolism while it detoxifies on a cellular level. Matcha is a kind of green tea that offers health benefits. Matcha is loaded with antioxidants and may promote heart health, for example (read about the health benefits of matcha). Enhance your mood with this amazing superfood that may help you focus and stay present. 

This easy matcha beverage powers me up for breakfast, or serves as an energizing snack during the day. This creamy matcha latte is similar to a smoothie recipe, but it's like a smoothie on steroids. Here's what you need in order to make it: coconut milk, almond milk, matcha powder, coconut oil, vanilla extract, cinnamon, sea salt and ice cubes. The ingredients are blended until smooth, frothy and delish. 

This drink is perfect before a stressful meeting (even a parent-teacher conference), or try it right before your daily meditation session to get into a peaceful headspace. The preparation of matcha is the focus of Japanese tea ceremonies, and it has long been associated with a "Zen state of mind." Namaste!
