Summer Chillin': How to Make a Vegan Coconut Almond Matcha Latte!

Matcha! This antioxidant powdered form of green tea fires your metabolism while it detoxifies on a cellular level. Enhance your mood with this amazing superfood that will help you focus and stay present! It's perfect after 3 p.m.! You’ll need:

  • 16 ounces coconut milk
  • 4 ounces almond milk (my recipe here)
  • 1 tablespoon Matcha powder
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • pinch sea salt
  • 1 1/2 cups ice cubes

Here’s how to make it:

  1. Add all the ingredients (including the ice) into a blender. 
  2. Pulse until frothy.
  3. Serve over Ice.

Perfect before a stressful meeting like a parent-teacher conference or try right before your daily meditation session. The preparation of Matcha is the focus of Japanese tea ceremonies, and it has long been associated with a "Zen state of mind." Namaste.
