Green Tea Matcha Latte

How do you warm up on a cold winter day?

I am not a coffee drinker so my latte choice is a matcha latte (I am also a tea addict). Pure matcha does so much more then warm you up on a cold winter day (that is just one of the many benefits). Pure matcha offers more health benefits than green tea because when you ingest matcha you are drinking the whole leaf. Amongst matchas many benefits it: it is an antioxidant powerhouse, boosts metabolism and fights calories; boosts energy to help get you through your day whether at school or work leaving you without jitters and a caffeine crash.

Ingredients: 

Serving size: 1 Matcha tea latte

– On the stovetop, warm up your almond milk in a pot. Use a medium heat & whisk milk as it heats up.

– While milk is heating on the stovetop; add the 1/4 cup of boiled water to the teaspoon of matcha- vigorously whisk 1 teaspoon of matcha in a zig-zag motion until all lumps & clumps have dissolved.

-Once milk is steamed pour it into a mug and add  the matcha & water.

-Now enjoy!

-Feel free to sprinkle the top with matcha dust or my favourite is adding a dash of cinnamon.
