I discovered Matcha Lattes while doing a cleanse where I couldn’t have coffee but could have caffeine.
It was a life saver! I do love a morning coffee but when I’m off coffee this is a great substitute. I also really like to have it in the afternoon for a little lift.
Matcha Powder is a high quality powdered green tea that is best stored away from light and oxygen in order to preserve it’s antioxidant content and beautiful green color.
Some of Matcha’s healthy highlights include:
*high in antioxidants

This dairy free latte contains healthy fats from the coconut milk and oil, as well as a touch of sweetness from the raw, local honey, which balances the bitter properties of the matcha out nicely.
As a warning, there are many brands out there that aren’t pure matcha and have other ingredients and sugar added to them. My brand of choice is DoMatcha.
1/2 teaspoon high quality matcha powder
1/2 cup light coconut milk
1/2 cup hot water
