Matcha it to Me Baby

If there’s anything you learn from the University of Toronto — it’s how to get your caffeine fix without the jitters. Green tea, and matcha itself, was the solution for me and it still is! This high grade Japanese matcha powder provides an energy boost, lots of antioxidants (137x the amount of other green teas), and has the added bonus of bovine collagen mixed in to 9 grams of protein per scoop and a massive boost for your joints, skin, hair, and nails!

Vital Protein’s came out with their new line of matcha powders (with collagen) that sang to me ! It’s the highest quality without it being ceremonial and is absolutely amazing! Unlike other matcha powders loaded with sugar, this stuff is fresh and smooth! So skip the Starbucks line (and price tag) and do your body a favour with this healthy and filling matcha latte done right ! 

Recipe:

  • 1 cup near boiling water 
  • 1.5 scoops Vital Proteins Original Matcha (I like it strong) 
  • 1/3 cup warmed coconut milk/beverage
  • 1 tsp of honey or pure maple syrup (to tast)
  • 1/2 tbsp coconut oil 

Mix the powder into the hot water until smooth. Slowly add in the coconut milk, stir until smooth again. Pour into high speed blender with the rest of the ingredient list. Blend on lower speed to get frothy and beautiful. Pour into a mug and enjoy!

Let me know if you try this one out!
