GREEN MATCHA LATTE
When I travel to S. Korea to visit my international student's families this is always a major purchase for me. Also, when I receive a 'care package' from them this is the favorite addition to my package, plus the Kimchi~oh yeah!!!
This is a very easy matcha latte recipe that you can enjoy cold in the hot summer months or warm in the cold winter months. It only takes a few minutes to make and is great in the morning or at any time of the day.
Matcha is a green tea that is rich with powerful antioxidants, which help to stop the effects of harmful free radicals within the body. It is a great drink that helps to stimulate the mind and increase its thinking powers and efficiency. As a result, matcha is a great and natural alternative to coffee when consumed in the morning as it has the same benefits, yet without the side effects.
Matcha green tea powder is quite expensive, but the benefits of this tea are well worth it. Among the many benefits, it increases energy levels, increases mental alertness, helps eliminate parasites, boosts the immune system, fights against heart problems, and helps with weight loss. Also, a wonderful addition to those with ADD or ADHD.
1 tsp. Matcha Green Tea Powder (I use 1 T., it's not too strong)
1/2 cup Warm Water
1 cup Raw Almond Nut Milk
1/2 tbsp. Raw Honey or Agave
1/2 tbsp. Raw Coconut Oil
Heat the water to a warm temperature and stir in the matcha powder, honey and coconut oil until dissolved. Stir in the nut milk and with a stick blender give it a quick blend.
For a cold drink you can chill it in the fridge for an hour or serve it on ice cubes. For a warm drink, heat the nut milk on low heat until warm and consume immediately.
Hope you enjoy it!xoxo~Rita~/~
