If you’re trying to cut down on coffee or avoid dairy but you’re missing your morning latte, try making this Almond Milk Matcha to start your day.
Matcha is a Japanese Organic super concentrated Green Tea Powder. It still has a kick of caffeine but comes with so many antioxidants and nutrients (equivalent of 5 cups of green tea!) With matcha we are actually drinking the entire matcha tea leaf which is why it is much more nutrient dense than standard green tea.
Start heating up your milk (Almond/Coconut/Dairy) in a pan.
Meanwhile add just a small dash of boiling water to the Matcha Powder in a cup and mix it all around so it dilutes.
Once your Milk is warm, add to the matcha water and stir. Top up with a bit of honey and some cinnamon.
L-theanine, one of the most prevalent amino acids in Matcha Tea, is known to have a relaxing effect on the body and the mind. Traditionally monks would sip matcha tea to help ease their mind for meditation while the subtle caffeine content creates focus. Have a try and see if it hits your morning coffee spot!
