Benefits of Matcha and The Only Creamy Coconut Matcha Latte You Need!

August 16, 2020

Matcha is said to be high in antioxidants, chlorophyll and can boost your metabolism but for me, it’s all about the more steady energy boost it gives me opposed to coffee. I have found that coffee does not agree with my digestive system and that my body becomes addicted to it quickly meaning that morning without leads to a serious headache.

The Only Creamy Coconut Matcha Latte You Need!

Benefits of Matcha and The Only Creamy Coconut Matcha Latte You Need!

Matcha is said to be high in antioxidants, chlorophyll and can boost your metabolism but for me, it’s all about the more steady energy boost it gives me opposed to coffee. I have found that coffee does not agree with my digestive system and that my body becomes addicted to it quickly meaning that morning without leads to a serious headache. 


I like to minimize my coffee intake so sometimes I use matcha lattes as the perfect substitute for coffee. 

Plus, this latte recipe is extra tasty because it includes regular coconut milk and coconut milk from the can which makes it more creamy! 

So before we get into the recipe let’s chat matcha. What is all the buzz around matcha? It seems like everywhere we look on instagram, there is someone with a matcha latte. I must say, the taste isn’t for everyone, but as a fan of matcha myself, I think it’s a great treat to have in lattes and smoothies.

So why do I love matcha?

  • it’s high in antioxidants which is good for the prevention of disease
  • it is a good alternative to coffee if you find coffee makes you too jittery but you still want that energy boost
  • contains chlorophyll which is known for its detoxification properties

One thing I want to point out is to have everything in moderation. Like coffee, it still contains caffeine and if you are someone who is sensitive to caffeine or perhaps has issues with sleeping, then I recommend that you watch how much you drink and avoid drinking it in the afternoon!

How do you use matcha?

  • my go-to way is in a latte with coconut milk, coconut butter, and vanilla flavouring
  • it is also great in baked goods
  • and smoothies!

When looking for a good brand, you want to look for the words “ceremonial grade” to ensure that it is high quality. The vibrant green colour is another key indication!

The Only Creamy Coconut Matcha Latte You Need!

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup coconut milk or plant-based milk of choice (or the amount of your mug)
  • 1 can coconut milk (save extra for another serving)
  • 1 tsp matcha
  • 1 tsp maple syrup or honey

Process:

  1. Open a can of coconut milk and remove the excess liquid. Let sit overnight.
  2. ‚ÄčIf you don’t remember, you can add it as is, but it just won’t be as creamy
  3. Take your mug and fill it with milk of choice leaving a little bit of room at the top
  4. Add the milk to a saucepan and heat on medium-low heat.
  5. When it is hot enough add it to a blender with the matcha and maple syrup. 
  6. Blend on high until frothy.
  7. Remove and add a large tablespoon of the canned coconut milk. You can also add it to the blender if you prefer. 

Enjoy!
