Matcha Green Tea Latte

Calling all tea lovers!
Every morning I enjoy making myself a warming beverage. Over the years, a large mug of tea has become my favourite way to wake up not only my mind, but also my body. Tea is wonderful way to start your morning as it is a soft and gentle wake up for our digestive system. If tea is not your jam, I strongly recommend having a large glass of water (preferably room temperature as it is much less of a shock for your system) first thing in the morning before consuming food or coffee to get things moving and let your body know it’s time to move!

This recipe calls for both matcha and collagen. I used a local brand of both supplements from a beautiful company called Withinus TruMarine. They proudly source the highest quality products and have outstanding customer service. You can order their products directly online from their website.

Matcha tea and green tea come from the same plant family but are grown differently. Matcha bushes undergo a strict, delicate process and are protected from sunlight before harvest to increase the production of amino acids. Matcha is a vibrant green powder that is packed full of nutritional value including antioxidants, fibre and chlorophyll. Matcha can also help increase metabolism, lower blood pressure and help sustain high energy levels. Matcha does contain a natural caffeine content and is a wonderful substitute if you are trying to consume less coffee.

Collagen is the most abundant protein in our bodies. It’s what helps give our skin strength and elasticity. Our body’s collagen production naturally begins to slow down as we age. Signs of this aging include wrinkles, sagging skin and joint pains due to weaker cartilage. Collagen helps improve skin and hair, strengthen nails and teeth, boosts our metabolism and helps our body detox. Collagen is essentially the glue that helps hold the body together. Collagen is a tasteless and odorless finely ground, white powdered supplement that is easily added to water, smoothies, coffee or tea.

 I also consider this latte to be “bulletproof” as it contains a high amount of fats to fuel your body and your brain while keeping you feeling satisfied or full. If you are looking to make your warm drinks bulletproof simply add 1 tablespoon of coconut oil, grass-fed butter, ghee or hemp hearts and don’t forget to blend! Blending your latte is what creates the frothy layer of foam on the surface. As the weather warms up, this matcha latte is delicious served cold over ice!

  1. In a small sauce pan, heat almond milk. Remove from heat right before it comes to a boil. When you let homemade almond milk bubble, it will curdle and change the taste of the milk.
  2. Transfer almond milk into a high speed blender. Add the rest of the ingredients to the blender with milk.
  3. Blend on high for 1 minute. Latte should be creamy with a think layer of froth on top.
  4. Pour matcha in your favourite mug and enjoy warm!
