This warm, frothy beverage is great around any time of the day. It is especially worth trying if you are trying to cut back on your coffee intake. Not to mention, matcha has endless health benefits. It is high in antioxidants like EGCg, boosts the metabolism, burns calories, detoxifies the body, lowers cholesterol and blood sugar, prevents disease, and overall enhances mood and energy. To start off your day with this delicious latte, you’ll need some matcha powder, maple syrup (or any other liquid sweetener), unsweetened almond milk (or any milk you prefer) and coconut oil. You can find the full recipe and instructions here.
