Energy Boosting Matcha Latte Recipe (Gluten Free & Vegan Friendly)

One of the biggest changes I’ve made is switching out my morning coffee for my morning matcha. While the initial change was difficult, I stuck with it and quickly saw the benefits. One of the most drastic changes was avoiding that jittery over caffeinated feeling that I knew all too well. Another change was avoiding the energy drop that signaled to my brain that it’s time for another coffee. At one point I was having 3-5 cups of coffee per day. That’s a lot of coffee and a ton of caffeine. This caused adrenal fatigue and I constantly felt out of balance and faced a rollercoaster of energy levels daily. With Matcha my energy levels were more stable and I never got that awful jittery feeling that I often faced with coffee. I now no longer consume coffee and have made a total switch to Matcha!

Energy Boosting Matcha Latte Recipe (Gluten Free & Vegan Friendly)

Serving size = 1 latte

Ingredients

  • 1/8 tsp of ground vanilla bean powder (I use Vanillamax by bulletproof)
  • 1/8 tsp of cinnamon ( I use Vietnamese Cinnamon by Frontier Co-op)
  • 1-2 teaspoons of matcha powder (I use Organic Ceremonial by DoMatcha)
  • 1-2 spoons of sweetener of your choice (I use Organic cane sugar or Honey (Not Vg) Other good vegan alternatives are agave and maple syrup)
  • 3/4 cup nut milk (or your favorite non-dairy alternative) (I use Unsweetened by Milkadamia)

 

Instructions

  1. In a cup combine all of the dry ingredients, mix well and set aside.
  2. In a pan bring the milk to a boil and remove from the heat.
  3. Add the milk to your cup of dry ingredients and whisk until smooth. (a bamboo whisk works best but you can use whatever you have on hand)
  4. If using liquid sweetener (honey, agave, maple syrup) add this as your final step and mix well before drinking.
  5. Allow to gently cool before serving and enjoy!
