Enjoy this cold or hot, either way it’s a healthy, refreshing drink to start your morning off right!
Hello my name is Lauren Kelly and I am a green tea addict.
There, I said it.
Seriously, I think about it all the time.
I hate the taste of coffee ( I know, I know) and even tried to drink it on graduate school a couple of times to help keep me awake. I can still think about it now almost 20 years ago and it can make my stomach turn. I tried it with the sugary stuff in it because people said there was no way I wouldn’t like it. Yup, I found a way. Mocha stuff, caramel, vanilla…you name it, none of that tasted good to me. Then, I tried it with just milk and sugar. Nope that was even worse. The funny thing was that I was studying nutrition and it didn’t dawn on me that maybe I should give green tea a try. I never really needed caffeine like this before and wasn’t about to start drinking Mountain Dews again like I did in college during finals. No judgements here please!
The first time I drank green tea was with milk and honey because that’s what someone recommended. It’s not like I never had tea before but it was usually black tea or earl grey or something like that. I didn’t love it with the milk and honey so I tried it plain. That’s it, green tea and nothing else. I was hooked. And that’s when my love affair began…
Green Tea Matcha Latte
- 2 teaspoons green tea matcha powder
- 1/4 cup hot water
- 1/2 cup almond milk
- 1 tablespoon 100% pure maple syrup optional
Heat the water in a small saucepan over medium-low heat.
Stir in the matcha powder and continue to stir.
Add the milk and maple syrup if desired.
Continue to stir so milk becomes frothy.
So even though I typically drink my green tea plain, it’s always fun to try different things right? This latte is packed with antioxidants (did I mention how healthy green tea is for you?) and it’s still vegan and dairy-free!
Do you like green tea too? How do you like to drink your green tea?
Thanks for stopping by!
