Matcha is a highly concentrated powder made from ground whole green tea leaves. It is full of catechins, making it an antioxidant rich superfood bursting with anti-caricinogenic properties. With a deep, yet mellow taste and some caffeine, it provides a calming boost that heightens alertness, but doesn't give you jitters. You can use matcha to make teas, smoothies, and even baked goods. This here is my easy morning matcha tea drink which is quick, easy and worth making!
- 1 cup almost boiling water
- 1 teaspoon high grade matcha powder
- 1 teaspoon coconut butter (optional)
- 1/4 cup coconut milk, heated
Blend all ingredients together for 1-2 min and sip immediately. Serve hot or cold over ice.
