Happy Monday! What better way to start the week than with a hot cup of matcha?! You know how much I love lattes (evident through my Instagram posts and real life), and lately I've been making matcha lattes for my morning kick of antioxidants and caffeine. I can go on and on about the health benefits associated with matcha, but to just name a few... it boosts metabolism, is a natural detoxifier, is rich is fiber, vitamins C, zinc, and magnesium, prevents cancer, ageing, and lowers cholesterol and blood sugar. At the end of the day, it's just good for you!


for one serving
1 cup of almond milk
1 1/2 tsp of matcha powder
a pinch of black pepper
honey/agave to taste

This recipe is pretty straightforward, but this is how I make my lattes: I pour the almond milk into a small saucepan and once it starts simmering, I will put the matcha powder in and whisk it until everything is combined. For a kick of spice, I like to add a pinch of black pepper, and then I'll pour it into a mug and stir in about a teaspoon of honey.

For a really great latte, I recommend finding a milk that works for you. You can use soy, almond, regular milk, but whatever you use, make sure it is unsweetened and especially if you are using a nut milk, use one that has a high ratio of nuts to water, because I've used different types of almond milk in the past, and they never taste as rich. My favourite almond milk is the PC Organic Unsweetened Almond Milk. A lot of the times matcha powder used in cafes contains sweetener powder already milled into it, so it's best to buy it yourself and adjust the level of sweetness that suits your taste. 

Have a great week everyone! I hope you give this latte a try, and if you do, tag me in a photo!
