another day, another matcha! this past year i have grown to love matcha oh so much. i know it’s trending & everything but it really deserves the hype.

i haven’t cut coffee out entirely (#myfirstlove) but i love switching between matcha & coffee. coffee gives me a quick burst of energy where as matcha gives me a steady energetic flow, without any jitters.

some benefits of matcha include:

  • high in antioxidants

  • improves mental focus + clarity

  • detoxifying properties

  • good for hair skin + nails!

  • contains an amino acid known as L-Theanine which promotes the production of alpha waves in the brain

  • induces relaxation without the inherent drowsiness caused by other “downers"

alright so there you have it! it took me a few times of drinking matcha to like it, but now i’ve got my recipe down to a science. here’s how you can make this creamy, delicious matcha latte!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
everyday matcha recipe:
〰 6oz of hot water ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
〰 6oz of warmed milk (almond, oat, or cashew milk works!)
〰 1tsp mizuba tea co matcha!
〰 2 scoops vital proteins collagen
〰 1 tbsp coconut buttah ✨
〰 1/2 tsp moon juice chaga ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
〰 tiny bit of organic maple syrup 🌲
👉🏼 combine everything in a blender & blend on high for 1 min & pour the tastiest, frothiest goodness into your fave ceramic mug 😋

the best homemade almond milk

this stuff has ruined me! in the best way. storebought almond milk will never taste the same after you make this.

1. soak 1 cup almonds in water for 8-12 hours
2. rinse almonds well, discard the water, then add the nuts to a high speed blender. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
3. add 5 cups of water, 5 pitted dates, 1 tsp cinnamon & a pinch of sea salt. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
4.  blend on high for 1 min. pour milk through a nut bag (or cheese cloth). squeeze thoroughly to get all the güüdness out 💫 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
5. refrigerate in an airtight jar for up to 5 days (if you can even let it last that long😉) save the blended up almonds & use them in something else like protein balls. just google some recipes!

use this creamy goodness in your coffee, matcha, cereal, etc!
