Vegan and gluten-free Keto matcha latte recipe you have to try.
I’ve been saying to myself that I’m going to swap my morning coffee for green tea for decades.
But I’ve been stalling the swap, not out of my inability to let go of coffee. It’s the lack of an alternative that’s equally worth waking up to.
Frankly, plain green tea can get boring fast, and it’s simply no match for coffee.
Just when I thought I’d be stuck with coffee for life, I found a matcha drink that completely wowed me in a perfect way.
This matcha latte recipe might just be the convincing reason I needed to make that switch. After all, I can totally use a break from having a coffee breath and my teeth getting browned.
Seriously, this green tea matcha latte is a must try.
Not only this drink is tasty, but it’s also easy to make.
It’s also nutrient rich and has a load of antioxidants that keep you young and beautiful. Let me also add that it’s good for weight loss too.
If you haven’t heard, matcha is actually more nutritious than green tea. And here is the little scoop on its nutrition profile.
Matcha Green Tea Nutrition
Matcha is a green powder obtained from ground up whole tea leaves.
Like green tea, matcha comes from the Camellia sinensis plant. But, it is grown differently and has a unique powerful nutrient profile.
A month ahead of harvest, matcha is grown with a cover on top to avoid direct sunlight. This practice increases matcha’s amino acid content and darkens the leaves’ green color.
Once they are harvested, the leaves are removed from the stems to be ground up into a powder known as matcha.
Because matcha is made using the entire tea leaf, it’s said to contain more nutrients than green tea.
Amongst many, matcha has a greater amount of caffeine and antioxidants. All those are known to help improve the heart health, promote weight loss, and protect the liver.
Overall, it’s a health-boosting drink that’s better than green tea and tastier than coffee.
It also sure helps a great deal that it tastes insanely good.
