Matcha Latte

I ordered Matcha last week from Amazon and finally got it today!! I was so excited to give it a try. I was looking online at recipes for Matcha and there are so many different ways.

Has anyone ever tried Matcha and if so do you have a go to recipe?

I might actually try and swap out my morning coffee with matcha for the antioxidant boost. Here is the recipe I tried today.

Ingredients


2/3 Cup unsweetened flax milk
1/2 Teaspoon matcha powder

1/3 Cup Water
Stevia

Directions

Bring 2/3 cup unsweetened flax milk to a bare simmer in a small pot over medium-high heat.


Place 1/2 teaspoon matcha powder in a heatproof cup. Slowly whisk in 1/3 cup boiling water, then flax milk, tipping cup 
slightly to help create more foam. 

Sweeten with stevia


Another option is to pour it in a mini blender for 10 seconds and it blends it perfectly.
