Royal Recipes: Marine Matcha Latte
People are enjoying their caffeinated beverages in many new ways, and while we think buttered coffee is a fun start, we’ve got an even more delicious take on matcha for you to experience.
Matcha, which literally means “powdered tea”, is simply another way to enjoy green tea. The powdered leaves blend into a smooth texture, and because you are consuming the whole leaf you receive a more potent dose of nutrients than you’d get from steeped green tea. To this we’ll add spirulina powder, a true superfood algae with numerous vitamins and amino acids. A touch of coconut oil and hemp milk add anti-inflammatory omega fatty acids and take it to the latte level, creating a richness you are sure to love.
The taste is just the hook though, because this mixture delivers a hefty dose of antioxidants and nutrients, along with there perfect amount of caffeine, to help keep your skin healthy and your mind sharp.
- 1 tsp coconut oil
- ¼ cup hemp milk
- 1 packet Blue Majik spirulina
- 1 tsp matcha
- hot water to taste
Blend gently with a whisk or battery-op latte foamer.
Blue Majik is pure spirulina powder from the sea. It supports healthy joints and flexibility. It's also a great source of antioxidants for cellular protection. You can expect increased energy, vitality and endurance.
Matcha tea provides potent antioxidant protection for preventing cancers, heart disease and inflammatory conditions.
Coconut oil is one of the best superfoods on the planet! It's a medium chain triglyceride that is actually not stored as fat at all. In fact, coconut oil is processed by the liver, so it's immediately converted to energy instead of being stored as fat. It also helps suppress inflammation and is known for enhancing brain function.
Hemp milk is a wonderful source of minerals, omega 3's, vitamins A, B & E and contains a surprising amount of plant protein to help build muscle strength.
