I love a matcha latte. They perk me up as well as deliver a nice boost of antioxidants. But my love for them is sometimes outweighed by the heavy price tag & all the other junk that can be mixed in. The solution? Craft my own!
I’m on a pretty heavy rotation of super supplements like ashwagandha, reishi, matcha, collagen, chlorophyll &more. So I picked a few of my top players in order to make the most Super Matcha Latte you will ever see.
My holy trinity for this drink: collagen, chlorophyll, & matcha. Why these three? I will definitely write a more in depth post on my favorite supplements in the next few weeks, but for now let me tell you:
Collagen: improves health and appearance of skin, hair, teeth & nails, helps reduce joint pain and ease arthritis symptoms, helps heal leaky gut syndrome, can boost your metabolism, and protect liver & heart health!
What a list! I started taking collagen after learning about my arthritis in my knees. After reading about all the benefits, I made sure to incorporate collagen into multiple servings a day. An added plus is the 10grams of protein per serving in collagen as well!
Chlorophyll: considered a super food because of its strong antioxidant and anticancer effects. In addition, it can help boost your metabolism, improve appearance of skin, detox your liver & help you lose weight.
Matcha: In addition to what I wrote above, matcha is packed with antioxidants including the EGCg (a powerhouse for cardiovascular and metabolic health), boosts metabolism and burns calories, helps to detox your system, and can calm & relax your body.
Just to note, Matcha already contains a bit of Chlorophyll, but I like to add extra. The Clorophyll is optional in this recipe, so feel free to leave it out & let the Matcha do all the work!
¼ cup hot water (right before it starts to boil)
1 teaspoon matcha tea powder (Buy my fave brand here) note, you can bring this up to two teaspoons, but I have found that that much matcha in one serving gives me a headache.
1 scoop collagen peptides (Buy my fave brand here)
⅛ teaspoon vanilla bean powder (Buy my fave brand here)
15 droplets Chlorophyll (Buy my fave brand here)
¾ cup unsweetened soy milk (or your fave milk or milk alternative)
1 teaspoon sweetener (honey, agave, etc) optional
Once matcha is whisked smoothly, add all of the other ingredients in and whisk again until smooth and frothy. Pour over ice & enjoy!
