Coconut Milk Matcha Latte

Latte’s of any sort make me happy. I’m always trying new things and new recipes. My most recent experiment was a matcha latte with coconut milk. I am currently on the Whole 30 and dairy is not allowed; therefore, I used coconut milk. You are more than welcome to use almond mylk with this recipe if you are not a fan of coconut! But I  found that the matcha and coconut complimented each other very well.

This past Christmas I bought Sam a Nespresso machine and it came with a milk frother. Coolest. Thing. Ever. I use it all of the time! Sam is starting to think I bought him this present for myself… which is NOT true! 😉 I used the frother for this recipe, but using a blender or even a whisk will also work.

What is matcha? It is pure green tea in powder form and is a great drink to have at least 2x a day. Fun fact: it boosts your metabolism! So for all my peeps trying to lost a few lbs… time to invest in this green powder! I enjoyed my latte in a cozy knit sweater and it was the bees knees. Yes, I’m secretly 80 years old.

Notes
  1. Most people like to sweeten their matcha lattes with honey or maple syrup, but I actually like the more bitter taste that it brings. If you aren't a fan - add a teaspoon of honey!
  2. I used a milk frother to blend my ingredients, but a blender or whisk would work perfectly!
