Matcha green tea is likely to be the healthiest beverage on the planet, (aside from good ol’ water, that is!) Here are some of the reasons why:

  • This minimally processed powdered version of green tea is extremely high in nutrients.  So much so, that it is said to offer FIVE TIMES the disease-fighting antioxidants than any other tea!
  • It is a no-jitter version of caffeine that creates “a calm sense of heightened alertness and presence of mind.” For these reasons, Japanese Zen Buddhist Monks drink matcha green tea before meditating.
  • Studies show that matcha green tea may boost your metabolism, thus enhancing weight loss.  (Especially when consumed before exercising!)

However, after posting my YouTube video about this super healthy drink, I had a handful of people tell me that they just aren’t a fan of how green tea tastes.  After hearing this a few times, it was clear that a delicious tasting yet healthy matcha beverage was needed. So, this Mint Matcha Latte was created!

The bonus: this recipe includes fresh spinach, which not only makes the drink a nice bright green color, but it also adds even MORE nutrients (plus fiber!) to the mix, and you won’t even taste it!

Full grown or baby spinach will do!

This is how you make it:

  1. In a blender, add warmed almond milk, matcha green tea, mint, sweetener of choice, and spinach.
  2. Blend until liquified.
  3. Enjoy!!
