Matcha Almond Milk Lattes

MatchaAlmondMilkLattesMmmmatcha. That’s pretty much what this drink sounds like. Am I mmmm-ing because of how delicious it is? Or because I know that this new guilty pleasure of mine is actually good for me?

Those who know me know I’m aaaall about the tea. I have an entire shelf in my kitchen completely devoted to tea, so naturally I was excited when I got my hands on some matcha powder. It’s full of antioxidants – a quick google search will tell you that matcha powder has more antioxidants in it than blueberries. Or spinach. Or dark chocolate. Need I say more? Pair it with some almond milk and it’s got “Heart Happy” written all over it.

These little lattes are great in the morning for a caffeinated pick-me-up. Matcha can taste fairly bitter, so feel free to add more sweetener to your liking. Forget coffee in the morning and make yourself one of these!
