Morning Matcha Recipe

I’m always looking for a way to put a little extra pep in my step in the morning. I’ve been on the coffee wagon (which gives me a little too much anxiety jitters), then switched to the yerba mate slow train (which has a lovely smokey flavor) and this fall I’m ready to jump on another major trend and go green. Green tea, that is.

Matcha, a loose green tea powder, is a popular ingredient in lattes and smoothies, especially beloved by the Insta-addicted for its vibrant #nofilter hue. We mixed it with some other favorite healthy ingredients and threw it all in the blender for a 5-minute vegan matcha pick-me-up!

DO IT!

  1. Heat up the water until it’s just about to boil. Do the same for the almond milk.
  2. Whisk the heated milk until foamy, then set aside.
  3. Pour the water into the blender, then add dates, mint, vanilla, and almond milk. Lastly, add the matcha powder and stir.
  4. Blend the ingredients until smooth. Pour into a mason jar (perfect to throw a lid on and take to go), and enjoy!
