So it seems that green is the new black & matcha is this season’s goji berry. Never heard of matcha? It’s green tea powder. Leaves & all. Well the peeps in the know (my inter-web sources obviously) tell me that one serve of this business has more than 10x the nutritional benifits of a regular cup of green tea, more than 100x the antioxidants, it detoxifies, boosts metabolism, enhances concentration and can help calm the mind. God damn, it sound like the only thing matcha doesn’t do is make your bed. Even so, I am pretty partial to a matcha latte myself and it’s a great alternative if you want the energy buzz of coffee without the nervy caffeine buzz and don’t mind too much that your drink is a swampy green shade. Have I sold it to you?
Battling on, I present to you a Matcha Bulletproof Latte because fat in your hot beverage makes the world go round, & matcha balls, because who doesn’t love a few green balls.
Matcha Bulletproof Latte
1/2 tsp matcha powder
1 cup boiling water
1 tbs butter/ghee
1 tbs MCT oil/coconut oil
1/2 tsp honey OPTIONAL
Pop it all in a blender and blend baby blend until that business is frothy & creamy. That’s it.
1 cup raw cashews
1 cups shredded coconut
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1 tbs coconut oil
1 tsp matcha powder
1-2 tbs raw honey (depending on your preferences)
3-4 drops dōTERRA ginger oil – OPTIONAL
Add everything t the food processor & blend until it all starts to come together like a dough. If it’s too dry, add an extra tbs coconut oil, if you blend too much and it’s gets too much like a paste, add some extra coconut. Roll into balls, store in the fridge or freezer. Simple.
