My Go-To Homemade Matcha

Good morning, lovelies!

How is your Easter weekend starting out? Ours is off to a great start, especially because my husband got home from a business trip late last night. It’s always comforting to know he’s safe. Anyways, we chatted and caught up for a bit, and now I’m sitting here typing away about matcha as I’m indulging in one. I have a dirty (espresso added) matcha nearly everyday, and since it’s such a big part of my daily regimen, I thought I’d share how I make mine with you.

Super Matcha

Ingredients: 

  • 1.5 cups milk of choice (I alternate between almond, soy, and pea)
  • 1 tsp- 1 Tbsp matcha powder of your choice (I like DO Matcha or Republic of Tea. Use whatever you can tolerate. Suggested serving size is 1 tsp to start)
  • 1 scoop spirulina (Optional: I don’t always use this)
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
  • Espresso (optional, but I like my extra boost)

Directions:

  1. Add 1.5 cups milk of choice in blender.
  2. Add remaining ingredients.
  3. Blend for 10 seconds.
  4. Pour over ice or in a mug to warm in the microwave for 30 seconds or so.
  5. Add 1-2 shots of espresso if you so desire.
  6. Enjoy!

Nutrition hot tip: To help manage cortisol and blood sugar levels, consume caffeine AFTER you drink 2 glasses of water and eat in the am.

In caffeinated happiness, Cheers!
