Goodmornin' folks! It is one lovely morning here in good ole', sunny florida so I think I'm going to take a trip up to the beach! Beach in January = one out of many reasons florida rocks. But anyways, this post isn't so I can just rave about florida, lol! If you've read any of my latest health posts, you know I've been experimenting with my diet & figuring out what my body does and doesn't respond well to. One of the things I'm deciding to limit myself with is coffee. I know, I know. You're probably thinking, Well Mands, not only will you suffer, but so will your instagram feed since its like 99.9% of coffee photos. Yes, you're right. But not to worry!! Because I'm putting coffee on the back burner for now, I'm going to be starting my mornings off with more herbal teas! I feel like between coffee & tea, tea definitely has more health benefits, so it only makes sense to give my body something that'll help it, not harm the digestive tract.
Because I like to get most of my energy from healthy fats, I decided to create a twist on Healthful Pursuit's infamous Rocket Fuel Latte (fat-packed morning beverage). So, without further ado, introducing the Matcha Rocket Fuel Latte. This vibrant, warm, & tasty drink is going to give you all of the energy you need for the day because you're getting the energizing effects from the matcha powder & also being fueled by the added healthy fats! If you're not afraid of a power green drink, check out the recipe below. Only 3 main ingredients and super easy to whip up. I'm telling you, this'll be your new morning fix!
Matcha Rocket Fuel Latte
Matcha green tea powder
Coconut oil (or mct oil)
Almond milk or Coconut Milk
Optional add ins:
Kerrygold Irish Grass-fed Butter or Ghee (dairy-eaters)
Cacao butter (non-dairy eaters)
All you have to do is grab your blender, add a tablespoon of coconut oil, a half cup or so of your preferred milk, teaspoon of preferred butter or ghee if you chose to include those (these will just give it a richer, creamier taste!), & matcha green tea powder! Once all the ingredients are in the blender, pour in a mug full of hot water & blend it all up! Enjoy as is, or top with some chia seeds or hemp hearts!
