Happy December everybody! For this month and beyond, I strive to do my best to avoid coffee as much as possible and to replace it with decaf green tea or homemade matcha drinks. I’ve decided to make this change to my morning drink choices since sugary coffee (darn the existence of creamer and condensed milk!) has led to an unhealthy amount of weight gain, and you’d be surprised how much sugary drinks can sneak up on you! As soon as I cut coffee completely out of my diet, I dropped five pounds within a week! (Insert shocked emoji)
Also, I hope you guys can help keep me accountable for sticking with wiser dietary drink choices for months to come - but of course, I’ll sneak in my “cheat” coffee every once in a while, heh ;) In celebration of a healthier future me, I wanted to share an amazing Iced Matcha Latte Recipe that I learned from fellow fitness blogger, Remi from @rrayme, using Milk And Eggs ingredients!
To be honest, I started tuning into more bloggers’ Instastories who often showcase healthier drink and entree recipes in an effort to get healthier. I’ve listed a few more bloggers/influencers pages down below whose recipes/recommendations I love!
My Healthier Blogger/Influencer Inspirations:
Cassie Ho from @blogilates - you have to watch her YouTube video recipes here! I was obsessed with her banana/egg pancake breakfast recipe when I first started blogging!
Marisa Herr from @mariseeezy - aka my best friend! She cooks bomb vegetarian/vegan food with her hubby and showcases it on Instastories from time to time :) Give her a follow!
Ellenor Kim from @spreadfashion - her homemade meals look so damn good!
Now, let’s get on with the awesome iced matcha latte recipe!
Homemade Iced Matcha Latte Recipe
2 tablespoons of hot water
Dash of cinnamon
Add 1 teaspoon of matcha to a bowl and 2 tablespoons of hot water to a mixing bowl. Mix quickly with a bamboo whisk until well blended. Add 1 teaspoon of Coconut Butter and dash of cinnamon and mix again. Pour mixture into a glass cup.
Add ice cubes to glass cup.
Pour 1 cup of Unsweetened Almond Milk into a pot and set heat to high. Heat for 1-2 minutes. However, make sure that the milk does not BOIL - just make sure that it’s lightly heated!
Add heated milk to the glass cup and stir mixture with a spoon. The drink should form a white-green ombre color before turning completely matcha green.
