With three kids and a baby who is protesting sleep I depend on my coffee in the morning to get me going. When it comes to the afternoon however I like to make the switch to tea because I find it gives me a boost without giving me the jitters, anxious feelings and doesn’t keep me up all night. Lately, I have been going for a creamy matcha latte. I love how green and earthy it tastes and I find that it gives me an energy boost while also helping me to feel calm and focused.
So what makes my matcha latte so special? I say the cinnamon! Who knew matcha and cinnamon could taste so good together?
1 tsp matcha
1 tsp maple syrup
1 spoonful artisana organics coconut butter
4 oz homemade plant milk
4 oz hot water
Big dash of cinnamon
I blend mine straight in my breville frother but you could use a handheld frother or add to blender.
What is your go to afternoon beverage? have you tried matcha?

I’m going to have to try this. I’ve heard so much about Matcha recently but haven’t tried it. It looks yummy in the picture!

I’ve never had cinnamon and matcha together but I bet it’s a great combo!

It’s so funny, I’ve literally NEVER thought to make a matcha latte myself…but this looks so easy, delicious and doable… I have been craving yummy, frothy hot beverages so I’m all about this – thanks for the inspiration!
Yum, I LOVE matcha lattes and it’s genius to make them at home so you can really customize the flavor!
