My dairy-free Spiced Matcha Latte is the perfect start to your morning, while the cinnamon, turmeric and ginger take this healthy green drink to a whole new level.
My matcha brings all the boys to the yard…
Too much? Sorry I just started out yet another post with song lyrics. I love music and listen to it on the regular. So more often than not, anything I think or say will eventually get turned into a song. Whether that be in my head, writing, or speaking, it is bound to happen. Today (yesterday) in a meeting at work, I said “HOLLA” (in my Missy Elliot voice) without really realizing it and my coworker friend just looked at me and said “Did you just say….”holla”? Good thing my coworkers understand I’m a big fat weirdo.
Anyways… We’re here to talk about matcha. I first brought you matcha in shake form. But that was summertime and now it is fall. So I’m thinking we’re due for a warm matcha latte. I’ve been adding cinnamon to my matcha lattes for a while now. Cinnamon has some great nutritional benefits. But when Megan at Straight from the Jar posted her turmeric milk… and then not too long after I read Lindsay’s post for this lovely creation, I just knew I had to restock my spice rack with more turmeric. Turmeric also has some great nutrition factors, reducing inflammation being one of them (and seriously who doesn’t need some of that??). But then that led me to look into ginger, which I also love, and ALSO has some great nutritional benefits. SPICE UP YOUR LIFE people. See? It just happens.
Okay, so first things first I boiled hot water and added my spices and green tea to a glass measuring cup. And I whisked whisked whisked (try saying that three times fast) until everything dissolved.
I then warmed my milk up (using the microwave) and added the spiced matcha water to my mug of milk. Whisk again and DRINK UP.
Alternatively you could do this on the stove top and whisk all of the ingredients until mixture starts to simmer, then remove from stove and pour into mug.
The microwave makes for a super quick drink, which I need in the mornings when I opt for this instead of coffee. (Gasp. Yes, I sometimes have a matcha latte instead.)
- Boil water (on stove, in kettle, microwave) and add to small glass mixing cup.
- Add matcha powder, cinnamon, turmeric, and ginger to cup and whisk until combined.
- Warm non-dairy milk in large mug(I used the microwave). Add spiced matcha water mixture to mug of milk and whisk again.
- Add sweetener to taste, and enjoy!
*You can also make this on the stove top by putting all of the ingredients in one pot, and whisking until mixture is simmering. Then remove from heat and enjoy from mug.
*I've also blended mixture in my NutriBullet. Instead of warming milk in microwave, just add directly to blender cup with slightly cooled spiced matcha mixture.
P.S. Do you like my turquoise mug?! Antique shop find 😀
Have a fantastic Wednesday, friends!
