Oof. I love me some warm milk. Always have.  

When I was younger my parents tried to cut me off. Rude!

They thought I was getting too old to be drinking milk from a bottle. I thought about it for a hot second, then said, “heck no!”. 

I refused to let them take away my “bot bot”.  That’s the day I got off my butt and learned how to warm up my own milk. Not kidding, I actually learned how to climb up my parent’s kitchen cabinets and use the microwave.

Flash forward..

Nothings changed. Still a lil’ rebel.

Except sometimes I now mix in a lil’ bit of coffee. I absolutely love coffee, but coffee doesn’t love me. Everyone responds differently, but it can make me and my super sensitive nervous system pretty shakey. I’m also severely anemic, so it wasn’t helping that situation at all. 

After a while, I realized what I loved most about coffee was its warmth.  Matcha can do that too! And…

Matcha, to me, feels like more of a stable high.

So this is my lazy girl’s guide to the perfect cup of matcha.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • matta latte powder
  • milk
  • ghee (0r creamer)
  • sweetener (optional)
  • bee pollen (optional)

Personal Picks:

1) Matcha Latte Powder – I alternate between two brands. I used to buy Vital Proteins (link to Amazon) because it was the first one I heard of, super high quality, and had collagen included. But, because I’m a pretty big homebody these days and do most of my grocery shopping online, I switched to Primal Kitchen’s Matcha Collagen Keto Latte Powder (link to Amazon) so I could just add it into my regular Thrive Market order. Both options contain added collagen and I’m definitely not an expert on breaking down nutrition labels, but they seem comparable to me.

2) Milk- I swap cow’s milk for almond milk (or oat milk). If I’m making cold matcha I’ll go with coconut milk.

3) Creamer- You can buy a powdered creamer or a liquid creamer, but I like to add in a tablespoon of ghee or a tablespoon of a Thrive’s ghee/coconut oil mix. 

4) Sweetener- I like using honey (or maple syrup)

Optionals:

5) Bee Pollen

How To Make It:

Heat up your choice of milk and add in your matcha latte powder.

Add in some ghee and maybe some sweetener. Stir or fluff with a milk frother like the Aerolatte Milk Foamer. Sprinkle with some Bee Pollen.

..AND…

THAT’S IT. THAT’S ALL. You got it.
