Ever since being diagnosed with PCOS, I've been a matcha lover! I reduced the amount of coffee I was drinking and swapped in matcha for a little less caffeine, and I've been hooked on this matcha green tea latte ever since.
Not only is it great for you and gives you a boost, it's also a great way to add some extra supplements into your diet by drinking them. My favorite thing to add to my matcha latte are Garden of Life Grass Fed Collagen Peptides.
4 Benefits of Collagen:
It's tasteless and dissolves so easily into hot drinks, which is why I love it! Here are some other reasons I add it to my matcha latte each day:
- Promotes skin elasticity, strong nails & healthy hair
- Supports joints & mobility
- There's 1.5 Billion CFU probiotics for digestion in Garden of Life Collagen (hellooooo gut health!??)
- Helps build muscle and burns fat
What is a matcha latte?
A matcha latte is a milk-based latte made from matcha powder. Matcha powder originates from Japan and is stone ground green tea leaves.
Are matcha lattes good for you?
Matcha is really good for you! It's filled with antioxidants, fiber, chlorophyll, and vitamins. When you make it a bulletproof collagen latte and add grass-fed butter or coconut oil and Garden of Life Collagen, you stay full throughout the morning and you add all the awesome benefits that come with collagen.
Garden of Life Collagen is certified keto, paleo-friendly, and gluten free so if you follow any of those diets, or an anti-inflammatory diet, it's safe to eat!
How to make a matcha collagen latte
- Start by adding the matcha powder to your serving mug with sweetener and hot water. Mix well using a bamboo whisk, metal whisk or spoon. Then, set it aside to get your milk ready.
- Heat the milk in the microwave or over the stove, then add the butter or coconut oil and the collagen. Use a blender or handheld frother to get the milk mixture really foamy. Pour the milk over the green tea mixture in your serving mug and enjoy!
