Mint Matcha Latte
Matcha lattes don't get any healthier or easier than this. Simply blend matcha with hot water, cashews, dates and peppermint extract for a minty, frothy drink. Enjoy this lightly caffeinated drink in the morning or in the afternoon for a healthy little energy boost.
- 2 cups hot water
- 2 teaspoons matcha green tea powder
- 1-2 Medjool dates, pitted
- 1/4 cup raw cashews
- 1/8-1/4 teaspoon peppermint extract
I recommend starting with 1 date and 1/8 teaspoon of peppermint extract. Try it, then adjust to taste. You get a stronger matcha taste when using less dates and peppermint extract, so if you want a sweeter, less green tea-tasting drink, use 2 dates and 1/4 teaspoon peppermint extract.
This drink works best with a strong blender. If your blender is on the weaker side, strain your milk using a fine mesh sieve or nut milk bag. Your drink should be smooth.
