Ok, can we just talk about obsessions for a hot second??
I’ve been mentioning for a few months or so that I am pretty obsessed with collagen at the moment…but who can blame me?? The benefits are unreal…PLUS, you can make some bomb cookies with some vanilla collagen.
Another obsession for the last few months I haven’t quite mentioned yet??…Matcha Lattes…Mmmmm 🍵
So I thought why not combine two of my favorite things and make basically a delicious beauty elixir??
First, one serving is equal to THREE servings of green veggies — yes, that’s right! It includes raw organic greens like wheatgrass, spinach, alfalfa, kale, and barley grass. And second, it has 10 grams of protein AND is only 70 calories.
Why Beauty Greens are a MUST…
♥︎ Promotes collagen formation
♥︎ Helps prevent the signs of aging
♥︎ Improves skin smoothness
♥︎ Increases skin moisture
♥︎ Revitalizes skin tone
♥︎ Reduces fine lines
♥︎ Heals the skin and reduces redness
I could seriously go on and on about these beauty greens…but lets move on to the amazing benefits of matcha, shall we??
Matcha green tea is not only delicious but has a million benefits. Here are some of the benefits, just to name a few…
♥︎ Loaded with antioxidants, including catechin a potent antioxidant that fights against cancer
♥︎ Enhances Calmness + Relaxation – the amino acid, L-Theanine, promotes the production of alpha waves in the brain which induces relaxation without causing drowsiness
♥︎ Boosts Memory and Concentration – L-Theanine also produces dopamine and serotonin, both of which enhance mood, improve memory, and promote better concentration
♥︎ Increases Energy + Endurance – while it naturally contains caffeine, the unique combinations of other nutrients also help to give you a little more energy as well
♥︎ Powerful Detoxifier – high levels of chlorophyll help with naturally removing heavy metals and chemical toxins from the body
So with all of these benefits, why wouldn’t you want to drink this everyday??
To add even more amazing benefits, I sweeten mine with just a touch of raw, local honey. YUM.
- Bring your milk of choice to barely a simmer in a small pot over medium-high heat, remove from heat, and pour into a mug.
- Place the matcha powder in a small bowl, and using the bamboo whisk, slowly whisk in the hot water until a paste forms.
- Transfer the matcha mixture to the mug of milk, add the Beauty Greens and stir until combined. Sweeten to taste with raw honey.
- Serving Size: 1
Have you ever had a matcha latte??
