Matcha Green Tea Latte

Longing for a latte? Make one with matcha! This finely powdered green tea, popular in Japan, is milled from special shade-grown tea leaves. It’s 10 times more potent than regular green tea, with much higher amounts of EGCG””the antioxidant that makes it so good for you! Because matcha is bitter, a recipe like this is just what you need to drink it down. Mix a scoop with almond milk, vanilla, turmeric and a pinch of stevia, heat until warm, then use a frother for foamy fun!
