Apothe-Cary Series: Matcha CBD Latte
If you don't know this about me already, I love matcha. I'll scream it so the heavens can hear me. Matcha is an incredible superfood. It's full of antioxidants and it's an excellent substitute to coffee. I know many people who have done the switcheroo from coffee to matcha.
I've teamed up with Buddha Teas for this Matcha CBD Latte recipe. I've been teaching CBD Yoga classes and I'm in love with teaching them. My students tell me after class that they feel so blissful and relaxed. So with that said, I wanted to incorporate CBD into my matcha latte to make this tonic even more powerful and healing for your wellbeing.
Here's what you need:
- 1 Tsp Matcha powder (I chose to use ceremonial grade, but you can use regular matcha powder)
- CBD Tea or CBD water
- 1 Tbsp Raw Honey or 1 Tsp Maple Syrup (vegan option)
- Cashew Milk
- 1 1/2 cups of water
Heat up filtered water to a boil.
*If you have CBD tea, strain the tea into the water. *If you have CBD water, add as much CBD as you like, but make sure you have a ratio of 1 1/2 cups of water altogether.
Pour the water into a blender then add 1 Tsp of matcha powder into the mix. Add the 1 tbsp of honey or 1 tsp of maple syrup, and then blend all the ingredients together.
The blender really makes the matcha latte frothy which I love! Pour the mix into a cup and then add as much cashew milk as you like. The cashew milk makes the latte creamy and thick. I like my matcha strong, so I put a dash of cashew milk.
Benefits of Matcha:
Matcha is high in antioxidants which help build immunity, protect from UV radiation, and environmental stressors. It also contains catechins/ ECGC's that are recognized to prevent and fight cancer. ECGC's make up 60% of matcha (Ahh-mazing).
Matcha contains L-Theanine which help to enhance a calm sense of being. So you'll overall feel nice vibes sipping on your matcha. The same L-Theanine also helps with concentration and boosts memory. (Triple threat!)
Matcha is also a great body detoxifier. The high chlorophyll content in matcha that gives it that gorgeous green color, helps remove heavy metals and chemicals from the body. (I'm in love <333)
