Matcha Collagen Latte
Dr. Tara Weir
MATCHA COLLAGEN LATTENot only is this latte nutritious & delicious, but it’s super quick & easy to make. Feel free to use your choice of non-dairy milk (cow’s milk inhibits absorption of the antioxidants in matcha) and enjoy it warm or cold.
Matcha is made by grinding high quality nutrient-rich green tea leaves into a fine powder. It has a beautiful green colour and a unique, complex taste, with a balance of naturally sweet, malty, bitter and earthy vegetal notes. It is rich in anti-inflammatory, detoxifying, disease-fighting phytochemicals including the subgroup of antioxidants called catechins. One particular catechin, EGCg, is widely recognized for its anti-cancer properties. Matcha is also used to induce a sense of calm while simultaneously boosting energy, concentration, memory and metabolism.
This latte is great warm or cold. For a warm latte, pre-heat the milk before blending. For a cool summery drink, use cold milk and serve over ice.
