Iced Matcha Almond Milk Latte: Almond milk, almond milk ice cubes, matcha green tea powder and maple syrup…..just blend and enjoy!
Happy Memorial Day weekend!
It sure got HOT fast today. After spending too leisurely of a morning around the house I finally got out for a jog in the woods where I was out of the sun– but my body hasn’t adjusted to running in the warmer weather yet. I managed only two and a half very slow miles with walking before and after. BUT… as always, moving in nature and surrounding myself in the quiet and greenness of the trees left me feeling better than when I started. 🙂
And I sure was hot and thirsty when I got home.
Last week I came across this Iced Vanilla Bean Matcha Latte recipe from the Oh She Glows blog. I simplified her recipe, excluding the wheat grass and vanilla bean because I didn’t have them. I’ve also made this with honey and with a date as a sweetener substitute for the maple syrup.
So good and refreshing! I just wanted to share her delicious drink because I do get a lot of questions asking what to drink besides water. When you’re cutting out sugary and artificially sweetened beverages it can by tricky to find alternatives. You’re usually going to have to whip up your own. Luckily it’s EASY and with natural sweeteners like dates, maple syrup and honey– and using just a small amount– you can sip something other than plain water while still being good to your body.
Have fun and stay cool the rest of your weekend!
