HOMEMADE MATCHA LATTE (with video)


In June of 2019, I struggled with a really bad car accident. I was riding my bike on the street when a car came up from behind me and hit me from the back. Without going into much detail, I struggled with a long 6 month recovery. I had a concussion, a broken foot, pain, headaches and major inflammation thought out my body. I turned to food to try to help my healing process.


Matcha was the #1 superfood I added into my diet consistently. Why? Because it’s extremely high in antioxidants.


So what is matcha anyway? Matcha is a type of green tea from Japan! It provides a boost of caffeinated energy without the crash that coffee may bring. It can boost the immune system, metabolism and it also enhances focus. When choosing the right matcha we need to ensure it is high quality ceremonial grade matcha from Japan. The one I use is from the brand The Reserve. This brand is Certified Organic by OCIA Japan, vegan and 100% cruelty-free. It is also heavy metal, pesticide and radiation free.


Why do I add the other ingredients? This matcha latte literally healed my body after the accident. The ingredients within it helped lower stress, give my joints a boost of strength, helped release stress & boosts the immune system. All of the ingredients help in some way or another, let me explain here…


Cinnamon: Fights bacteria and can decrease blood sugar


Collagen: When taken consistently, results can show healthier, fuller hair, reduction in fine lines, improved skin elasticity, stronger nails and improved gut health! I use marine collagen by Girl & The Sea. Use the code SAVE3JASMINE for $3 off your order!


Coconut Butter: It is antibacterial, and helps keep the body full for longer! My favorite brand is Motha Butta, you can order it here at NW Bulk Market.
