That’s why this matcha rocket fuel latte is a sure-fire winner for mornings. It’s a silky-smooth, naturally sweet, low-carb beverage that’s dairy-free and keto/paleo-friendly.
And for those of you who “forget” to eat breakfast, this matcha rocket fuel latte can even act as a meal replacement because it’s loaded with healthy fats and collagen protein.
This dairy-free recipe is rich in antioxidants, boosts your metabolism, and has anti-inflammatory ingredients.
The matcha green tea powder is not only an eye-opening pick-me-up; it’s also amazing for you. Bursting with antioxidants, matcha has been linked to so many health properties, it’s mind-boggling. Associated with incredible benefits for the body, beauty, and mind, matcha tea powder truly is a superfood.
In addition, matcha powder helps your body fight cancer. Especially relevant studies have shown that those who regularly consume it have a lower risk of breast, colon, stomach, prostate and throat cancers. It slows the growth of tumors and suppresses aggressive estrogen mediators in breast tissue. Matcha’s catechins also have unique cancer-fighting abilities.
Furthermore, matcha fights the risk of developing type 2 diabetes. Also, a compound in matcha reduces the formation of deposits in the brain which cause Alzheimer’s disease.
Matcha powder also decreases risk of stroke, helps prevents Parkinson’s disease, detoxifies, and has incredible de-stressing effects on the mind. Its L-theanine balances out the caffeine so that you can enjoy an energy boost without worrying about the crash that you’d get with coffee. You won’t be edgy or jittery—just focused and calm.
So why not try this perfect, healthy, coffee-free way to give yourself a boost in the mornings? Or anytime!
