There’s nothing like an iced matcha latte to get you over that afternoon slump. While I love coffee, I like the energy boost from matcha even more because it comes without the jitters and anxiety I get from a cup of joe. Plus, matcha tastes good! It has a pleasant, earthy flavor, with a touch of natural sweetness.
Matcha isn’t just for drinking, though. It lends itself to a variety of uses—and since it’s rich in antioxidants, it’s good to work it into your diet wherever you can! I recommend using a matcha that’s made for cooking and baking, like Matcha Love’s Culinary Matcha, when you’re using it in food. One of my favorite ways to use matcha is to combine it with honey and drizzle it over fresh berries—so good and so simple!
