It is not difficult to make either. I have a Nutribullet that I use which makes it super easy to do. Best of all, it doesn't cost as much as a commercial latte beverage.
Now, I can't vouch for the specifics of the healthy part, but the ingredients I put into this are healthy in my mind, so I think it is something good. The best part of it is that it doesn't have all that sugar that you would normally get in commercial beverages.
I'm really trying to cut back on sugar and by drinking this first thing in the morning, it helps me set my tastes and desires for food so I'm not wanting as much sugar. Plus it feels soothing to me and I like that, because it helps me take the edge off of stress that seems to show up in a day.
Here's the ingredients
- 1 Coffee cup of Water
- 1 Handful of Cashews
- 1/2 Teaspoon of Royal Matcha Green Tea Powder
- Small amount of Cinnamon
- 1 Tablespoon of Honey
Here's how I make it
- Place the cashews, water, cinnamon and Matcha Green Tea Powder in the Nutribullet.
- Grind everything up good. I usually shake the Nutribullet container and then run it a few seconds more.
- Place the mixture in a small sauce pan and add the honey. (Hint: I put the honey in a spoon that I can leave in the pan and as the honey warms up, it comes out of the spoon.)
- Warm the mixture up slowly for a few minutes, to the desired temperature
- Pour it into your coffee cup and enjoy
Of course, the Nutribullet I have is by far one of the best things I've ever bought. Sure, I have my Blendtec blender that I use for whole food smoothies every day, but for things like this, the Nutribullet just cleans up easier. It is less mess! It is simple to use!
If you do your research on the Royal Matcha Green Tea, you'll see just how healthy and beneficial this is to your body. It is the high end tea, but using a half teaspoon in this beverage recipe makes it not as expensive.
