Is it just me or does the weekday coffee routine get a little boring sometimes?

When I want to switch it up, I always go for steamed milk (yes this is amazing--when you use almond milk and the right blend of spices!), hot lemon water or teas.

One of my favorite teas is matcha. I'm a matcha lover. It's an amazing source of natural green tea energy, its earthy taste goes well with nearly anything and it's great hot or cold. Matcha is also a good source for antioxidants (see chart below).

Because matcha is such a good source of natural elements, I thought it would be fun to create a matcha drink that does even more for the body. Who wouldn't want a (tasty) drink that provides natural energy, antioxidants, amino acids...and maybe even a little protein, skin-feeding vitamins and anti-inflammatory properties?

This recipe is easy to put together, most of the ingredients are regular pantry items and it takes just a few seconds to make in a shaker.
