This recipe is for all of the matcha drinkers who want to cool off your cup of tea for warm weather. This frozen matcha latte is a lovely way to drink your matcha on summer days. It comes together in five minutes, making it the perfect drink to energize you for the day. I like to throw a scoop of vanilla protein powder in mine and enjoy it as a post workout treat. Throw in spinach or kale for extra leafy green nourishment and a more vibrant green color. While you're sipping this frozen matcha latte, you can enjoy reading about the numerous benefits of matcha, which include boosted metabolism and a healthy dose of antioxidants.
