You’ve all heard of our coconut oil coffee; combining espresso, butter and coconut oil for a fat fuelled, great start to the morning. Now we’ve given our matcha latte a coconut oil makeover.
Combining ceremonial grade matcha green tea powder with coconut oil and butter this is a matcha latte taken to the next level.
All you matcha lovers out there already know why you drink it…its packed full of antioxidants in distinctly higher levels than normal green tea. Matcha contains caffeine, so you’ll still get the energy boost you get from your coffee but, importantly, it also contains L-theanine which alters the effects of the caffeine. This means you get all the good stuff but it helps you avoid the energy crash that you often get a while after your coffee.
This drink isn’t all about the matcha; the butter and coconut oil are really important too. The key component here is the fat content of the butter and oil. Fat makes you feel fuller for longer, so starting the day with a dose of healthy fats will help you through to lunch without reaching for a snack. Fat also slows down the absorption of carbohydrates which helps to reduce insulin spikes and maintain a more consistent blood sugar.
All in all, we think this is a pretty great new drink! Combining the benefits of matcha tea along with healthy fats will give you a great boost at any time of day.
The Coconut Oil Matcha will be available at all of our stores throughout March and April. If you would like yours vegan, just ask our team.
