Matcha Collagen Latte

Matcha Collagen Latte

I know Matcha has been the trendy thing in the fitness world, but until recently, I hadn’t tried it.  I’m not a huge tea fan…I do like tea to keep me warm, but given a choice between coffee and tea, I will always choose coffee.

What is Matcha?

Before recently I only knew matcha as a green drink. Matcha is finely ground green tea leaves. It’s loaded with antioxidants, that help fight free radicals in the body. What I didn’t realize is that it’s naturally caffeinated, so it’s best not to drink it with coffee.

I decided to try the newer Matcha Collagen. The matcha collagen has the benefits of collagen peptides as well as matcha green tea.  Double whammy.  I’ve written about it several times, but collagen peptides help to promote healthy hair, skin, nails, joints, and gut.

I decided to be simple and make it to a post-run beverage.

Matcha Collagen Latte:

½  cup of hot water
½ cup almond milk
1 scoop Matcha Collagen

Stir and drink. Like drinking hot cocoa, it’s easy and I’m able to warm up quickly post run.  Plus, it has plenty of protein, so my muscles recover faster after a hard run.

I know I’ll be drinking this more during the colder months. I really appreciate warming up after a run in the cold.
