Matcha lattes don't get any healthier or easier than this. Simply blend matcha with hot water, cashews, dates and peppermint extract for a minty, frothy drink. Enjoy this lightly caffeinated drink in the morning or in the afternoon for a healthy little energy boost.

Preparation

  1. Blend all the ingredients in a high-speed blender for 30 seconds or until smooth and frothy.

Notes

I recommend starting with 1 date and 1/8 teaspoon of peppermint extract. Try it, then adjust to taste. You get a stronger matcha taste when using less dates and peppermint extract, so if you want a sweeter, less green tea-tasting drink, use 2 dates and 1/4 teaspoon peppermint extract. This drink works best with a strong blender. If your blender is on the weaker side, strain your milk using a fine mesh sieve or nut milk bag. Your drink should be smooth.
