Upgraded Coconut Matcha Latte

I know. 

I know.

Lately, I've been making a lot of Dave Asprey’s Bulletproof-style beverages. They give more energy to my day, fuel my brain and body, are quickly made, and they get me through the early part of my morning or during that midday slump.

Today, I’m sharing an organic matcha tea, created Bulletproof-style. Matcha tea is green tea, where the leaves are ground and consumed whole. It’s a beautiful drink, and the rich color reminds me of the lushness of the PNW.

So, this upgraded matcha latte has got all the goods: matcha powder, coconut mylk, Bulletproof Brain Octane oil, 4th & Heart Madagascar Vanilla Ghee, sweet leaf stevia vanilla drops, hempseeds and collagen peptides, all blended up to frothy deliciousness.
