Vegan Matcha Latte Smoothie Bowl
All of our real food crushes in one place
While our hearts will always be with our beloved butter coffee — there is a new kid on the block stepping into the limelight.
You're seeing matcha lattes, matcha cookies, and matcha smoothies all over social media for good reason. For those that don't love or do well on coffee, matcha offers a creamy alternative that is lower in caffeine and higher in antioxidants.
That's why we crafted our Golden Milk Matcha for a healing, healthy, and energizing alternative to a morning (or afternoon) cup of coffee.
How is matcha different from regular green tea, you ask? Good question!
While matcha and green tea are derived from the same plant, matcha is made from de-stemmed and de-veined green tea leaves and then ground into a smooth powder. Unlike it's counterpart that can be harvested with a machine, matcha must be harvested by hand requiring more time and care. Unlike green tea leaves left in the sun to dry, matcha leaves are placed in the shade which contributes to the rich green color and more nutrient dense nutritional profile.
So, when you slowly sip on your matcha latte savoring the subtle sweetness and rich, velvety, creaminess, you are also receiving:
- 10x's the amount of antioxidants than green tea
- steady, grounded energy
- metabolic boost
- a dose of chlorophyll, a natural detoxifier for the body
- feel good, relaxed mood
Whether you are located right here in Austin, Texas, or anywhere across the USA we have a matcha option for you. Onsite at our locations, opt for the Golden Milk Matcha or Matcha Latte.
The Golden Milk Matcha is made with matcha green tea, grass-fed butter, MCT oil, turmeric, black pepper, clove, cayenne, cinnamon, maple syrup, and whey protein while the classic Matcha Latte is simply prepared with matcha green tea, coconut milk, MCT oil, and maple syrup.⠀
Just like our famous butter coffees, both onsite options are infused with the highest quality, functional ingredients. Hello, brain-boosting MCT oil, dairy-free coconut milk, and mineral-rich maple syrup.
Don't live locally? No problem. Our Golden Milk Matcha is for you and we'll happily deliver right to your doorstep. Stock is limited, order yours here.
