If you’re following my blog, you’ve probably noticed my obsession with iced and blended stuff that’s been going on lately. Yup, summer is not kidding around here so naturally, I’m looking for refreshment in everything I eat and drink. Since I’m super lazy to make breakfast with solid food, smoothies are on my menu like daily. Can you blame me for loving Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie?! I didn’t think so. But besides a nutritious smoothie breakfast, my morning routine also includes a favorite wake-me-up drink – coffee.

I started drinking coffee some months back after I had a really long pause. Now I’m able to enjoy coffee again without any tummy problems, so Iced Coffee Protein Shake is my morning no.1 drink. That shake is cooling + loaded with caffeine that shakes me and wakes me nicely.

But lately, something changed in my routine. I discovered Matcha again and this Iced Coconut Matcha Latte quickly became my newest obsession. And I’m not alone in this total adoration. My hubby shares the same passion for this amazing green tea drink as well.

This matcha green tea is a superfood goodness that is so tasteful, so amazing, and so super HEALTHY. It wakes me up gently and keeps me sharp for hours + it has so many benefits. I really LOVE IT! Coconut flavored and cooling, so creamy and so sweet tasting… It’s really hard to stop sipping on this deliciousness once you start.

What Is Matcha Green Tea?

If you’re new to Matcha, let me briefly introduce this amazing green tea to you. Matcha is a special type of powdered green tea that is grown and produced in Japan. The matcha green tea leaves are shade-grown for the last few weeks of their growth phase which makes leaves produce more chlorophyll giving the matcha this amazing recognizable green hue. Also during this phase, the plant produces more L-Theanine – a substance that has a somewhat similar effect in our body as caffeine does – minus nervous energy many experience when drinking coffee. After harvesting, leaves are carefully ground with stone grinding wheels to produce a fine powder – Matcha.

Matcha is then used to brew an antioxidant-rich frothy green tea. Unlike other types of teas, matcha is not strained out before consuming. You are consuming the entire leaf which makes matcha very potent. Matcha green tea contains a powerful arsenal of vitamins and minerals but also a unique, strong antioxidant which isn’t found in other foods. That’s why matcha is known to be one of the worlds powerful superfoods.

If you are doubtful about matcha taste – don’t be frightened by its green almost florescent look. The taste is subtle leafy and mildly sweet. That’s of course if you bought a good quality matcha powder. I always buy only the highest ceremonial grade matcha because I love my matcha strong and powerful but also sweet tasting. Recently I gave a try to this Organic Green Tea Powder from Indigo Herbs and I was delighted. It’s the finest quality matcha tea, bright green and lightly sweet. It’s not bitter like other matcha teas I’ve tried.

To make this incredible Iced Coconut Matcha Latte I used coconut milk as a base in which I added a bit of organic virgin coconut oil – to enhance coconut flavor and to add up some nutrition. Both coconut milk and coconut oil transformed this latte into the indulgent drink.

Coconut milk is naturally sweet, sweeter than for example almond milk. That’s why I didn’t use any added sugar to sweeten this beauty up. Of course, you can add some maple syrup or honey, but seriously – invest in a good quality matcha and skip added sweeteners to experience a TRUE MATCHA unbelievable taste.

To make the latte even more flavorful, I added a hint of vanilla too. Both coconut and vanilla goes perfectly with the beautiful green tea taste and mild sweetness of the matcha. It’s a pretty awesome drink!

This Iced Coconut Matcha Latte is loaded not only with amazing taste, but also with many nutrients – healthy fats from coconut oil and milk, as well with powerful amino-acids and antioxidants from matcha. It’s a real SUPER POWER DRINK, perfect coffee alternative with so many health benefits.

Since L-Theanine in matcha promotes a state of relaxation and well-being but still has somewhat the same effect as caffeine in our body, you can enjoy your matcha green tea latte any time of the day – as a wake-me-up drink in the morning, or a pick-me-up in the afternoon… or anytime you need extra focus. Matcha promotes concentration and clarity of mind without any side effects – like caffeine does.

This Iced Coconut Matcha Latte is super easy to make. You really don’t need any fancy bowls, whisks or scoops – although it’s cool to have a matcha making set. So if you have a set, use it, if not, a simple shaker will do the job nicely.
