Bulletproof Matcha Latte – Recipe + Health Benefits

bullet proof matcha latte

Lots of people are currently obsessed with bulletproof coffee, which is coffee blended with butter and sometimes coconut oil. The fats help to stabilize blood sugar and provide energy first thing in the morning.

Here’s my take on bulletproof coffee, using my favourite seasonal morning caffeine: matcha green tea. This is a creamy, dreamy morning cup of green-ness that is easier on your body than coffee and the perfect beverage to usher in spring.

Health benefits:

  • Did you know that all tea comes from the same plant? The Camellia sinensis plant can produce white, black and green tea. Matcha is made by grinding the green leaves into an antioxidant-rich powder.
  • Although it contains caffeine, matcha is much easier on the body than coffee. Where caffeine from coffee causes a dramatic rise and then fall in your energy, green tea is much more mellow and much healthier for the adrenal glands.
  • Organic, and more importantly, grass-fed butter, is high in anti-inflammatory essential omega-3 fatty acids. Coconut oil is a medium chain triglyceride, which is used by our bodies for energy (much like carbohydrates). I like to drink this matcha latte before a morning yoga class and find that it holds me over.
Bulletproof Matcha Latte

  1. 1.5 cups hot water (not boiling)
  2. 1 tsp organic* matcha green tea powder (or less if you like a less intense matcha flavour)
  3. 1 tbsp coconut oil or organic, grass-fed butter if possible (or a mixture of both)
  4. Honey, maple syrup, coconut sugar or stevia to taste
  5. Sprinkle of cinnamon (optional)
  1. Put in blender and blend! Pour into a mug and sprinkle the optional cinnamon enjoy. Serves one beautiful person.
  1. *I buy organic matcha from my neighborhood Japanese grocer, although you can get high quality organic matcha from many good tea shops.
