Fat Fueled Matcha

Fat Fueled Matcha

When people think keto they tend to think coffee loaded with fatty butter. But tea also deserves some love. That’s exactly why we’ve shared this recipe for a supercharged matcha latte. It’s simple to make but delivers the flavors and energy you need to start the morning right, wind down the evening, or just take a break during the day.

Did you know that matcha tea has more nutrients than steeped green tea? Before matcha is harvested the leaves are shaded, which causes a flavorful growth in the tea plant. Then its leaves are ground into a fine powder.

What makes matcha special is that its potent with antioxidants known as polyphenols which have been linked to a host of health benefits. At the same time, matcha is traditionally associated with tranquility: bringing your mind to a calm place that lives here and now. Which is exactly why keto needed its own version of matcha: the fat fueled matcha latte.
