This matcha latte recipe is one of my go-to’s, especially when I’m needing a boost of pure and steady energy. While I am a huge fan of coffee, some days I like to switch off, especially in the summer when an iced matcha is absolutely perfect.

What are the Benefits of Matcha?
The traditional Japanese drink has become popular in Western culture, and for good reason. Countless studies have been done on this green tea, detailing the various benefits that come with it.
In fact, one study detailed that the number of certain catechins in matcha is up to 137 times greater than in other types of green tea. Catechins are a natural phenol and antioxidant that are helpful in a variety of bodily functions.
One of my personal favorite benefits of matcha is the impact it has on our liver. Adding this drink to your daily routine can help flush out toxins and process nutrients.
Ingredients Needed to Make This Hormone-Friendly Matcha Latte:
- Matcha powder
- Grass-fed milk or coconut milk
- Maple syrup
- MCT oil
- Collagen peptides
Hormone Supporting Ingredients
Ceremonial grade matcha powder – Filled with antioxidants, fiber, chlorophyll, and vitamins, matcha is a great drink to add to your diet.
Grass-fed milk or coconut milk – Coconut milk contains medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) which stimulate energy through a process called thermogenesis. They’ve also shown to help support heart health as well.
Collagen peptides – Collagen peptides are an awesome source of protein that can help boost skin elasticity, nail strength, and hair health. There isn’t as much research as I would like, but they can also help support joint and mobility as well.
MCT oil – Adding MCT Oil to your matcha latte, is a great addition. The Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCTs) help transform cholesterol into pregnenolone, which is a key building block of thyroid and sex-hormone creation too.
Maca – This root helps to naturally balance out hormone levels, boost energy, and can even assist in a healthy libido level.
