Matcha is a great way to supplement your energy levels while on the Keto diet. Keep reading to learn some of the best matcha recipes to support you while you’re on the ketogenic diet!
The Benefits of Matcha
Our Wild Matcha is made from ground tea leaves. Unlike the traditional infusion process that involves soaking the leaves in water – then discarding it – our process allows you to get the benefit from the entire leaf. All you need to do is whisk it into a recipe and consume it whole!
Matcha can help you get an energy boost without having to deal with a crash like you would if you drank coffee. This is because the caffeine is slowly released over time, so you can enjoy the benefits for anywhere from 4 to 6 hours.
Not only is it a healthy alternative, but our Wild Matcha is also potent. It is equal to almost 10 glasses of regular green tea when it comes to nutritional value.
Here are some great recipes:
A Keto Matcha Latte is a delicious way to enjoy your matcha powder.
Start by warming up one cup of almond milk for about 1 minute and 30 seconds. Note that you may need to adjust the time based on the strength of your microwave – you don’t want to overcook the milk!
Once it is warm, add in a scoop of your Wild Matcha. If you would like to add some sweeteners you can, but you don't have to. You can even incorporate some MCT oil to boost the effects of your keto diet!
Next, use a frother or hand blender to mix all these ingredients. You will know your latte is ready when it has a foamy texture.
To complete the Instagram-worthy garnish, top your latte with whipped cream and a sprinkle of matcha powder.
All that’s left to do now is enjoy!
If you prefer a cold drink, try making a Matcha Frappuccino.
This recipe requires you to blend almond milk, matcha powder, ice, vanilla, and heavy cream in a blender. You can blend the ingredients to your desired consistency, then taste a sample of it.
To make the frappe thicker, simply add more ice. Similarly, you can add more matcha or sweetener to adjust the taste. Note that you should avoid using powdered sweeteners since that can mess up the texture of your drink.
After you have achieved the desired taste and texture, top it off with some whipped cream garnished with additional Wild Matcha.
Green Breakfast Smoothie
You can even use Wild Matcha to make a green breakfast smoothie!
Blend up your favorite greens, almond milk, and a scoop of matcha powder, and you are left with the perfect alternative to a cup of coffee.
