Matcha Coconut Latte

If you need a boost in the morning but want to stay away from coffee, green tea is a good option.  You can even make a latte to make it a little more delicious and special. Matcha (green tea) lattes are one of my favorite things.  They are simple to make, delicious and give you a boost of antioxidants.  I like to use coconut milk in mine instead of dairy milk to keep it vegan.  On a chilly morning, this drink is warming, heart healthy and satisfying.  Plus green tea has less caffeine than coffee so you will not be left feeling jittery.
