Matcha latte has taken over the social media - especially Instagram. Most of the recipes that I've seen use only 3 ingredients: almond milk, matcha and sweetener. To make it more suitable for the ketogenic diet, I prepare my matcha latte with coconut milk and a tablespoon of either coconut oil, MCT oil or Brain Octane oil - in a similar way that you would prepare Bulletproof coffee.
While matcha is very high in antioxidants and mind-calming amino acid (L-theanine), coconut milk and oil both provide a quick source of energy. Enjoy a cup for breakfast, afternoon snack or on a fat fast - it's a liquid fat bomb with 94% of calories from healthy fats.
Speaking of fat bombs, many thanks to Amy Berger of Tuit Nutrition for her review of my latest Fat Bombs Book!
