Matcha Latte Protein Shake
Hello, friends!! It’s been a while since I’ve brought you a recipe!! I always intend to share what I’m making in the kitchen with you all…but to be completely honest, in a family of 6, it can be hard to prep, cook, and photograph the food before someone notices and starts eating said food! Despite its difficulties, I thought it was long overdue. So here we are with one of my new favorite breakfast go to’s: vanilla matcha protein shake.
I am a huge fan of protein shakes. The convenience factor alone is off the charts. Mornings are crazy, and it is just one less thing I have to prep and plan. Plus they keep me grabbing nutrient dense protein packed breakfasts instead of quick, empty carbs (trying to keep my everything bagel seasoning intake to everything but bagels these days). This new vanilla blend is a welcomed addition to add to the mix of my usual go to: a chocolate shake with spinach and almond milk.
A few years ago, I started incorporating matcha into my diet after reading about its many health benefits. Just search matcha benefits on Pinterest, and you will quickly see all the people singing it’s praises. It’s rich in antioxidants; full of vitamins; and claimed to increase metabolism, boost the immune system, and so much more. I personally really love the earthy flavor of matcha, and was looking for an easy way to incorporate it into my routine. Enter the vanilla matcha latte protein shake.
A few tips for your matcha latte:
If you are a matcha latte lover, you will love this take! Here are a few tips:
First, always add greens to your shakes. It is the easiest way to add extra nutrients without even trying (or tasting). I always throw in a handful of spinach and/or a scoop of greens balance to every shake.
Pro tip: pre package your spinach in baggies or pack them in cube trays and freeze for pre prepped, ready to go add in.
Two, make it your own. Add more or less matcha to taste or for desired amount of caffeine boost. Use unsweetened coconut milk for a thicker, sweeter latte. Or try unsweetened vanilla almond milk for a thinner, less sweet option.
Pro tip: Subscribe and Save your cases of almond milk and matcha powder for convenience and savings (Amazon Prime Mom through and through!!).
Next, add honey last. I always try to taste things without added sweeteners first to see if I truly need it. In this case, I find the vanilla protein adds just enough sweet, that I don’t find it necessary. But feel free to add in your sweetener to taste. And lastly, spring for the Ninja Blender with shake cups and pitcher. I use this everyday, and love, love, love it!! It is a must if you are a shake drinker.
