This mate matcha latte will keep you coming back for more. It's light and refreshing but still packs a caffeine punch and is full of healthy antioxidants and nutrients that replenish the body while you sip.
Sounds crazy, but we also add chlorophyll and coconut oil to make it even more scrumptious. Plus this drink is vegan and the perfect fix for those on a no-coffee diet.
Here's the breakdown of ingredient benefits:
- Mate is tea-like beverage made of dried leaves from the yerba mate plant. It is traditionally consumed in South America and has an earthly, smooth taste. Mate is naturally caffeinated and a recent study shows many health benefits including improving allergy symptoms, acting as a weight loss tool, reducing the risk of diabetes, promoting deeper sleep, and increasing mental energy and focus.
- Matcha is a finely ground powder of green tea specifically grown for processing as matcha. Is traditionally consumed in both China and Japan but has become trendy due to it's high antioxidant content. Some claim it creates a feeling of calmness when consumed. It is also naturally caffeinated.
- Chlorophyll, yes the stuff that turns plants green, is really healthy for humans too. It is used to support the body's blood cleansing functions and strengthens the immune and intestinal systems.
- Skinny & Co. Coconut Oil is the only alkaline, chemical-free coconut oil in the world. All other coconut oils, due to processing, are acidic and are filled with solvents, bleach, toxins, and other chemicals. Even "organic" labeled coconut oils are allowed (by the FDA) to use 20% chemicals or toxins in their coconut oils without disclosing it to the public. Because of its alkaline nature, Skinny & Co. Coconut Oil is pH balanced and provides tons of health benefits like boosted metabolism, brain clarity, hydrates cells, and weight loss.
