Iced Matcha Latte

Last summer Amy came up with the matcha latte that we had here at HQ on a daily basis.  It’s the perfect cooling drink for hot summer days.

And it’s perky too!

This summer I added the coconut oil and hemp seed, which makes it really creamy, not to mention turbo charges the nutrition.

I used Bulletproof coconut oil as it’s liquid even at cold temperatures, whereas the regular coconut oil you may already have can get a bit clumpy when it’s cold.  But if you’ve got a really strong blender, you’ll be fine with either.

You can adjust the amount of matcha here to suits your tastes, and what you’re used to, if it’s too much zing for you.

Have a play with it.

If you don’t have a really strong blender, or if you overdo the ice a bit, you’ll get an icy slushy top to it, which actually, I really like.

  1. Russell, since I did not have today fresh coconut water and also is a bit cold in Paris I made a hot version of this with normal hot water, coconut sugar, some lemon zest and few drops of lemon juice., the rest the same as you.. I served it with vanilla powder on top and it was heaven..:-)) I will try the cold version of it when I will be at my place in Marbella.. Thanks so much for sharing Russell

  3. YUM! I make this often but use coconut milk or almond milk instead of coconut water…I think Amy’s version will be much nicer and lighter to enjoy on warmer weather days, love the idea of adding the Hemp Hearts. Thank you for sharing the helpful product info that Bulletproof Coconut Oil stays liquid in cold drinks, really appreciate that you shared this.Thank you Amy for your delicious recipe and thank you Russell for posting it along with the great photo’s. I L-O-V-E Matcha! ๐Ÿ™‚
