Matcha lattes are taking over coffee shops, and don’t show any signs of stopping. The antioxidant-rich, green-hued drink makes it a cheery drink for the holidays — and every day. But if you want to curb your latte-spending addiction and avoid hidden sugars in cafe drinks, this matcha latte takes less than five minutes to make and requires just three ingredients. Although matcha has the same amount of caffeine as a cup of coffee, it’ll energize you — without those java jitters. Matcha also contains L-theanine, which has been shown to promote relaxation and combats stress. Win-win!
