White Chocolate Matcha Latte Recipe
Whether I’m drinking hot chocolate, coffee, or matcha, my taste preference is, the creamier the better. I just love that decadent and foamy taste, which is why you’ll see me adding some kind of dairy-free milk to my drinks. So to make my original matcha latte recipe even more creamy, I thought, “Why not add white chocolate?” Turns out, white chocolate and matcha are a match made in heaven, and this delicious recipe is a proof of that.
What Is Cacao Butter?
You’ll notice that I add cacao butter in this recipe, and I get asked often, “What actually is cacao butter?” Cacao butter is what white chocolate is made of and it comes from cacao beans. It’s actually quite healthy and packed with nutrient-rich fats and antioxidants.
While white chocolate is a mixture of cacao butter, sugar, and other additives, cacao butter is less processed while tasting like creamy white chocolate if you use them in recipes the right way. It’s a perfect addition in this white chocolate matcha latte!
Pique Tea Sun Goddess Matcha
I recently tried out a new-to-me matcha brand, Pique Tea Sun Goddess Matcha, and it has quickly become my favorite. Not only is it so smooth and tastes amazing, it is the world’s PUREST Ceremonial Grade matcha. It is the FIRST matcha to Quadruple Toxin Screen for:
- Heavy Metals
- Toxic Mold
- Radioactive Isotopes
Why are these tests needed?
The DISTURBING Truth About Matcha
It probably never crossed your mind, but what if the very drink you’re drinking for health could be a brew of pesticides and other toxins? Turns out, the highest grade ceremonial grade matcha is never organic, and organic matcha is never the highest grade.
Farms in Japan are located very close to each other so ‘pesticide drift’ is a huge problem. Chemical pesticides and herbicides used on one farm get carried by wind to adjacent farms! And hundreds of tons of radioactive water are still being pumped into the water everyday from the site of the nuclear disaster at Fukushima.
When you’re drinking something to improve your health, the last thing you want to do is introduce toxins along with it, especially if it’s a daily habit. Consuming pesticides and herbicides (glyphosate) every day, even in trace amounts, can have scary cumulative long-term health effects.
Why I Chose Pique Sun Goddess Matcha
After studying the matcha-making process and learning from Japanese cultivars and tea masters, Pique finally found the cleanest source. Their matcha comes from a tea farm located in Kagoshima, which neighbors Okinawa, a “Blue Zone” linked to human longevity.
It is also the FURTHEST possible spot from Fukushima’s radioactive and industrial pollution.
In addition, Pique’s matcha leaves are also shaded up to 35% longer than other leaves, which creates a much higher level of l-theanine, aka nature’s chill pill. It’s the ingredient in matcha that gives you calm, focused energy. Raising the level of l-theanine through shading also increases the creamy “umami” flavor of their matcha, which I can definitely taste!
Shading also results in higher levels of chlorophyll which helps flush away heavy metals, toxins and chemicals in your body. How cool is that??
I’m seriously so impressed by this company and the reports that I’ve seen when I asked them for it. No other company has been able to provide me with results to back their claims like Pique has.
