Dairy Free Matcha Latte (No Whisk Needed, Easy Clean Up) [VIDEO]

Learn how to make the easiest Dairy Free Matcha Latte. You don’t need a whisk, clean up is a breeze, and you’ll love how creamy and frothy it is!

Dairy Free Matcha Latte

It’s been a LOOOOONG time since I made a video, and I’m so excited to be back with a new one! I was really busy for the past several months working on my Korean Paleo Cookbook and haven’t had the time, but I really do enjoy making video and they are super fun for me. If you enjoy my video above, make sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel! I plan to bring you more videos in the future.

Today, I want to share how I make my matcha latte. Every time I post my matcha on Instagram, I receive several questions on how I make it so I’m finally sharing my matcha routine with you that I can point my readers to it whenever you are curious. It’s actually super duper easy and quick, and I don’t use a matcha whisk or strainer or a large blender. Clean up is a breeze and it makes the frothiest, smoothest matcha!

The image above shows some of the ingredients I use in my dairy free matcha latte and I want to break them down for you:

  • Ippodo matcha: I’ve been loving matcha ever since I brought some back from Japan when I traveled there, and I couldn’t find one that matched up to their quality and taste until I found Ippodo’s. Their matcha is so vibrant in color, harvested right, and it’s from Japan, and you won’t want to try other brands after you try theirs. You can save 10% off with my code WGGA10 here!
  • Grass fed collagen: Whether I’m drinking coffee or matcha, I always add a scoop of collagen. It has helped so much with healing my gut health, helping my hair and nails grow, and it’s also great for skin as well. I highly recommend Perfect Supplements’ Collagen Peptide because it’s high in quality, grass fed, and you can’t taste it at all. Get 10% off all their Perfect Brand products with code: GREATGRANDMA10!
  • Bulletproof Brain Octane Oil: This is an optional ingredient, but I love how much focus and energy it gives me in the morning. Naturally found in coconut oil, Brain Octane is quickly absorbed and changed into ketone bodies, giving you energy for better physical and mental performance. The caprylic acid in it is great for combatting digestive issues like candida and yeast. I highly recommend you start out with 1 teaspoon a day and work your way up because it can be a bit too much on the digestive system if you take too much in the beginning.

The rest is super simple. Place the ingredients in a mug and blend everything with an immersion blender (one of the cheapest, most useful tools in my kitchen). It takes just minutes to make, AND you won’t even have many dishes to do afterwards. It seriously makes the creamiest and frothiest matcha latte!

Turmeric Ginger Bone Broth Smoothie Bowl

This Whole30 and paleo Turmeric Ginger Bone Broth Smoothie Bowl is low in sugar, packed with gut healing nutrients, and so thick and yummy. 

Turmeric Ginger Bone Broth Smoothie Bowl

I know what you are thinking. Bone broth in a smoothie?? What in the actual eff…

I know, I know. But you gotta have some trust because this smoothie bowl is seriously delicious and you cannot taste the bone broth at all.

With all the holiday stress and treats over the past few weeks, my gut is in need of some quality nutrients and healing so I’ve been trying to incorporate as much bone broth into my diet as possible. While this can mean drinking it straight up or incorporating them into soup recipes, I decided to get a bit more creative by making this Turmeric Ginger Bone Broth Smoothie Bowl.

Not only is this Turmeric Ginger Bone Broth Smoothie Bowl full of nourishing nutrients from the bone broth, both turmeric and ginger are anti-inflammatory and are known superfoods that soothe digestion and immune boosters.

Best of all, this recipe is sweetened and thickened with a cooked sweet potato and I did not find that I needed to add any additional sweeteners, making it Whole30 and sugar detox friendly. However, if you are looking for a bit more sweetness, you can add some honey.

If you are looking to switch up your breakfast routine with a healthy and delicious smoothie, I hope you give this recipe a try. Have fun customizing with your favorite toppings as well. I sprinkled in some frozen blueberries, toasted coconut chips, sliced almonds, and some almond butter, and it was dang tasty!

100 Plant Based Whole30 Recipes

This huge collection of plant based Whole30 recipes is just the thing you need to get yourself started on a healthy and sugar free lifestyle that includes high amounts of vegetables!

100 Plant Based Whole30 Recipes

As we approach the new year, I’ve been hearing about many of you who want to try the Whole30 in January which I think is great! However, I’ve also been receiving several questions like, “How do I do the Whole30 without eating a ton of meat?” or… “Is there a way to do the Whole30 by focusing more on vegetables?” And the answer is, HECK YES.

I don’t know why there is such a widely accepted perception that going paleo or Whole30 is so meat heavy. While I do include some kind of protein in all my meals because that’s what makes me feel the best, that’s only a small portion of my plate. 70-80% of my diet is actually vegetables. I love all the micronutrients that I get from eating a large amount of plants and veggies so that’s what I like to focus on.

And to help you do the same for your Whole30 challenge, I put together 100 plant based Whole30 recipes from myself and my fellow bloggers that are healthy and so delicious. While some of these recipes do include meat, vegetables are the star of the dish and make up the majority of the ingredients. I hope this round-up helps you realize that a veggie-heavy Whole30 challenge is definitely possibly and can even be quite easy!
