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!

Paleo Chocolate Almond Butter Collagen Fat Bombs

I’m not much of a snacker. I like to eat 3 solid meals each day, and make them big enough so I don’t get hungry in between them. I don’t eat a ketogenic diet, but I do like to keep it lower in carbs and higher in fat and protein because that’s what makes me feel great. I used to have a blood sugar imbalance back in the days when I used to eat a super high sugar diet, so healing myself through quality fats and protein has made such a huge difference in my health.

While I try to avoid desserts and I don’t even crave them anymore ever since overhauling my diet, I do like a piece chocolate once in a while after a meal. My favorite go-to has been these Chocolate Almond Butter Collagen Fat Bombs that are sugar free but chock full of healthy fats and protein!

I recently discovered Perfect Supplements because they reached out to me and asked if I would like to try their products. After looking at how cleanly they source their supplements, and how much they care about the environment and the workers behind their ingredients (all their products are Fair Trade!), I had to say yes!

One of my favorite products I’ve tried so far is their Hydrolyzed Collagen from grass-fed pasture-raised cows. I’ve been putting it in my coffee every morning, hot or iced, and it dissolves easily into liquids so you can add them easily to recipes like these fat bombs. You can’t tast them and I love that I’m getting high-quality protein (literally, the only ingredient in it is Hydrolyzed Collagen!). My hair and nails have been growing like crazy ever since I started taking collagen.

Some other health benefits of collagen:

  • Improve Skin Health
  • Promote Younger, Firmer Skin
  • Support Joint Health
  • Improve Gut Function and Digestion
  • Keep Excess Inflammation in Check
  • Build and Restore Muscle
  • Support a Healthy Metabolism
  • Keep Appetite In Check
  • Promote Healthy Brain Function
  • Promote Deeper Sleep

I’ve definitely been seeing some great results from it, and anyone can benefit from addition of high-quality collagen so I highly recommend you check out Perfect SupplementsHydrolyzed Collagen.
