Green Tea Matcha Collagen Latte

In a previous post, I shared with you all my review on a new protein powder I recently tried, ‘Naked Whey’. The verdict was that I loved it and would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a high quality whey protein powder.  You can read the full post here on all of the reasons why I would recommend it including what to look for in a protein supplement so that you don’t waste your money!

While I love ‘Naked Whey’ for the creaminess and added protein boost that it gives my smoothies, it is not as versatile as one of my other absolute FAVORITE protein supplements, Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides.

Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body. It ensures the cohesion, elasticity and regeneration of all of our connective tissues including our skin, tendons, ligaments, cartilage and even our bones. It also helps provide structure to our hair and nails.

Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides is more of a daily supplement for me for all of the wonderful health benefits that it provides. What makes it so versatile is the fact that it dissolves in both cold AND hot liquids. This makes it super easy to add to your morning coffee or tea, which I personally do pretty much every morning! Whey protein will not dissolve into hot liquids due to its chemical structure making it a better option for a protein boost to smoothies or post workout drinks.

I wrote a whole post on the benefits of collagen here if you’re interested in learning more so I won’t go into all those details in this post.

I personally have used Vital Proteins unflavored collagen peptides for a couple of years now and LOVE it. However, they recently rolled out a new product that I am so excited to share with you all! They have combined the numerous health benefits of collagen with the antioxidant powerhouse, matcha green tea to make matcha collagen.

Vital Proteins Matcha Collagen 3

The matcha green tea used in this product is sourced from the Nishio, Aichi, Kyoto regions of Japan and is one of the highest quality food grade matcha’s available, making this a true superfood when combined with collagen.

You can read more on the health benefits of this superfood in a post on Vital Proteins site here.

If you’re a fan of green tea matcha latte’s like I am, I think you will enjoy my personal FAVORITE way to use matcha collagen below.

Ingredients:

  • 1 scoop Vital Proteins Matcha Collagen
  • 1/4 cup filtered hot water
  • 1 cup choice of milk (I personally use unsweetened almond milk)
  • 1 heaping teaspoon of grass-fed butter
  • 1-3 teaspoons 100% pure maple syrup depending on desired sweetness

Instructions:

  1. Boil filtered water in a tea pot over the stove, then pour 1/4 cup of the boiling water over 1 scoop of Vital Proteins Matcha Collagen in a cup. Stir to combine well with a fork.
  2. In a separate pot over the stove, warm the milk, butter and maple syrup over medium high heat until it starts to slightly boil.
  3. Pour the matcha mixture into the pot and stir to combine with the milk mixture.
  4. In order to froth your drink, you will now need to either pour everything into a blender and pulse for 10-20 seconds or, pour back into your coffee mug and use a frother until you see a nice foamy texture appear. This step is definitely necessary for a coffee shop worthy drink in the comfort of your own home!
  5. Enjoy!
