    Hot Minute Matcha Green Tea Latte

    Kiss your $5 coffee shop matchas goodbye … because after you make this matcha latte at home, you’ll never go back! All you need are five ingredients, hot water and a blender. The genius of this drink lies in blending coconut cream and cashew butter with hot water. When blended, they emulsify and trap micro air bubbles in suspension to create a latte-like foam … without the dairy!
