Recipe: Chai Green Tea Latte with Whipped Coconut Cream

This drink recipe is zen in a mug!

Antioxidant-rich green tea blends with chai spices and creamy coconut for a healthy, soothing drink. Top it with a cloud of whipped coconut cream and a dash of green matcha powder for a real showstopper.

Even better than how it tastes is what it does for your body! Green tea has a long list of proven health benefits, from boosting your metabolism to helping fight inflammation and risk of disease. (Check out this blog for all the details: 5 Ways Green Tea Helps You Lose Weight & Feel Healthy…)

The key to a super-healthy green tea latte is high-quality tea. I love Pique Tea, especially their Sungoddess Matcha. It comes in the cutest little packs they call “matcha sticks” – and it's crystallized, so there's no need for brewing.

But what really sets apart this green tea is its incredible quality. It's the world's purest matcha, quadruple screened for radioactive isotopes, heavy metals, mold, and pesticides. (If you never thought to question whether those things were in your tea, you'll understand what makes Pique Tea so exceptional!)

If you're not obsessed with matcha yet, you will be after you taste this amazing tea. Altogether, this drink is a cozy combination that tastes wonderful and can boost everything from your immune system to your brain function. Great flavor and great health benefits!
