How to Make the Perfect Bulletproof Matcha Latte

Have you tried matcha?

Matcha is a type of super-potent green tea that’s especially high in antioxidants and fat-soluble nootropic compounds. It also has a richer flavor than normal green tea…which makes it perfect for blending with coconut milk (or grass-fed butter and Brain Octane Oil).

If you’re looking for yet another way to get your daily dose of quality fat and antioxidants, or if you just want a coffee alternative to mix things up, you’ll love this Bulletproof Matcha Latte.

 

Matcha: shade-grown for maximum potency

The major difference between matcha and normal green tea comes down to sun exposure. Matcha is grown in the shade for the three weeks before it’s harvested. UV light inhibits precious compounds in tea (and coffee, for that matter; that’s why Bulletproof Coffee Beans are shade-grown too). Those 3 weeks of protection from the sun leave matcha with much higher antioxidant content than normal green tea.

Matcha is also higher in caffeine, as well as theanine, a relaxing compound that tempers the caffeine. Caffeine and theanine have a nootropic effect when you combine them – together, they promote calm alertness, as well as mental endurance, short-term memory, and faster reaction time [1]. That could explain why matcha has been a favorite of Zen monks for centuries.

Plus, matcha is a striking emerald green color. It’s an appealing way to start your morning.

Mellow out with a Bulletproof Matcha Latte

This matcha latte is great for mornings when you don’t want the full stimulatory effect of Bulletproof Coffee. Enjoy.

Ingredients:

Directions:

  1. In a small saucepan, bring the coconut milk to a boil over medium-high heat, and then immediately remove from the heat.
  2. Mix the hot water and matcha tea powder together in a cup.
  3. In a blender, combine the tea, coconut milk, and vanilla powder. Cover the blender lid with a cloth (in case the lid leaks) and blend until you have a creamy consistency with a layer of foam on top.
  4. (optional) Add the protein powder and lightly blend until the protein is mixed in. Sweeten to taste. Enjoy!

 

Of course, if you’re more of a coffee person, you can always go for a classic Bulletproof Coffee. And for more tasty Bulletproof recipes, check out this simple 7-day meal plan. Thanks for reading and have a great week!

    This is a great article and matcha makes an amazing Bulletproof blend. I find no need to add stevia nor vanilla … but protein is an excellent choice. I use vanilla whey (grass fed). I posted a self-made video about it on Facebook prior to this article, just yesterday! Must be a universal Bulletproof vibe! =D

    I have a simpler method but find it to be tasty. I had Whole Foods make one for me a couple weeks ago and had them add Bulletproof Collagen protein for the first time and it was a sterling drink.

    Cheers!

  • Matcha lattes are my favorite (and essentially the ONLY) caffeinated beverage on my list.

    In my recipe, I use maple syrup instead of stevia/xylitol and add cinnamon. So good. So, so good.

      Sugar is sugar, though. Better to avoid, spikes blood sugar.

    This is a very timely article. I started making Bulletproof Matcha last week. I was originally excited by the post, but then saw that the “Bulletproof Matcha Latte” was quite different that the simple Bulletproof Matcha that I make – essentially bulletproof coffee, just switching the coffee out for Matcha.
    I like the idea of adding the collagen though. I put the collagen, with matcha and coconut oil into a much more complicated warm smoothie with hemp, chia, carob, greens, etc.
    Thanks for posting. I have shared my Bulletproof Matcha with my colleagues and they are amazed at the calm focused mind that results. I’m on a mission to grow the bulletproof tribe!

    Is the coconut milk the kind that comes in a 13.5-oz can, or is it the coconut milk beverage that comes in a half-gallon carton from the dairy section?

    • I’m also curious about the kind of coconut milk… there are so many options.

    • Roberta LaBrecque

      My exact question also, I hope Bulletproof answers!

    • jayarmstrong

      I’d recommend the canned version. It’s much thicker, so you need less of it to get the same consistency of a Latte. The cartoned version adds filtered water and staibilizers (and some add sugar) as I understand.

    • Either, as long as you check the label for added sugar. The canned stuff is usually pure coconut milk (be sure you don’t get the “light” version – you want all that fat!). The carton is sometimes pure, sometimes a “coconut milk beverage” with sugar and other crap added.
