Best Raw Food Recipes: Iced Mocha Latte
Last summer Amy came up with the matcha latte that we had here at HQ on a daily basis. It’s the perfect cooling drink for hot summer days.
And it’s perky too!
This summer I added the coconut oil and hemp seed, which makes it really creamy, not to mention turbo charges the nutrition.
I used Bulletproof coconut oil as it’s liquid even at cold temperatures, whereas the regular coconut oil you may already have can get a bit clumpy when it’s cold. But if you’ve got a really strong blender, you’ll be fine with either.
You can adjust the amount of matcha here to suits your tastes, and what you’re used to, if it’s too much zing for you.
Have a play with it.
If you don’t have a really strong blender, or if you overdo the ice a bit, you’ll get an icy slushy top to it, which actually, I really like.
