Immune & Energy-Boosting Matcha Drink
Is it even possible to make Matcha more healthy? YES!
My perfect afternoon pick-me-up is a vibrant Matcha blend with the addition of detoxifying apple cider vinegar and immune-boosting fresh ginger with a couple of drops of stevia.
It's a boost of antioxidants, energy, and good health to carry you through that afternoon slump.
Elissa's Matcha Magic Tonic
- 1-2 teaspoons high-quality organic Matcha powder (I recommend DoMatcha or Kenko
- 10 oz. filtered water
- 1-2 inches fresh ginger, juiced (or use a high-quality ginger powder)
- 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
- 1 tablespoon fresh juiced lemon
- 1 cup ice
- 4-5 drops organic stevia (I recommend Body Ecology Stevia)
- Shaker or bamboo whisk (optional)
1. Put all ingredients into a shaker, shake well, and pour over ice. If you don't have a shaker, whisk Matcha into filtered water; add ginger, lemon, and apple cider vinegar; stir vigorously, and pour over ice.
2. Sweeten with a couple of drops of organic stevia. Matcha will naturally separate over time; if that happens simply stir to re-blend.
