Healthy matcha latte recipe with R's KOSO by certified holistic nutritionist Eriko.
Matcha powder is grounded green tea leaves. As you consume the entire tea leaf in a matcha latte, you will get more nutrients than regular green tea.
Matcha contains caffeine which is known as a stimulant. It could reduce fatigue and help you focus. Matcha also contains L-theanine. L-theanine is believed to improve mood and reduce anxiety as it increases the levels of dopamine and serotonin.
L-theanine and caffeine in combination help you improve brain function and mood, and give you long lasting energy.
R's KOSO adds mild sweetness and makes this matcha latte more powerful as you get probiotics, prebiotics, and postbiotics to help improve intestinal health and digestion.
