Chocolate lovers and matcha addicts, unite! I happen to be both, yet was skeptical on whether this flavor combination would work. After trying this recipe, I'm at a loss for words...the combination is mind-blowing.
What's extra amazing is that this creamy latte is not only delicious, it's also incredibly healing. Refined sugar free and immune-boosting, the more you drink, the healthier you'll become! Keep reading for the full recipe.
The Healthy, Immune-Boosting Ingredients
Chocomaya Chai: Rich in immunity-boosting herbs like cinnamon, cacao powder, fennel seeds, and ginger, this tea supports your immune system by reducing inflammation.
Ceremonial Grade Matcha: Green tea is loaded with immunity-boosting polyphenols and antioxidants. Green tea might even be able to stop the flu virus from replicating, as shown in this study. What's even better than green tea? Matcha. As the concentrated, powdered form, matcha has all the benefits of green tea, plus more.
Medjool dates: Using dates instead of processed sugar will reduce the blood sugar spike. Spikes in blood sugar can make you more susceptible to getting sick since your immune cells are suppressed for up to 5 hours after consuming sugar.
Let's get to the recipe!
What You Need

*To soak your medjool dates, place them in hot water for 5 minutes. This will allow them to soften and break apart enough to blend easily.
