Mommy Indulgences and Stylish Blogger Awards!!

Sometimes my life is like a whirlwind….it seems I am always busy.

You see, I have these 2 small people in my life that always seem to need something!!

It’s a good thing they’re cute!!! 🙂

AND

I wouldn’t trade my life for any other…but it does get crazy busy most days!!

Once in awhile, I need a good indulgence……something easy, something sweet, something that feels like I’m indulging in something sinful……

chocolatey…..

fruity…..

frothy….

Creamy…..

Need I say more!!!

One of my favorite treats is a Matcha Latte!!

I use unsweetened coconut milk, *matcha tea, stevia, vanilla, and ice!!

Blend this up and enjoy!!!!

Sometimes I like to add in some protein powder too!!

*Matcha tea is a powder that is made from blended up green tea leaves-it boasts to be 10 times more potent than regular brewed green tea.  Matcha contains about 70 times the antioxidants of orange juice and 9 times the beta-carotene of spinach.

Here are some other things that it is good for:

  • – Raise your energy level for up to 8 hours with no negative side effects
  • – Induce a state of relaxation and calm mental alertness
  • – Boost metabolism by up to 40% in regular consumers and help control body weight
  • – Contain up to 137 times more of the potent antioxidant EGCG than steeped green tea
  • – Help regulate healthy blood sugar levels
  • – Support healthy cholesterol levels within a normal range
  • – Act as a strong blood detoxifier and alkalizer
  • – Support healthy teeth and gums

Yes, these are some of my mommy indulgences….

however,

I always seem to have to share!!!  🙂

  1. Woohoo! Thanks so much for the award! 😀
    Sidenote: I have never had matcha tea, can you believe that? But your matcha latte sounds amazing! I’ve always balked at the price, but I may have to pick some up now.

    • The matcha tea is really expensive if you buy it from a company….I just found out that my health food store carries it in their bulk herb section and I can buy it so much cheaper!!!! Maybe check to see if your local health food store has it that way!!

    • I don’t know if all Matcha tea is sold loose or if some come in bags…..I would assume it is all sold the same. I would like to see the Matcha from Costco though!!

  2. Thanks so much for the award! That is great fun. I so love your post here about your favorite drinks. I do matcha tea quite a bit. I used to work in a health food store and it was very popular. You can buy the first harvest or the 2nd harvest which is cheaper.

    I love your frothy drink. It looks great. How do you froth yours?

    • Wow, I never knew about the first or second harvest….that’s a good thing to know!!!
      I just used my Vita Mix to get that drink frothy….I have also used a small whisk too!!
