Today, I am going to detail a bulletproof matcha latte recipe that will help you add delight to your mood. Well, I get asked all the time “Leanne, what is a super amazing health coach as you drink in the morning?” Actually no, that never happened. But if it did, this would be my answer: ‘Well, I drink a gut healing, tummy-filling, skin smoothing, no sugar, anti-inflammatory, stress-busting, super antioxidant latte that tastes better than Starbucks!’
This drink has been a slow evolution over several years now since I gave up my 2-3 pot of coffee/day habit. I used to really like Starbucks’ matcha latte. But since it’s full of sugar, I have been making my own version. Lately, there has been this big movement toward the buttery Bulletproof coffee or just say matcha latte recipe. So I thought I would experiment with making something similar with my green tea…..and OMG wow!!
Benefits Of Consuming Matcha Latte
I want to briefly list some of the amazing benefits of this drink:
Matcha: Firstly if you have never heard of matcha, it is simply high-quality, shade-grown green tea. It is dried and ground up into a powder to be mixed directly in hot water (rather than tea leaves in a tea bag). It is full of polyphenols and has the highest amount of the antioxidant EGCG of all green teas – by a mile.
Also, it provides a sustained gentle energy boost (rather than a spike – and crash – like coffee). Research shows that it can boost your immune system, help with type-2 diabetes, improve cardiovascular health, detoxify the blood, improve mental alertness, reduce stress and so much more!
Grassfed Ghee: Ghee is simply clarified butter with the milk solids removed. It leaves you with an end product that is free from casein and lactose. That is why it’s generally suitable for those with sensitivities. Ghee contains butyrate, an essential short-chain fatty acid that acts as a detoxifier and improves gut health.
It’s been shown to benefit healthy insulin levels and be helpful for the persons who are suffering from Crohn’s disease, IBS, and ulcerative colitis. It’s a great source of fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E, and K and if using grass-fed ghee you will receive a good dose of CLA which research is suggesting may reduce tumors, cholesterol, inflammation, and blood pressure.
Collagen: Collagen is the most abundant protein found in our bodies; as we age we produce less and less of it, so if we want to keep our insides and outsides working (and looking!) their best, then supplementing with collagen is a must.
It helps your skin look younger, reduces joint pain and degeneration, and helps heal leaky gut and other gastrointestinal disorders. Moreover, it can help increase muscle mass and energy, strengthen hair and nails and also helps improve liver and cardiovascular health.
In addition to all these great health benefits, both the collagen and the ghee contribute to a sense of fullness so in case I don’t have time, or don’t feel like having breakfast, I know that I’m packing in enough nutrients to get me through my morning.

Key Point To Consider For Matcha Latte Recipe
Now depending on whether you have a glass or plastic pitcher for your blender (I have the most amazing stainless one!) will determine how you make your drink since I don’t recommend pouring hot liquids into plastic anything.
If yours is plastic (or holds less than 1.5L). Then simply blend all of your ingredients prior to heating (except maybe your milk if you want to use that to cool it a bit). Besides, if you have a large glass or stainless pitcher then simply boil your water first, and while holding down the lid, carefully blend everything just prior to drinking.
Cheers to your amazing health!!
“Bulletproof” Matcha Latte Recipe Details To Make It
Recipe type: Beverage
Serves: 1-2 servings
INGREDIENTS THAT NEEDED TO MAKE MATCHA LATTE
- 2 c filtered water is necessary for the matcha latte recipe
- 2 tsp good quality pure matcha powder
- 1.5 tbsp grass-fed collagen hydrolysate powder (this is my favorite)
- 2 tsp Frontier non-alcoholic vanilla extract
- 1 tbsp grass-fed ghee (this is the best I’ve found for taste and price)
- ½ c milk of choice
- optional: liquid stevia, to taste
INSTRUCTIONS YOU MUST FOLLOW FOR THE MATCHA LATTE RECIPE
If you have a plastic pitcher on your blender (or your pitcher holds less than 1.5L) :
- Blend all ingredients first (you can leave milk until just before serving if you want to use it to help cool the drink) until frothy. Heat to just barely boiling and serve. It is an important point for matcha latte recipes.
If you have a large glass or stainless steel pitcher:
- Boil water then add to the blender with all remaining ingredients and, while carefully holding down the lid, blend until frothy. Serve the latte that is made using the matcha latte recipe immediately.
Iced matcha lattes are a variant.
What is the most well-liked matcha latte recipe variant? The matcha latte is on ice! This recipe is fairly similar, but it’s much simpler because you don’t have to worry about the texture of the frothed milk. What you should do is:
- To whisk the matcha, use the same directions as in Step 1 below, but use 1 teaspoon matcha and 2 ounces of water.
- Add 1 tablespoon of honey and whisk.
- Add 1/4 cup of oat or skim milk. For an iced latte, low-fat or dairy-free milk works best.
- Serve after adding ice!
That’s all, then! If you try the matcha latte or iced matcha latte, let us know in the comments section what you thought.
