It's time to break into iced beverage season with a floral green latte that's so spring it almost hurts. Who says the weather has to cooperate? Skip spending $$$ at your local coffee shop and whip up this perky Iced Lavender Matcha Green Tea Latte from Mighty Leaf Tea instead.
Not only does it look pretty, but it's chock-full of health benefits too. ICYMI, matcha is like the next-level version of green tea. It does everything from lower cholesterol and protect against cancer to control blood sugar levels and reduce inflammation. (That doesn't even cover them all. Here, the rest of matcha green tea's health benefits.) And you don't need to drink a zillion lattes to get the matcha boost; you can toss it in coffee, cocktails, pancakes, granola, and all these other genius matcha recipes too.
There's more great news: If you're hooked on lattes with benefits, there are even more options. Next up, try a unicorn latte (yes, that exists, and it has algae in it) or a golden milk latte, which uses the super anti-inflammatory spice turmeric for a healthy punch.
