Ginger Lemon Matcha Latte

Ginger Lemon Matcha Latte

Happy Friday Lovelies!

 

Can you believe it’s August already? Where did the summer go? I am going to miss those summer days, but part of me is getting really excited for fall. Football, hearty recipes, everything pumpkin, I could go on for days. There is something about that cool crisp air that makes me feel so cozy. Anyways, I won’t get ahead of myself just yet because we are still in the full swing of summer and in need of delicious drinks to cool us off.

 

 

I am teaming up with nutpods to bring you an amazing GIVEAWAY! I was introduced to nutpods during my last round of Whole30 and immediately fell in love with their product. They provide dairy-free creamers which are free from Carrageenan, Dairy, Soy, Gluten, High-Fructose Corn Syrup, Refined Sugars & Sugar Alcohols. This can be extremely hard to find in store bought dairy-free beverages so in the past I was forced to make my own. I absolutely love being able to keep nutpods on hand now because it is a product I can finally trust. nutpods dairy-free creamers are extremely versatile and can be used as a traditional creamer or even in cooking/baking. Their website has an amazing recipe tab to showcase just how many ways you can use their products. I typically use nutpods in my morning coffee, but I am excited to make one of the recipes on their website.


 

 

Today I am bringing you my go-to weekend morning drink. I love to ditch the coffee on the weekends and go for a matcha latte instead. My absolute favorite weekend activity is sitting on my porch with this refreshing latte and just taking a breather. During the week I feel like my mind moves so quickly so I relish in the opportunities I have to slow down. Ginger and lemon are two powerful ingredients I turn to to keep my body balanced daily as well as when I am feeling under the weather. This mixed with the creaminess of the nutpods French Vanilla unsweetened and earthiness of the matcha powder make one incredible drink.
