I feel so blessed to be able to stay home with my kids. I couldn’t imagine my life being any different and I’m grateful for it.

However, sometimes the days can seem long. And come nap time at 2 pm after a day of homeschool, grocery shopping, disciplining, playing and cooking I usually need of a pick-me-up.

This collagen matcha latte is a go-to for me on the afternoons when I need some fuel to motivate me to keep on keeping on and doing the rest of the necessary tasks for the day, like making dinner.

It’s low-calorie, high-protein, and easy to make with 4 ingredients in 3 minutes. And of course it’s delicious, and the matcha provides a little dose of caffeine for an afternoon energy boost!

How to make a Matcha Latte

Could a recipe BE any easier? (for inflection watch this clip and thank me later…). Simply pour the ingredients into a Vitamix, blend, wait two minutes and drink.

You can also make it on the stovetop if you prefer. Just whisk the ingredients together in a saucepan and cook over medium heat and until warm, then serve.

Collagen Matcha Latte Recipe: Substitutions 

There are only 4 ingredients in this recipe, but here are a few possible ways to switch things up:

  • Non-dairy milk: My favorite option for this recipe is a Coconut/Almond Milk blend. It keeps the drink low-calorie but the coconut milk imparts a rich and delicious flavor! I also have used lite canned coconut milk and regular old almond milk.
  • Honey. Raw honey is my favorite way to sweeten this drink. You can omit it if you like your lattes unsweetened! Maple syrup is another great option.

1 or 2 scoops of collagen?

 This Collagen Matcha Latte can be made with 1 or 2 scoops of collagen protein powder. I typically opt for 1 because I like it that way! The powder is flavorless so the amount does not impact the taste at all. The only thing that changes is the frothiness. If you use 2 scoops your latte will be very frothy.

Note: I use this organic collagen in my smoothies, coffee, etc. for extra protein on a daily basis.
