I absolutely adore staying home with my kids. I couldn’t imagine my life being any different, and I love that I get to experience every magical moment of their sweet little lives.

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’m in serious need of a pick-me-up.

This Collagen Matcha Latte has become 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, {read: make dinner}.

It’s low-calorie, high-protein, easy to make {we’re taking 4 ingredients & 3 minutes people} and {of course} really yummy! Plus the matcha delivers a little dose of caffeine for an afternoon energy boost!

I usually don’t post caloric/nutritional information because I never have {and never will} count calories. However, the stats on this Collagen Matcha Latte are so amazing that I had to take a pause and mention them here:

Collagen Matcha Latte: Method

Could a recipe BE any easier?! {for inflection watch this clip and thank me later…}. Literally pour the ingredients into your Vitamix, blend, wait two minutes and drink.

There’s no stove or boiling water or any other fancy methods required because the Vitamix is such a powerhouse that it gets the latte all warm and steamy {see pic above} all on its own. You just stand there and watch while your latte is made. Oh the beauty of simplicity!

1 or 2 scoops?! This Collagen Matcha Latte can be made with 1 or 2 scoops of collagen protein powder. I typically opt for 1 because I just 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 get ready for a super frothy {but still irresistibly yummy} latte!

Collagen Matcha Latte: 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 was this Coconut/Almond Milk blend. It keeps the drink low-calorie but the coconut milk imparts a rich and delicious flavor! I also thoroughly enjoyed using lite canned coconut milk and regular old almond milk! Just be sure to use unsweetened varieties to keep the refined sugar out of this recipe!

Honey: Raw honey is my favorite way to sweeten this drink. You absolutely can omit it if you like your lattes unsweetened! Maple syrup is another great option!

That’s it! I don’t recommend omitting the Collagen or Matcha {because hello then it wouldn’t be a Collagen Matcha Latte}!
