Looking for a healthy, dairy-free matcha latte recipe that you can make at home? You'll be jumping for joy (JOI!) with our spiced vanilla latte recipe.

Cozy up with Matcha
Change kind of sucks—including the change of seasons. This time of year is a horrible in-between when the warm weather and fall colors are long gone, but there’s still a ways to go before the holiday excitement and (for those of you not on the beach in Miami with us) actual winter activities.
Basically, cabin fever is hitting, especially in social distanced 2020.
We can’t get you out of the house, but we can help you cozy up on the couch with our Spiced Vanilla Matcha Latte (or power through your work from home afternoon). Whether it's served hot or cold, it will be the perfect treat! Vegan lattes at home, it's what we do.
This Matcha Latte is Healthy for You
This secretly healthy treat will help you enjoy all the free-radical-fighting, brain-boosting, cancer-preventing, and heart-supporting benefits of matcha.
You also get the creaminess, protein, fiber and healthy fats of JOI almond or cashew plant base. Plus the just-sweet-enough combination of vanilla and cinnamon, which is packed with health benefits!
Plus, matcha supports weight management and gives you a light caffeine perk to fuel some really satisfying Netflix binging (or actual productivity).
