Spiced Vanilla Matcha Iced Latte Made with JOI and Oster Blend Active is the At-Home Boost You’ve Been Looking For
This is part of our "On The Go" series with our partner Oster Blend Active portable blenders
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).
This secretly healthy treat will help you enjoy all the free-radical-fighting, brain-boosting, cancer-preventing, and heart-supporting benefits of matcha, with the creaminess of JOI almond or cashew plant base and just-sweet-enough combo of vanilla and cinnamon. Plus, matcha supports weight management and gives you a light caffeine perk to fuel some really satisfying Netflix binging (or actual productivity). And, with a handy personal blender like our favorite Oster Blend Active Rechargeable Portable Blender, making this iced latte will hardly interfere with your relaxing (or Zoom calls).
Ready to grab your comfy clothes and blanket and stay in for the day? Here’s the recipe for our Spiced Vanilla Matcha Latte:
8 oz (1cup) of cold water
2 Tablespoons JOI plant base (almond or cashew)
¼ to ½ teaspoon vanilla extract, to taste
Pinch of cinnamon
Pinch of salt
Sweetener of choice, if desired (try ½ teaspoon date or maple syrup to start)
