CBD Matcha Mocha Latte Is Your Go-to Healthy Pick-me-up

You love the calming effects of CBD, and you love healthy drinks, so why not combine the two? CBD Matcha Mocha Latte is a delicious and easy-to-make drink that combines healthy, lightly-caffeinated matcha green tea, calming cannabidiol (CBD), and antioxidants from cocoa powder. It’s a wholesome way to start your day!

In this post, we’ll share with you how to craft a CBD Matcha Mocha Latte. First, let’s talk a bit about the beneficial qualities of each main ingredient below.

Benefits Of Matcha Green Tea

Matcha green tea is a type of fine, powdered Japanese green tea. Loaded with antioxidants, these compounds in matcha are beneficial for physical and mental wellness by protecting against cell damage caused by free radicals. Matcha green tea may help improve your mood, boost immune system function, aid in weight loss efforts, lower cholesterol levels, and reduce heart disease or stroke risk.

Health Benefits Of Cocoa Powder

Cocoa powder is naturally derived from the seeds of cocoa beans. You can use the antioxidant-rich powder to make chocolate or mocha for coffee and other drinks. In addition, cocoa has been linked to helping reduce stress and depression levels through its natural tryptophan content. Another benefit of adding cocoa to CBD latte? It contains polyphenols, which may improve blood flow to the brain and potentially ward off neurodegenerative diseases.

How CBD Fits In

CBD is a compound found in the cannabis Sativa plant that has potentially significant medical benefits for your body. For example, CBD may help reduce pain, anxiety, and depression levels without making you feel “high” like THC (which is another cannabinoid). CBD may also have anti-inflammatory properties as well as nervous system soothing effects to promote relaxation.

Feeling In The Mood For CBD Matcha Mocha Latte?

List Of Ingredients

  • 1 dropper full of Danu Mellow Mint CBD Oil Tincture
  • 1/2 tbsp of honey for sweetness
  • 1 tsp of high-quality matcha powder
  • 1 tsp of organic cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup of milk (or a rich and creamy milk alternative of your choice)
  • 1 cup of near-boiling water

How To Prepare Your CBD Matcha Mocha Latte

Combine all of the above-listed ingredients into a blender and run it at a regular or medium speed for roughly 12 seconds. Once you’ve done that, check to ensure the mixture is reasonably frothy. If need be, you can add extra honey for sweetness or even a bit of coconut oil to make it more bubbly!

The last step will be to lightly garnish your delicious newly completed drink! With your hand or a fine mesh strainer, lightly shake or sprinkle a bit of cocoa powder on top, followed by a bit more matcha powder. This will give your new healthy drink a colorful and fun look while providing even a bit more nutrients than it already contains!
