An easy, midday pick me up this matcha latte recipe is made with a burst of energy! Curling up with a cup of matcha latte is enough to give you a pick me up but this matcha latte is creamy and decadent to give you some extra comfort!
Truth be told, I avoided matcha lattes for a long time. I loved them in coffee shops but only because they were so sugar-loaded it was crazy.
I loved matcha in smoothies or energy bars but definitely not to drink. Mainly, I appreciated the benefits of matcha green tea but it wasn’t my thing.
But finally, I came up with a matcha latte recipe I not only love but one that gives just a teeny bit more energy than normal.

Benefits Of Matcha Green Tea
By now I’m sure you’ve heard about the health craze that is Matcha Green tea and all of the benefits of matcha tea.
It’s been around for years but it’s gained a lot of popularity in the last ten or so. Matcha has been said to help or be:
- Increase energy
- Boost metabolism
- Reduce heart disease risk
- Loaded with vitamins
- Boost the immune system
- Contains fiber
With all of those benefits, why wouldn’t you want to grab a matcha latte?
What Does Matcha Taste Like
This is what stopped me initially when it comes to a matcha latte recipe. By itself, I find matcha green tea to be slightly bitter. I adore tea (tea has so many health benefits on its own) but found that unless it was loaded with a sugar shot I didn’t enjoy it.
This matcha latte recipe is the perfect combination of health-boosting ingredients and flavor. It’s simple (only four ingredients + water) and truly is a comfort for me when I hit the midday slump.
Energy Boosting Matcha Latte Recipe
While all matcha tea has been said to give an energy boost, this particular matcha latte recipe takes it one step further.
Four Sigmatics matcha is also combined with lions mane! Lions mane comes with its own awesome health benefits but I use it the most for focus. It’s part of my routine when I need to sit down and truly get creative without distractions and coffee with lions mane and Chaga is a lifesaver.
You won’t taste the lion’s mane at all and in fact, you can read more here about taste, flavor, and favorites.
In this case, though, the added lions mane helps this matcha latte recipe not only energize you but focus too! Which is why it is literally a perfect mid-day indulgence.
I grab my matcha from Four Sigmatics and you can use code MAMABEAR to save yourself some money.
When To Use This Matcha Latte Recipe
Well, that’s the best part… it’s up to you!
Personally, I use this homemade matcha latte more during the afternoon when I need to get my sh*t together and get some work done.
I find the combo of coconut milk + honey comforting and so I can curl up with a cup, settle in and work.
However, I know most mamas need a pick my up mid-morning (probably because we’ve been up since before dawn) which is also a great time to get a burst of energy.
Ingredients In The Creamy Latte Recipe
- 1/8 cup coconut cream (+ more for froth if possible)
- 1 tsp Four Sigmatics matcha powder
