This is just a quick post for all your matcha lovers out there. For those of you that are not familiar with matcha, check my post here. I’ve been craving lemongrass lately and thought I would try making a drink with just a drop of pure lemongrass essential oil* since I didn’t have any on hand and it’s not that easy to find where I live. So I thought a combination of the lemongrass and some fresh ginger along with my coconut oil would be a delicious combination for my morning matcha….and it was!
Here’s the lemongrass ginger coconut matcha recipe in a nutshell
- 8-10 oz boiling water
- 1 drop of PURE lemongrass essential oil
- 2 teaspoons of coconut oil
- 1 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
- 1/2 -1 teaspoon of matcha tea
- sweetener to taste (I used some stevia)
Put everything in a high speed blend and whiz on high for a minute. Pour and drink in the aromatics in this drink and reap the health benefits! Note: If you don’t have any PURE lemongrass essential oil you could always steep a piece of lemongrass in the water and use that instead. Make sure to take the lemongrass out of the water after you’ve steeped it.
Hope you enjoy! I get my matcha from Steeped Tea which if you are interested you can buy from my friend Debbie here. She also has a Facebook matcha challenge (which I am doing) so check out her page here.
