This Matcha Latte Tastes Exactly Like a Milkshake

This Matcha Latte Tastes Exactly Like a Milkshake


Trade your iced coffee for this tasty drink

The matcha latte at Cafe Urbano packs a lot of caffeine.

Feeling cold-brew fatigue? Start your day with something different — like a mint-green iced latte.

Cafe Urbano, the high-energy Irving Park cafe on the corner of Elston and Avers avenues in Chicago, recently added a matcha latte ($4.25 small, $5 large), advertised on a small whiteboard behind the bar. Lattes made with matcha (finely powdered tea leaves) can be in danger of tasting like "drinking grass," a barista on duty said. To counteract this, matcha makers at Urbano use a sweetened powder from tea company Rishi, which they mix with milk or water. Ask for cinnamon to be sprinkled on top, if you like.


Matcha 101: Benefits, Recipes, and More!

If you've been following me for a while, you know that I loooooooove matcha. You'll see me drinking it every morning on HōmeBodies because it's my pre-workout and all-around life force bahaha.

I used to drink coffee every morning, but I quit over three years ago after doing a clean food challenge. I had gone on a long birthday vacation and had too many indulgences #carbdiet. I had hives all over my body and face, and I knew it was time for a full reset. During this time, I discovered matcha — and quit drinking coffee. Guys, I used to be addicted, and the withdrawal was tough at times, but it was SO WORTH IT.

While coffee would energize me in the mornings, it had a lot of negative effects on my body and even mood. I would often feel bloated, and my stomach always got upset. Later on in the day, I would just completely crash. My energy high would completely disappear, and I would be tired and dehydrated.

If you're experiencing the same side effects from coffee, know that you're not alone — I've been there. But know that there is a substitute that will energize you while giving your body the nutrients it needs — Matcha. And if you've never been a coffee drinker, I still recommend you try it out. It's transformed my mornings, and I've come up with tons of delicious recipes!

In this post, I want to give you some insider's knowledge about matcha, along with some easy recipes you can start using to create the most delicious, healthy matcha concoctions. If you're already a matcha drinker, I'd LOVE to hear about your recipes and how matcha has transformed your life, so don't forget to comment at the end of this post and let me know!!
