If you are into taking better care of your body, but haven't made a full matcha commitment yet, it is likely that you have heard of the health phenomenon of bulletproof coffee. By incorporating coconut oil and natural butter into a cup of coffee, it not only provides you with the healthy fats that your body needs, but it rejuvenates you so much that it makes you feel absolutely bulletproof.
Unfortunately, even bulletproof coffee has nothing on matcha green tea powder. With high levels of antioxidants, L-theanine amino acids, and natural fibre, coffee can't keep up. Yet, if you really buy into the benefits of the bulletproof craze, can you actually do the same to matcha?
The answer is yes. Aside from being different in everything from flavour to health benefits, coffee and matcha are not all that different on a molecular level. Unfortunately, when adding fat into matcha, you need a little more horsepower than the average whisk can provide. In order to get that same matcha frothiness, imbibers will want to consider making their morning bulletproof matcha in a blender instead. You can also use a shaker, but be careful of steam build-up. It can cause the shaker top to be forced open and burning hot matcha to go places you don't want it to.
For the ratio of matcha to healthy fats, one teaspoon of matcha and the corresponding one cup of water should come with one tablespoon each of coconut oil and grass-fed butter. As for what type of matcha green tea powder to use, it should, as always, be of the highest quality for the maximum effect on your body. Mista Matcha can provide the matcha powder as well as the healthiest ways to use it.
