Almond Milk Matcha-Moringa Iced Latte

Almond Milk Matcha-Moringa Iced Latte

Do you like Matcha? I just love Matcha Lattes, cold or hot. I wanted to post this recipe for a long time. I even bought these beige (very Instagram hip) cups for this to take pictures for Matcha Latte… I know what you are thinking, “that’s totally unnecessary”, but I just couldn’t help myself. Sometimes I get stuff just for those purposes. My shelves are filled with unnecessary props, but again, I can’t help myself. It’s my job and I never know what I will need. 

 

So the other day I went shopping with my girl, Anna, who by the way loves Starbucks double chocolate chip frappe. – Nothing to do with this gem, but I just had to include that sentence for some reason. Anyhow, she suggested Starbucks just to cool off and chill for a moment. I rarely get coffee out; I get it either when I am busy and on the road or if I go out with a friend. I just like making my own coffee at home.

 

I wasn’t craving coffee so naturally, I would get something like matcha frappe or iced latte, which is super easy to make at home, as you can tell. I made a little video with my iPhone how I personally like my Matcha Latte. Since I had this amazingly nutritious Moringa powder I added that as well. I just love it! By the way, this post totally came randomly.

I just finished editing my video which I posted on Youtube. I know… it is shocking! I took a little over a year off from Youtube so this is technically my first video after that long break. Anyhow, I hope you guys like itYou can watch it HERE (my Youtube channel) 

LUNA

Now I am completing this post with two of my fur babies who just love walking accross my laptop keyboard especialy when I type. I don’t know if you know, but we have two kitties. Luna, a year old tabby, and Nala, 4-month-old Chantilly Tiffany. 

I just love them to pieces… all of us loved them but they only listen to me. Well, I feed them and clean their poop after-all hahaha Jokes on the side, I guess I am here all the time so I have the privilege to do all that for my queens. 

NALA

 

So to cut the story short, I hope you guys make this delicious iced latte. It is one my favorites cold or warm, during summer or winter. Just by replacing cold milk you can totally add warm milk and make a nice hot beverage during those cold winter days.

Turmeric Golden Milk

Turmeric Golden Milk

I might be a bit late in the Turmeric Golden Milk posting game, but I have been drinking this one for a few years now.

Well, I must humbly confess, I do not drink it very often. Nevertheless, when I feel sluggish or need some extra boost, this beverage truly works its magic.

This Indian native warm and cozy beverage is full of marvelous health properties or nutritional benefits to heal your body and soul.

I would recommend one mug before going to bed for the peaceful, anxiety-free, goodnight sleep.

Turmeric Golden Milk

The taste is strong, but not as spicy as you would perhaps expect. It is remarkably relaxing!

With the freezing winter nearing, and in many states and countries already here, this golden tea is a necessity.

To me personally, there is nothing more calming than a cup of hot tea, blanket wrapped around me while I read a good book. Though it may seem strange, that would be my ideal evening.

I collect delicious teas so making my blend is a valuable blessing to me. Naturally, you could mix it to your liking.

Turmeric Golden Milk

Some might find it too strong therefore add slightly less of this and a bit more of that until you achieve what your taste buds like the most.

Why should you drink Golden Milk?

Well, first of all, Golden milk’s ingredients, which are ginger, cinnamon, and turmeric, contain anti-inflammatory properties. So it is absolutely amazing for you.

Also, you must add black pepper. Turmeric combined with black pepper, each has health benefits, due to the compounds curcumin and piperine, increases the absorption of curcumin by up to 2000%.

Cookies ‘n’ Cream Ice-Cream Recipe

Cookies ‘n’ Cream Ice-Cream Recipe

 

 

I have been on an ice-cream kick lately… to correct myself, on “homemade” ice-cream kick. It is just so easy to make your own, not cheap at all just to warn you guys, but you can definitely taste the difference between homemade and store-bought ice cream.

I don’t know how to explain, it tastes much richer and creamier, and I don’t even have to tell you that you know what you adding in your own ice cream so you can get whatever you would like in it.

We have made so many ice creams in the last few weeks, and we loved each every one of the flavors, so I am sharing one by one. Of course, you can make ice cream without ice cream maker or machine but if you have a machine why would you make without it.

Of course, you can make ice cream without ice cream maker or machine but if you have a machine why would you make without it.
I just don’t know why I waited so long to get one. Like I said, it’s not cheap but my family and I have been enjoying this homemade deliciousness very much.

I googled what is number one ice cream in the USA, and believe it or not, Cookies ‘n’ Cream popped as numero uno. To tell you honestly, I was a bit shocked and totally expected something like the chocolate chip or even plain vanilla or chocolate, but nope, it is Cookies ‘n’ Cream.

I am planning to share many more homemade ice creams with you so stay tuned for berry ice cream, matcha, tropical ice cream, chocolate and, of course, the chocolate chip that I just made last night and LOVEEEED it!! 

 

 

I gotta tell ya, it was delightful. It is definitely creamy, but it got that bite from cookies although it is not overly sweet at all. I read recipes from instructions and so many calls for 2 cups of sugar.

YES!!! 2 cups! I find it a bit too sweet considering that we are adding cookies as well so I use only one cup of sugar for my base on this amount of liquid.
