A couple of weeks ago, I began experimenting with my morning beverage to improve my mood and athletic performance as I was getting back into CrossFit. I chose maca, cordyceps, and mucuna as my adaptogenic powder blend and pea protein milk to complete my muscle matcha latte. Among my elixir’s benefits include improves sexual health and focus, boosts energy and athletic performance, and reduces inflammation and blood pressure. Stress-less is a big mood!
Serving Size1 Cup
About 7 minutes
– 1 cup of plant-based milk (preference flavor: vanilla)
– 1 tbsp of ceremonial-grade matcha
– 1 tsp maca
– 1 tsp cordyceps
– 1 tsp mucuna
Use a built-in automatic frother, a microwave, or a pan (on top of the stove) to heat up a cup of plant-based milk.
Pour half of the warm milk into a drinking cup. Use a hand sifter to sift the dry ingredients into the cup of milk.
Use a handheld rechargeable whisk to blend the milk and dry powders until most (or all) powder particles are gone. Pour the remaining half-a-cup of milk into the cup. Include the froth for a foamstache.
Enjoy at anytime during the day, hot or iced, for a quick lift in energy.
