My Matcha Tonic Recipe For Energy and Beauty

April 1, 2019

I love the flavor of coffee but I’m trying to limit my intake.  I’ve given up coffee before where I only indulged on the weekends, but I almost always go back to it.  Honestly, there is nothing wrong with coffee, except that it increases your cortisol levels and affects your adrenals.  And because I can be sensitive to this, I’ve been swapping out my coffee for matcha tea the past week.

I have been playing around with different ingredients and concoctions in my kitchen to kick it up a notch, and I think I’ve mastered the perfect Matcha tonic.  I call it the Monarch Matcha, haha! And all of the ingredients help you glow from the inside out.  Enjoy!


You can make this in four minutes, and I definitely recommend getting an electric hand whisk.  I use this one from Amazon.  I love it because it blends everything really well.  My Monarch Matcha tastes just like a matcha beverage you get at your local, favorite, fancy coffee shop – but even better.

  • 1 Cup of Almond Cashew milk
  • 1/2 – 1 teaspoon of organic ceremony grade matcha powder. I love this one.
  • 1 teaspoon of coconut oil (you can sub this for Almond, Hazelnut or MCT oil if you don’t like the taste of coconut)
  • 1 scoop of flavorless Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides powder
  • A touch of honey (however little or much you like)

Put the milk in the microwave for about 1:45, whisk and voila!  The perfect matcha tonic to replace your coffee habit.  Try it and please let me know how you like it in the comments.
