During the week I received some products from Irish Brand “Nua Naturals” to sample. I’m a big fan of their products and use them in almost all of my raw food recipes, so to receive these goodies was awesome!

I have teamed up with Nua Naturals to give you guys a 15% discount on their website. To avail of this offer use the promo code: PIGGY15

One of the products I received was the new Cacao Matcha Latte. I know know some people struggle with matcha tea as it is very strong and bitter compared to regular green tea. This latte might be a good starting point as the taste is toned down with the added cacao and natural flavourings.

Ingredients:

  • 1 tbsp Nua Naturals cacao matcha latte
  • 250ml almond milk
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp raw cacao
  • 1 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/4 tsp peppermint oil
  • Pinch of cinnamon

Method:

1. Using a whisk, mix the matcha powder with 20ml hot water (not boiling) to make a paste. Heat the almond milk over a medium heat, and when it’s warm mix in the matcha paste.

2. Transfer the mixture to a blender and add the rest of the ingredients. Blend for 20 seconds until frothy. Top with some cacao powder/nibs and serve immediately. Enjoy!
