A superfood duo, maca and matcha make a latte unlike any other! What are these mysterious ingredients? Maca is the powdered root of a South American plant, said to have fueled the endless energy of ancient Incan warriors and prized today for its exceptional nutrient profile, which includes protein, minerals and more. Matcha is a type of Japanese green tea preferred for its potency–up to 10 times the antioxidant powder of ordinary teas! This recipe combines the two in a foamy drink to start your morning strong.
