700 Rep Workout & Green Tea Latte

I wrote a while back about why I gave up coffee.
It was a rather seamless transition for me. I really couldn't believe it. I was expecting two year old temper tantrums, mind pounding headaches, and days of passing out at my computer while verifying prescriptions.

I didn't have any of that. I did start drinking tea lots and lots of tea. I discovered I love Earl Gray and green tea. Did you know the Bigelow Tea Company makes and Earl Grey green tea?! It is wonderful; combining the best of both worlds! I have been drinking matcha green tea lattes several mornings a week when I have an extra minute to froth the milk.

Green Tea Latte

1 cup of hot water
1 tsp of green tea matcha poweder
liquid stevia or honey to taste
1/4 cup of warmed unsweetened amlond milk frothed ( I use my aerolatte)
Combine water, tea, and sweetener in mug. Top with foamed almond milk. Serves 1.
