Cold-Pressed Matcha Almond Mylk


This is my spectacular dairy-free milk recipe from my cookbook Purely Delicious as well as The Healthy Chef Recipe App.  I’ve added 2 teaspoons of Healthy Chef Matcha that helps boost antioxidants and provides all day sustained energy. I enjoy it just as a refreshing drink, blend into power smoothies or gently heated, for the yummiest matcha latte you’ve ever tasted!


This delicious milk was designed to make your body strong and beautiful inside and out. Rich in protein and antioxidants that will help nourish healthy hair and glowing skin. Ceremonial Grade Organic Matcha Tea is the champaign of green tea. One bowl of matcha tea is equivalent to 10 cups of green tea – it’s a powerful, green tonic to revitalize the body and mind. 

Matcha is particularly rich in Catechins, a powerful flavonoid shown to have antioxidant, anti-cancer and heart protective properties. It also contains high levels of L-theanine, a unique blend of amino acid, to help reduce stress and anxiety.
