Peppermint Cocoa Matcha Latte



Happy holidays! It's that magical time of year with unmistakable, joyful energy swirling in the air. December makes my heart oh so happy 💖 Excitement, happiness, and kindness flow freely with anticipation of the holiday. Inevitably, it can get a little hectic sometimes too. That's when I love to decompress and take quiet moments to enjoy the beauty and peace that surrounds us. Matcha is always my go-to magic ingredient to realign my thoughts in a positive way. While many of you know my favorite way to enjoy it is pure whisked tea, a comforting latte can sure be a special treat too! This one has warm, festive flavors of cocoa and peppermint (yum!) to zenergize your mind through the busy holiday season. Sending peace and joy to you all!
