This festive, comforting Peppermint Cocoa Matcha Latte is a lovely way to zenergize during the hectic holiday season!
Happy holidays! It’s that magical time of year where excitement, happiness, and kindness flows freely with anticipation of the holidays. But as we all know, it can get a little hectic sometimes too. Matcha is my go-to magic ingredient to relax and also realign my thoughts in a calm, positive way. (Many of you know my favorite way to enjoy it is pure whisked tea, but a comforting latte can be a special treat too!) This one has warm, festive flavors of cocoa and peppermint to zenergize your mind through the busy holiday season. Sending peace and joy to all!
