Green Tea Latte

Guess what? I have some more big news!

This past week has been full of fun things and announcements  It started with New Year's intentions, moved to a special on Baking with Quinoa, then on to a coconut oil giveaway and now for the biggest news of all. The boyfriend and I are moving to New York City in two weeks! We're super excited (also super scared at the same time) but can't wait to start this new chapter of our lives. It's a great way to start the year, that's for sure!

And for me, the move couldn't come at a better time. You see, even though I live in Vermont (where the winter seems to last for years), I still haven't gotten used to the cold. In fact, I hate the cold. With all of my being I hate it. I would so much rather be sitting on the couch, swaddled in fleece blankets, fuzzy fleece socks wrapped around my feet, with my fur lined slippers ensuring they stay toasty warm all day long, than thinking of stepping outside and feeling like I'm going to freeze to death.

But then there's always tea, right?

Last week it was -10 degrees here with the wind chill. For a person that despises the cold, I was miserable. All I wanted to do was drink tea all day long. But as much as I love my herbal tea, sometimes there needs to be something more.

Which is exactly why whipping up this fabulous Green Tea Latte was in order. Green tea with its amazing health benefits, combined with foamy almond milk and sprinkled with ground ginger, was the perfect Asian-inspired beverage for those bitter winter days.

So it's time to cozy up to a crackling fire, with your favorite new book on your lap, and a cup of this Green Tea Latte in your hands. And you know what? I think I've suddenly warmed up to the idea of winter…

  1. You’ll have so much fun in New York! I lived in Brooklyn for 5 years and it was a really special place.

    Thanks for sharing your recipe at 5-Ingredient Mondays. Love that it’s sugar-free!

    • Thanks Iris! I can’t wait to explore the city – and Brooklyn too (I’m dying to go to the flea market!!!) 🙂 So many GF options to choose from and new foods to explore. I’m super excited! And I’m glad I found your link party – it’s a great concept!

  2. Congradulations to you both…I wish you all the very best! Thank you for this super awesome recipe, I am going to look in to finding a milk frother, they sound like a really great thing to have. I made this today and I put my warmed almond milk in my blender and blended it on high and it made it foamy …so for me I thought it was really good. I so enjoy your blog and your recipes are always really great, thank you so much!

    • Thank you Kathy! We’re very excited 🙂 if you look on my FB page in the comments section of this photo, you can find the link to the one that on have. It’s fairly inexpensive and works great! The blender was a great idea as well – might have to give it a whirl just to see what it’s like. And I’m thrilled you enjoyed the. Now I’m craving one with breakfast 😉

  3. Great idea! I drink green tea all the time and never thought of this. I’m making some right now but with coconut milk instead of almond milk since I’m out of that. Should be yummy!
