My matcha latte has become a daily ritual. I have an entire bin dedicated to the process, but most days I keep it super simple: matcha, steamed milk, coconut butter, cinnamon, and one of my favorite adaptogens: mucuna pruriens. I’ll often have an afternoon latte or evening tonic and today I’m sharing a few of my favorites – one with turmeric, one with blue majik, and one with gojis.

They are all spiked with adaptogens for maximum benefits. Adaptogens have infiltrated into mainstream consciousness recently – here’s a little 101 if you are curious why people are spiking their drinks. Adaptogens encompass a wide range of plants, herbs, and roots, many of which have been used as healing foods for thousands of years in traditional cultures. They essentially help you “adapt” to every day life and stressors. They can be incredibly powerful and help you build resilience and strengthen your body. Start slow, use cautiously, and make sure you are purchasing from trusted providers. Adaptogens work best taken in small doses over time – no quick fix here!

I hope you try out these delicious adaptogenic lattes all designed with a certain benefit in mind – the matcha latte for energy and detox power, the golden latte for immunity, the goji latte for it’s antioxidant beauty boosting power and the blue majik latte for it’s stress-reliving magic. Feel free to play around in the kitchen and come up with your own creations!
