With the holiday season upon us, energy and relaxation can be in short supply. This tasty recipe gives you a boost of both, in one healthy and easy to whip up drink. Matcha powder is an antioxidant powerhouse, providing a calming yet energizing feeling while detoxifying your body and boosting your metabolism. All the things we so need this time of year! Lavender adds a relaxing floral note to this recipe, and Manuka honey gives it a sweet taste and immune boosting anti-viral powers. Enjoy this every morning and cheers to a healthy, happy, calm holiday season.
