To kick off Earth Month we made a special matcha latte just for our Copina Co. besties. As a brand, we try to emphasize sustainability in our products. This means using recyclable materials in our shipping items and using PCR film for our pouches. Not to mention, trying one of our vegan recipes can also help save water and be better for the planet! Send us your earth day matcha latte or a vegan recipe you make in honor of earth month!
Now to get into this delicious beverage. Our Earth Day Latte uses one scoop or one stick pack of our vegan collagen support matcha blend. You'll whisk together the matcha blend with 1/4 cup of warm water and set aside.
Then you'll mix together the blue mixture which is made from either blue magnesium powder, blue spirulina, or if you don't have either on hand you can try a normal magnesium powder and add in natural fruit juices to taste! You'll add a splash of plant based milk to your blue or clear mixture with a few ice cubes.
Lastly, pour your vegan collagen support matcha mixture over your blue mixture and you are done! It is super easy, but still hosts all the benefits of our vegan collagen support blend.* If you like your drinks a little sweeter, we recommend mixing a scoop of our vanilla vegan collagen support blend into your blue mixture or you can add your favorite sweetener as you see fit.
Let's dive into a topic that we love, Matcha! Matcha is an excellent substitute for coffee. One cup contains about ¼ of the caffeine of a cup of coffee and helps the person enjoying it get a steady energy boost without the crash.* Matcha is also rich in L-Theanine, an amino acid that works to promote brain function, concentration, and a sense of calmness without nervous energy or jitters.* L-Theanine can also work to reduce anxiety because of the high and raw amounts that are found in matcha.* You can find matcha in our Matcha Vegan Collagen Support Drink Blend Stick Packs or pouches which are available on our site.
- It’s an antioxidant powerhouse
- It eases stress
- Matcha contains essential vitamins
- Matcha contains high levels of chlorophyll, a green pigment found in the plant that promotes clear and healthy skin, hair, and joints.*
Matcha contains 137 times more EGCG which is an antioxidant found in regular green tea. EGCG has been researched and linked to encouraging healthy metabolism and improving signs of aging.* This antioxidant fights against DNA damage done from UV rays which in turn combat signs of aging skin.
Green tea is packed with Vitamin B2 and Vitamin E, both incredibly essential for maintaining healthy skin. B2 plays an essential role in balancing collagen levels which improves skin texture and firmness.* Vitamin E encourages cell growth and enforces hydrated and nourished skin. Plus packed with our other collagen-boosting ingredients like Tremella Mushroom, Amla Berry, and Bamboo Leaf Extract, your morning Matcha helps your body naturally upkeep its collagen production.
