DIY Matcha Latte

Does anyone else feel the struggle is real when it comes to trying to find a good matcha latte in Boston?  If you have found a spot in the Boston area that makes tasty ones then help a sista out!  (I know Whole Foods makes them but they are just ok in my opinion).  For now, I have yet to find one better than the one I make myself. 

Thanks to the green tea leaves this latte is packed with polyphenols (think detox/healthy skin) and L theanine (think stress relief) as well as loaded with healthy fats from the coconut butter-a naturally antifungal/antimicrobial fruit (think improving gut health by getting the bad bacteria out). I add maca powder for balancing energy and hormones as well as collagen for a boost of gut healing protein. 

Basically, a healer in a mug:)
