Serves 2.

  • 2 cups hemp milk*
  • 1 tablespoon matcha* (green tea powder),  divided
  • 2 teaspoons agave

In small saucepan, bring hemp milk to a simmer.

Place 1-1/2 teaspoons matcha powder into each of two mugs.

Bring 1/2 cup water to boil. Slowly pour 1/4 cup hot water into each mug, stirring to completely dissolve the matcha powder.

Pour one cup of warm hemp milk into each mug, whisking with a small whisk, fork, or specialty coffee beverage frother.

Stir in 1 teaspoon agave to each mug if desired. Garnish by sprinkling matcha powder lightly on top.

*Hemp milk creates a thick, creamy beverage and is available at specialty and well-stocked grocery markets, or substitute almond milk (or half coconut milk and half coconut water). Matcha can be found at similar stores or ordered online.

Note: Consuming hemp products alone should not affect drug-test results, according to this manufacturers FAQs.
