Matcha ocean tonic.
(original recipe first published on MindBodyGreen)


½ cup coconut or hemp milk (these are the frothiest)

⅔ cup brewed butterfly pea tea (I used Blue Chai - organic & sustainable)

1 teaspoon cacao butter

½ teaspoon coconut oil

¼ teaspoon blue matcha

¼ teaspoon vanilla

Pinch of sea salt

Optional additions:: ½ tablespoon grass-fed collagen powder, ½ teaspoon honey or maple syrup to sweeten


Brew the butterfly pea tea by steeping 1 teaspoon of the loose tea for 4 to 6 minutes.

Gently heat chosen milk, adding the cacao butter and coconut oil to melt.

Add the sea salt, vanilla, (sweetener and/or collagen if using) until everything is warmed through.

Once the tea has been steeped to a rich blue, add this along with the warmed milk to a high-speed blender.

Blend everything well for a minute or two until light and frothy.

Pour into your favorite mug, sprinkle and swirl some extra blue matcha.
