I absolutely adore matcha tea! If you’re like me, you have probably had it in all shapes and forms… In a macaron, latte, cake, or even brownies! You name it, I tried it! Matcha lemonade has actually been on my to do list for the longest time. I have been wanting to share this recipe with you, I just didn’t find the right opportunity until now.

The thing here, is that I was able to get this insanely tasty matcha from iHerb that also contains collagen! Can you believe it?!

What’s iHerb?!

iHerb is a natural product retail company that serve customers in over 150 different countries. They carry over 30’000 natural products from supplements to grocery items. The best part is that when you order you items they are shipped from a climate controlled distribution center to ensure that the product you are receiving is top quality!

And if you ever have any questions or need any help on their website, know that they have 24/7 customer service in 10 different languages ready to help you at any time. Neat, isn’t it!

When I ordered through iHerb, it was a simple and quick process and the shipping was even faster. I would definitely recommend purchasing items from there if you need for them to arrive quickly.

What is collagen and what does it do?

Collagen is a protein that is most abundant in the human body. It is pretty much found everywhere! It’s in your connective tissues, bones, muscles, skin, and tendons. Unfortunately, with the EDS that I have my body makes defective collagen which leaves me prone to getting hurt and in pain most days. That’s why I take collagen supplements often!

Good thing there are quite a lot of collagen supplements that you can easily find in stores or online, this Matcha Road being one of them.

Consuming collagen can help keep your skin elastic, increase bone density weakened by age, as well as improve joint, back, and knee pain.

What is matcha and why is it in my lemonade

What is matcha and why is it in my lemonade?!

Matcha is a finely ground tea powder. It comes from a specific green tea plant, is harvested, dried, and then ground up.

You probably have seen it throughout the years on Instagram or on other social media platforms. It was such a hyped-up thing that you could pretty much order matcha drinks anywhere, but they aren’t always the healthiest, that’s why it is much better to make your own at home.

Matcha is also extremely high in antioxidants, could be used to help you lose weight, and is often a great caffeine option because it does not make you crash like coffee does!

Oh, and it’s in your lemonade because it is delicious! The matcha green tea flavor itself is delicious paired with lemons.

Storing your matcha lemonade with chia seeds

Storing this lemonade is as simple as 1,2,3! Make the recipe as per the instructions and store any leftover in the fridge as usual.

I’d recommend that you store this lemonade for only a few days since that’s when it tastes the best. Anything longer than 2 days might affect the flavor.
