After using a blender from the '90s for my entire life, I have finally joined the 21st century and purchased a NutriBullet (using coupons).  I'm really into it and plan on making delicious mixtures of everything, from horchata to lightly blended guacamole and more.  My first attempt at using the Magic Bullet was my creation of a Matcha Latte.  I love Matcha just like everyone else on this earth.

 I mixed:

2 1/2 teaspoons of matcha powder
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract (*This was crucial)
2 teaspoons of raw and local honey
2 teaspoons of virgin, unrefined coconut oil (*This was one teaspoon too many - I'd suggest using one large teaspoon instead)
1/2 cup of unsweetened and organic almond milk (*I've heard that it's even better with coconut milk)

Please don't do as I did and blend fully.  I took a sip of liquid, chunky with coconut oil, and was deeply disturbed (this is the reason for no final picture of the drink. After that sip I just could not compel myself to continue my documentation).  All of the ingredients were delicious, but small pieces of coconut oil floating in a drink is not my idea of fun.  It should be frothy and latte-like at the end.  I blend coconut oil into my coffee sometimes and the result is a foamy latte.  The coconut oil needs a decent amount of blending before it turns creamy.  This drink is really cooling in this overly warm winter weather we have been experiencing in the north east, and the light and even stream of caffeine held me over for my trip to Princeton that day.
