Matcha Mocktail (by Vital Proteins)
1 ounce ginger simple syrup
1 egg white
1 scoop Matcha Collagen (buy it here) or just use regular ol' matcha!
4-8 ounces freshly boiled water
1 t lemon juice
Honey, for drizzling
Ginger simple syrup:
½ C coconut sugar
½ C water
1 large ginger root knob, peeled and sliced
1. To make the ginger simple syrup: combine coconut sugar, water and peeled ginger in a pot. Bring to a boil, then reduce to simmer for 15-20 minutes until sugar is dissolved and syrup is fragrant (makes about a half cup). Strain and discard reserved ginger and set aside syrup.
2. Place egg white in a large bowl. Using a hand mixer, whisk the egg white until stiff peaks form, about 5-6 minutes.
3. Brew Matcha Collagen in cup of choice with freshly boiled water. Add in lemon juice and one-half to one ounce of ginger simple syrup and stir.
4. Top with egg whites and drizzle with honey. Sprinkle matcha powder on top for added flair.
5. Serve immediately.
