80(ish)--- Hot Matcha Lemonade

When I was pregnant I was obsessed with lemonade.

OBSESSED.

But even better was the Matcha Lemonade from the Daily Coffee Bar.  It's good for baby, right?

I loved it so much I made my hubby go get me some while I was in labor.

OBSESSED.

I still love it.  But there is still snow on the ground so it seems like a hot version is in order.

What a perfect sipper if you are feeling under the weather!  Matcha is green tea powder and contains more antioxidants than blueberries!

If you buy it in bulk don't be afraid of the price! It is approximately $70/pound.  HOWEVER.  It is very light weight.  I paid $0.49 yesterday for three tablespoons.

I think we should sip on this daily to PREVENT getting sick.

20 oz boiling water
