This quick, easy recipe results in a very sweet, but raw, low-sugar and healthy beverage that is incredibly soothing. The banana satisfyingly thickens the tea, and is said to promote natural serotonin and melatonin to help promote calmness.
1 ripe banana
1 tsp vanilla extract
Sweetener to taste (honey, stevia, agave syrup, or coconut sugar)
Cinnamon to taste
Salt to taste
Cut both ends off the banana.
Boil banana in water (~1.5 cups) for 10 minutes. It will smell delicious!
Transfer the banana to a blender, and blend until pureed. Measure out 1.5 tsp of Mizuba matcha powder into your tea bowl. Use the banana puree to make your Matcha.

Once frothy, add a pinch of cinnamon, salt, vanilla extract, and your sweeter of choice.
Whisk again, and enjoy!
