If you also need a quick boost to get the old synapses firing, here is my recipe:
1 tsp. powdered matcha
4 oz. vanilla soy milk (or plain soy milk with a teaspoon of sugar and a drop of vanilla)
Put the matcha in a cocktail shaker or any other closable container, and add a little of the soymilk. Stir until it forms a paste -- this is very important if drinking chunky matcha is not on your agenda for the morning. Pop in a few ice cubes. Now add the rest of the soymilk and shake until it's mixed. (See? This is easy enough that even I can manage it in the mornings) Strain into a glass and enjoy. Repeat as needed.Happy Monday!
Update: If you happen to own a submersible blender, ditch the shaker and use the blender instead. Dump all ingedients into an appropriately tall container and zizz away. Handheld zen, at last!
