Celebrate the arrival of spring with our Plum Compote Matcha Latte, a refreshing drink that combines the health benefits of plums and matcha.
Plums are a valuable source of the polyphenol compound chlorogenic acid, which has been scientifically demonstrated to aid in regulating blood sugar levels and appetite. In addition, they are abundant in dietary fiber, which slows the absorption of natural sugars and contributes to feelings of fullness. Plums also contain a variety of essential vitamins and minerals, such as calcium and vitamin C, that are beneficial for overall health and well-being.
Pairing plums with matcha is an excellent way to maximize the benefits of both. The chlorogenic acid in plums, which helps regulate blood sugar and appetite, complements the antioxidants and other beneficial compounds in matcha. Additionally, the fiber in plums can help slow the absorption of natural sugars, providing sustained energy.
