We are beyond excited to partner with the amazing team at Model Meals. Orders placed for their July 28th menu cycle will receive a free sampler pack of our Matcha Latte Infusions!
Model Meals is the no subscription required, 100% Whole 30/Paleo approved, ready-to-eat, meal prep service founded by two boss babes Danika Brysha and Camille May.
I’ve had the pleasure of experiencing their meals and THEY. ARE. DELICIOUS. Being someone who follows the paleo lifestyle myself, I often find that it can be daunting and tiresome to cook up a paleo meal from scratch after a long day of work. At that point, most of my willpower has been exhausted and I find myself leaning towards making convenient and unhealthy choices to save time. Model Meals adds so much value to my life by crafting delicious whole 30/paleo meals and delivering them straight to my door every week.
My favorite way of enjoying Model Meals is to reheat the meal on my stove, hide my phone and laptop to disconnect for my lunch break, and whip out my electric frother and whisk up one of our Matcha Latte Infusions to pair with my meal.
Want to try them for yourself? We've got a sweet deal for you. Use "JADELEAF35" for $35 off your first Model Meals order of $50 or more!
What is matcha?
Matcha is simply pure, high grade green tea leaves from Japan that are ground up into a fine powder. For centuries, monks have enjoyed matcha to support wellbeing and concentration during meditation.
Matcha is renowned for numerous health benefits. It is rich in nutrients, antioxidants, fiber and chlorophyll. The health benefits of matcha exceed those of other green teas because matcha drinkers ingest the whole leaf, not just the brewed water. One glass of matcha is the equivalent of 10 glasses of green tea in terms of nutritional value and antioxidant content.
Matcha also contains L-theanine, an amino acid known to relax the mind. For this
reason, matcha is also known as a mood enhancer. Buddhist monks drank matcha to assist in meditation, as matcha’s amino acids, combined with caffeine, offer a sustained calm alertness over time.
Meet our Matcha Latte Infusions
We took organic matcha our farmers specifically crafted for exceptional lattes, and infused it with carefully chosen functional ingredients and adaptogens for health and well-being. Just blend, whisk, or shake with your favorite milk until smooth for a delicious latte, hot or iced.
In each blend, premium organic Japanese matcha provides green tea nutrients and calm, focused energy. We also include pure organic acacia senegal, a soluble fiber that helps support a healthy, stable gut. All blends are unsweetened, dairy free, gluten free, and are paleo and keto friendly.
- Premium functional ingredients at an approachable price
- No added sugar or other sweeteners
- About 1/3 the caffeine of a cup of coffee (30-40mg), with naturally occurring l-theanine for a calm, alert feeling
- Convenient single serve stick packs - blend, whisk or shake with milk for a satisfying, nutritious latte, hot or iced
Best enjoyed daily as your morning or afternoon pick-me-up with extra benefits for your mind, body, and gut.
The Lineup: Our Infusions come in four delicious blends

GLOW Face Mask
Our GLOW Matcha Latte Infusion has a blend of collagen and biotin that has incredible benefits for hair, skin, and nails. Because matcha is so versatile, we played around with a simple face mask recipe so you can reap the benefits of collagen and biotin when applied topically!

- 1 tsp of manuka honey
- 1-2 drops of luke warm water
- Add all ingredients into a bowl and combine to make a paste
- Apply a thin layer on your face for approximately 15 minutes (you’ll feel the mask tighten once it dries)
