Lena Dunham Loves This Iced Matcha Drink—and We've Got the Recipe
Between helming Lenny Letter, filming the sixth (and final) season of Girls, and supporting Hillary Clinton on the campaign trail, Lena Dunham is looking at one helluva busy summer. So it makes sense that the actress would need to caffeinate herself accordingly. Shortly after speaking about women's rights at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, Dunham took to Instagram to rally behind a different candidate: this iced coconut matcha latte.
The vibrant drink boosts concentration and increases energy levels, and it comes courtesy of Matthew Morton, co-founder of Cha Cha Matcha, a new, highly Instagrammable café in downtown N.Y.C. specializing in the stone-ground green tea (Gigi Hadid and Leonardo DiCaprio are also fans). In case you can't fly to the East Coast for the real thing, we asked Morton for a simplified recipe to make at home.
Read on for the full breakdown.
