Matcha Latte Recipe

Any other matcha lovers out there? If you’ve been with me for a while, you know I’m such a matcha fan I even have a green tea muffin recipe that calls for it. For the past couple weeks, I’ve been steadily working on decreasing my daily coffee intake. But, I still have days where I need and want that coffee-pick-me-up. Cue matcha! But how? I make a great muffin with it, but could I make a better-than-a-coffee-shop latte out of it?

I’m happy to report I did!

And it’s easier than you may think.

I like my matcha lattes hot and cold, so here’s how I make it both ways.

HOT Matcha Latte

Ingredients:

  • 1 T hot water
  • 1-1.5 t matcha powder (based on how strong of a matcha flavor you want, I use 1 t)
  • 3/4 cup almond milk
  • 1 pump Monin organic vanilla syrup

Directions:

  • Mix hot water and matcha powder in cup you will drink from
  • Steam almond milk (I microwaved mine for 1.5 min)
  • Use frother if desired to whip almond milk.
  • Pour milk over matcha mixture.
  • Add vanilla syrup.
  • Stir.
  • Enjoy! 

ICED Matcha Latte

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1 t matcha powder (but if you want a stronger matcha flavor, use 1.5 t of powder)
  • 1 pump Monin organic vanilla syrup
  • desired amount of ice

Directions:

  • Mix almond milk, matcha powder, and syrup in cup you will drink from with whisk or frother.
  • Once mixed well, use frother to foam up the top of your milk.
  • Add desired amount of ice.
  • Enjoy!

Not sure where to get matcha from? Back in the day it was nearly IMPOSSIBLE to find. Now thanks to Amazon, it’s literally at your finger tips.

The little can I get from Kroger. The packet I get from Amazon.

So, now I make green tea muffins and green tea lattes, and I’m considering working on a cookie recipe. Unless you already have one, then I’d love to see it!

Until next time,

❤ Lindsay
