Matcha latte, a delicious and comforting drink, full of antioxidants. It only requires 3 simple ingredients and to make it you just need 10 minutes!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup milk of your choice (250 ml), I used unsweetened soy milk
  • 1/4 cup boiling water (65 ml)
  • 1 tsp matcha tea powder
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup (optional)
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract (optional)
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon (optional)

Instructions

  1. Heat the milk in a saucepan over medium heat until hot (for about 3-5 minutes), stirring occasionally. Set aside.
  2. Combine the boiling water, the matcha tea powder, the maple syrup, and the ground cinnamon in a small bowl until well mixed. I used a bamboo whisk, but feel free to use a fork, a spoon, or any other whisk you have on hand (you could also blend all the ingredients in a regular blender or add all the ingredients to a jar and shake it until well combined).
  3. Pour the milk into a mug, add the matcha tea mixture, and stir until well combined.
  4. Serve it warm or keep the leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for 2-3 days. You can reheat it in the microwave or in a saucepan until warm.

Notes

  • Feel free to use your favorite plant milk. Soy milk is my favorite choice for this recipe, although I also really enjoy it with almond milk or coconut milk.
  • You can replace the maple syrup for any other kind of sweetener, or simply don’t add any if you don’t want to.
  • Vanilla extract and ground cinnamon are optional, but they give the matcha latte a great flavor.
  • If you don’t want to give it up during the summertime, you can also enjoy this delicious beverage with some ice if it’s really hot outside.
