What do you put in a Matcha Latte?

Try you iced matcha latte with your favorite milk.  Almond, hemp, coconut, oat, or regular milk will work.  Use about 2 teaspoons of matcha green tea powder for each latte. I used this brand of matcha green tea powder and it’s excellent.  For sweetener, add maple syrup or honey.  You can also try peppermint extract (about 1/8th a teaspoon) or muddled mint in your iced matcha latte.

How to make an iced matcha latte

This recipe is simple and requires just a few ingredients.  You also don’t need any fancy coffee makers or barista skills.  If you plan to enjoy matcha lattes during the week, I’d invest in a bamboo matcha whisk or milk frother that will foam it up at the same time. Begin by sifting your matcha powder into a bowl.  This is important because it clumps easily and you don’t want them in your latte!

Step 1

Sift your matcha green tea into a bowl.  Green tea powder tends to be lumpy if not sifted so don’t skip this step.

Step 2

Add a couple tablespoons of hot water to your matha and use your whisk to stir until smooth.

Step 3

Pour milk into an ice filled glass along with your desired amount of sweetener and stir. I like maple syrup but you can also try muddled lime or stevia.

Step 4

Add your cooled matcha to the glass and top with mint or an edible flower.
