Matcha Latte

 

Matcha Latte

Matcha powder is versatile and is packed with benefits.  This finely powdered green tea can be used in drinks, baking and more.  Matcha has a high concentration of antioxidants, and provides an energy boost.  I am always looking for ways to incorporate something healthy into my foods, and I usually end up sprinkling my matcha powder into smoothies.

However, one of the easiest ways to prepare matcha is as a beverage.  I saw this recipe in Bon Appetit and knew I had to try it!

Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon matcha powder
  • 1/4 cup boiling water
  • 3/4 cup almond milk, or regular milk
  • honey or other sweetener to taste

Directions

Whisk 1 teaspoon matcha powder with 1/4 cup of boiling water.

You want to make sure the matcha is completely dissolved without any lumps.

Mix in your milk.  I heat the milk in the microwave ahead of time, but it depends on how hot you want your latte.

Sweeten to taste.

I use a little handheld frother to mix the latte and create a little foam on top!

    I grew up drinking matcha and this looks like a nice twist on it.
