Matcha Green Tea Latte

Ever since I tried Matcha, I’ve been kind of hooked! It’s not only delicious, there are also many health benefits.

Now I don’t drink it as just brewed green tea, I always like to put a little extra yumminess in. Last summer, I was hooked on this Iced Green Tea Frappe Recipe.

This year, it’s the Matcha Green Tea Latte. It is perfect anytime of the day when you need a little warmth or relaxation. And did I mention that it’s really easy to make? All you need is a milk frother and a few simple ingredients.

Matcha Green Tea Latte Featuare

Ingredients
1 cup of milk (any kind you prefer)
1-2 tsp of Matcha green tea powder
1-2 tbsp of  sugar
whipping cream (optional)

Instructions for automatic milk frother:
1. Put the milk, matcha powder and sugar in your frother
2. Select the heat/froth button and let it do its thing
3. Pour it into your cup
4. If you want, put on the whipping cream and sprinkle a little powder on top to make it look pretty.
5. Then enjoy!

Instructions for hand frother:
1. Heat your milk separately, on the stove or in the microwave
2. Put the milk in a deep cup (to avoid splatter)
3. Add the Matcha powder and sugar. Turn on the frother and mix until everything is well combined and you have some froth on top.
4. Pour into a cup and add the whipping cream if you like.
5. Then enjoy.

It truly is that simple and it tastes just as delicious as your favourite coffee shop. A bonus is that you know exactly what is going into your drink.

p.s. If you’re not sure about frothers, I tested out a few so hopefully that might help you pick one out.

  1. My one experience with matcha (I think – at a tea ceremony) was not positive. But then again, if I drank traditional Aztec hot chocolate I might not have liked it, either. This recipe does intrigue me, with the addition of sugar and milk.

  2. Salma,

    I’ve been meaning to drink more green tea, and this recipe sounds tasty. The only problem is, I don’t have a frother!

    Is there a way to make the froth without one?

  3. Hmmm, looks like something I should try! At the moment, I’m drinking hot green tea with lemon and honey. Never thought of making frappes or lattes! Thanks for sharing!

  4. I have been drinking green tea matcha everyday for the past 6 months. It is the only thing that has given me the energy to get through the day. Usually after work I have no energy left to take care of my kids. And now I get a second wind. I only drink it once in the morning otherwise I can’t sleep at night. Th Japanese make it with a bamboo wish, mixing the powder with a little bit of hot water to dilute the powder. And then add more water to fill your cup. I seriously can’t live without it.

    1. That’s so wonderful that you not only enjoy but that it gives you that energy boost you need! We take the help we get when it comes to taking care of kids, right? 😉
