Matcha!!! We’re turning this superfood into a creamy Iced Matcha Green Tea Latte! This is my favorite way to drink matcha – it is so good! Bonus: it comes together in minutes, and it’s easily adaptable.
How to Make an Iced Matcha Latte:
- Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk: This is the base of the latte. This provides a subtle vanilla flavor, and it is low in calories. Feel free to swap this out for any milk of your choice. It’s delicious with coconut milk, too!
- Matcha: Choose your favorite brand of matcha green tea powder. Make sure you check the ingredients, some can included hidden sugars.
- Honey or Maple Syrup: Choose the sweetener of your choice to sweeten this latte. Use as much or as little as you’d like.
- Vanilla Extract: This special ingredient is what sets this recipe apart from others. Just a drop or two adds a sweet underying vanilla flavor to the latte.
Tips for Making a Matcha Latte:
- My #1 tip for preparing matcha is to ensure the matcha powder is completely dissolved in the beverage. I use a blender to mix up this latte which ensures it always has a smooth consistency with no lumps.
- Since this recipe does require a blender, I often double or triple it and store the leftovers in the fridge for up to 3 days. All you have to do is give it a quick shake and pour it over ice when you’re ready. No need to wash the blender every single day.
- If you’d like to turn this latte into a smoothie, add ½ a frozen banana, a handful of ice and 1-2 scoops of protein powder before blending. You can even sneak in a handful of spinach, too.
I love having one of these lattes before a workout. It energizes without a jittery over-caffeinated feeling. Not only is this latte delicious but it is so good for you. Matcha green tea is energizing, anti-inflammatory, and high in antioxidants. Get sipping!
