Wake up in the morning with a rejuvenating, nutritious matcha latte. This fast and easy recipe complements and offsets the fragrant, leafy taste of matcha green tea powder with creamy milk and a little sugar for a flavour balance that will leave you feeling ready and raring to go. Delicious hot or cold.
1 tsp matcha green tea powder
2 tsp sugar
3 tbsp warm water
250ml cold milk or 300ml hot milk
Add matcha powder and sugar into a mug:
Spoon 1 tsp matcha green tea powder and 2 tsp sugar into a mug or cup.
Mix with warm water:
Add 3 tsp warm water and mix with a spoon or with a whisk until it is a smooth dark green paste to ensure no lumps form.
Warm 250ml milk in a small saucepan and pour into the mug until nearly full. Use cold milk for an iced latte.
Use a whisk to mix the paste and milk together until smooth and light green in colour.
Garnish and serve:
If you so wish, you can add a few sprinkles of matcha green tea powder on the top for decoration. Or add ice for an extra cold iced latte.
