Have you ever had a really great Matcha latte at a cafe and wondered how to make it taste just like that at home?
Well we can help!! It's easier than you think!
This recipe is five ingredients and takes less than five minutes. The best part is... it's customizable!
The most important part of making a matcha latte is starting with good quality Matcha. Our Soirèe Matcha cha cha is 100% organic Japanese Ceremonial grade Matcha tea. It's the best there is.
Next you need something to help dissolve the Matcha powder in the water. This can be done with a Matcha whisk, metal whisk, in a blender, OR, we love our electric frothers. The frother gives it that foamy deliciousness we love at the cafe without the cafe prices!.
Finally, you will need some milk (your choice) and sweetener (also your choice).
We have made a few suggestions in the recipe below.
- 1 -2 tsp matcha powder
- 1 Tbsp maple syrup (or stevia to taste // more or less to preference + depending on sweetness of milk)
- 3-5 oz hot water (Just under boiling is best 160-175F)
- 1-2 cup milk of choice (vanilla almond milk is our fav but Macadamia milk is a close second)
- 1 tsp vanilla
Add matcha powder to your serving mug along with sweetener of choice and hot water.
Whisk with Soirèe Electric frother or a bamboo or metal whisk until completely dissolved. You can even blend the latte in a blender.
Once the matcha is completely dissolved, heat your milk. To get more froth, you can whisk vigorously or use our handheld frother
Pour milk into your mug - latte art optional :) Taste and add more sweetener if needed.
*Latte can also be made cold over ice. Simply add all ingredients plus a handful of ice to a jar, cover, and shake vigorously to combine.
This would make the perfect gentle caffeine boost when you need a little pick-me-up. We love ours warm but on a really hot day over Ice is the next best thing!
