If you know anything about me, it’s probably that I love these things: dogs, traveling, movement, meditation, and MATCHA. I have been a matcha fiend for about 5 years now. My mom brought me a bag from an asian grocery store, and that ignited my love. I’ve been making my own lattes at home ever since. I’ve been toying with my recipe for years. I change it up often, sometimes adding cacao or maca or some other fun ingredient. Here’s the version I’m currently loving.
For one big ass cup of matcha:
1 cup oat milk
1 cup water
1/2 cup coconut milk or creme from a can (you can also use regular coconut milk, just add more milk and less water). I also love using macadamia nut milk.
1 teaspoon - 1 tablespoon matcha powder (if you’re new to the flavor of matcha, start with less and work your way up. I use about a tablespoon, but I love the flavor.)
Sweetener to taste (I use about 1 tbs of maple syrup or coconut sugar)
1/4 teaspoon of turmeric
optional: a splash of vanilla, some mushroom powder, and/or a pinch of ginger powder
Add all ingredients to blender and blend on high for a few seconds. This will mix it really well and also froth it up.
Add matcha to a pot and heat until it’s hot. I like mine super hot so I heat to almost boiling.
ENJOY. Yes, it’s that easy.
Note: After you’re familiar with how much of each ingredient to add, you don’t have to measure everything out. This usually takes me between 3-5 minutes to make each morning.
Another note: This recipe can also be made cold. Just don’t heat up the milk and then pour over ice.
Send me a picture or tag me in a story if you make this matcha latte so I can drool over it with you heheh.
Much love, Melissa
