Matcha Latte

Matcha Latte

Vitamin Plus

Matcha contains L-theanine, a naturally occurring amino acid that’ll give you a steady stream of energy and keep you focused but relaxed all day long. This revered type of green tea is a gentler source of caffeine, plus is packed with antioxidants. Of course you can enjoy matcha with hot water alone, but this slightly sweet, creamy latte is even better with a dairy free milk and natural sweetener.

 

* Our Matcha Latte can be prepared with or without a blender!

Vegan - Dairy Free - Refined Sugar Free

Prep Time: 3-5 minutes
Cook Time: 2 minutes
Yields: 1 serving


Preparation (No Blender):

  1. Heat your dairy free milk in a saucepan on the stove on low-medium heat, or in the microwave, stirring occasionally.
  2. Stir the coconut spread into the dairy free milk
  3. While your milk is heating, combine matcha, sweetener, cinnamon and warm water in your mug and whisk together to form a paste. A bamboo whisk works best, however you can also use a metal whisk or spoon.
  4. Once you have formed a paste and your milk is hot, combine the two in your serving mug and enjoy!

Blender Option:

  1. Heat your dairy free milk in a saucepan on low-medium heat, or in the microwave, stirring occasionally. Do not bring to a boil. It is important that the milk is not boiling when combined with the matcha because this could burn the matcha.
  2. Combine all ingredients into a blender and blend on high for 1-2 minutes or until frothy.
  3. Enjoy!
