Good morning, everyone!
I recently got my matcha powder in the mail, and I’m so excited to use it for a variety of recipes. The main reason I bought the powder though, was to try and make a copycat Starbucks green tea latte. That’s one of my go-to orders there, and I wanted to give it a shot at home.
After a few attempts, I decided this recipe was a keeper! It only requires a few ingredients, and it’s so simple to make!
I used my hand frother for this, but if you don’t have one, no problem. You can use a whisk when it comes time to combine the matcha powder and milk.
Additionally, if you don’t want to use dairy milk, you can substitute with any milk of your choice.
- 1 1/2 cups cold milk
- 1-2 tsp. matcha powder
- Using a fine mesh strainer, sift the matcha powder into your glass of choice. Start with 1 tsp. and add another if you want more matcha flavor. (I found 1 tsp. to be enough).
- Add the milk to your glass. Use the hand frother (or whisk) to combine the milk and matcha powder.
- When combined, add honey to taste. You can use the hand frother or whisk to mix it in. (There will be a few pieces of matcha floating around that don’t get fully dissolved- that’s okay!)
- Add ice cubes once sweetened, and enjoy!
