Iced Green Tea Latte (Starbucks Copycat)

Green Tea Latte (Starbucks Copycat)

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.

Hand Frother, Fine Mesh Strainer, and Matcha Powder Used.


  • 1 1/2 cups cold milk
  • 1-2 tsp. matcha powder
  • Honey
  • Ice


  • 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!
