Dalgona is one of the most popular coffee drinks at the moment. And, being a matcha lover, I just had to make it with a twist. Introducing the dalgona matcha latte! Made with a iced matcha vanilla latte on the bottom, and topped with whipped frothy coffee on top. This is THE perfect drink to slowly sip on during a hot summer's day.
ARE MATCHA LATTES HEALTHY?
Matcha is loaded with high antioxidant disease fighting nutrients! Matcha green tea powder is packed with an amino acid called L-Theanine, that helps to reduce mental stress, enhances mood, and creates an alert yet calm effect.
WHAT FLAVORS PAIR WELL WITH MATCHA LATTE?
Matcha latte pairs well with a number of flavors, vanilla being the most popular flavor.
TIPS TO MAKE THE BEST EVER ICED DALGONA MATCHA LATTE
USE HIGH QUALITY MATCHA GREEN TEA POWDER. Make sure to select quality matcha powder for your matcha dalgona.
SHAKE OR FROTH MATCHA TO HAVE A FOAMY MATCHA TOP. If you like a foamy matcha latte, be sure to use the shake method or your favorite milk frother to combine the matcha green tea powder in to the milk.
HOW TO MAKE AN ICED DALGONA MATCHA LATTE
So my boyfriend was picking up some ingredients for me at the store, and I had instant coffee powder on the list. He came back with a HUGE tub of half caf coffee.. So I'm including a few links to ingredients on amazon in case you have trouble finding them too LOL!!
And guess what, it's super easy to make! This time I used what I call the "shake method" to combine the matcha and milk.. maybe I just didn't want another whisk to clean.. hah. But, you can also combine the matcha and milk using any of the following:
I like to use vanilla soy milk in mine. I think that it gives the latte a nice creamy and subtly vanilla flavor. But, if you don't have.. or don't like soy milk, you can use any kind of milk that you have !
Give it more of a vanilla flavor by adding ⅛ teaspoon of pure vanilla extract!
And now we shake shake shake! I thought the extra green tea foam was a yummy addition to the whipped coffee, they blended together really nicely.
Now we move on to the dalgona portion of this iced dalgona matcha. I really thought the blender method was going to be faster. But, I found that I got a much better whipped texture by doing the manual whisk method!
Scroll along to see the 4 minute process.
And now, we have achieved that perfect glossy color and whipped texture. Time to pile it on top of your matcha green tea!
PS-- that is a glass straw! I am loving it lately instead of my biodegradable paper straws. I felt like it helped keep the drink cool while I was drinking it!
It stirs really nicely into that frothy matcha top. YUM!

Iced Dalgona Matcha Latte
- 1 cup vanilla soy milk *see notes
- 1 teaspoon matcha green tea powder
- 1 cup ice cubes
- 2 tablespoon instant coffee powder
- 2 tablespoon granulated sugar
- 2 tablespoon boiling water
- In a mason jar, add the vanilla soy milk and the matcha green tea powder. Shake until combined. Or, you can use a milk frother.
- Next, add the instant coffee powder, sugar, and boiling water to a medium sized bowl. Use a whisk to stir the powder. It should take ~4 minutes of whisking to achieve the frothy "dalgona" texture. You can alternatively use a hand held milk frother or blender. Although, surprisingly I got a better texture doing it manually with a whisk.
- Add the ice cubes to your matcha green tea. Pile the whipped coffee on top. Enjoy!

Looks so refreshing!
Thank you! It was so tasty!
Wow this dalgona matcha is just so pretty!! I love the layers in this drink. Do you think it would work with coconut sugar or honey?
I have not tried it with honey yet but let me know how it works! Coconut sugar does work pretty well but doesn't get as frothy
