Dunkin Iced Matcha Latte Recipe. Make Dunkin Donuts iced matcha latte right at home! I'm showing you how to make my easy healthy iced matcha latte using three method options: shaken in a mason jar, blended in a blender, and blended using a milk frother.
I love a good matcha latte, but sometimes when I order it outside, there is so much sugar in it that I can't even enjoy it! So I made this Dunkin Donuts iced matcha latte with a lot less sweetener so that you can enjoy the benefits of matcha without all the sugar.
My iced matcha latte recipe is easy to make, and also vegan, dairy free, gluten free and low FODMAP friendly.
IS ICED MATCHA FROM DUNKIN GOOD?
I love iced matcha but personally the one from dunkin is way too sweet for me! And once I accidentally ordered it with whole milk, and being a non dairy milk drinker, it was like drinking sweet heavy cream mixed with matcha.
Iced matcha, unsweetened, has a very vegetable-like flavor. I would compare it to a less intense wheat grass. I never drink my matcha lattes totally unsweetened. Matcha powder mixed with milk and sweetener will give it a more pleasant delicious flavor.
IS DUNKIN DONUTS ICED MATCHA LATTE HEALTHY?
You might think you are ordering a healthy drink with this menu choice, but it is actually so high in sugar that the healthy benefits of matcha are neutralized.
Dunkin iced matcha latte nutrition: 180 calories, 34grams carbs, 19 grams added sugar, 11 grams protein, 30% daily value for vitamin D, 25% daily value for calcium, 10% daily value for potassium. (Medium size, from their website)
When we should eat only a max of 25 grams of added sugar per day, 19 grams in one drink is a LOT!
DOES THE ICED MATCHA FROM DUNKIN HAVE CAFFEINE?
Yes! Matcha green tea powder has caffeine.
TIPS TO MAKE THE BEST ICED MATCHA LATTE
USE HIGH QUALITY MATCHA GREEN TEA POWDER. Make sure to use ceremonial grade.
WHISK MATCHA INTO MILK COMPLETELY. Make sure there are no little bits of dry matcha at all.
ADD SWEETENER IF YOU LIKE IT SWEETER.
HOW TO MAKE A DUNKIN ICED MATCHA LATTE AT HOME
I have included 3 methods to make your latte at home, so choose the one with the equipment you have! Method one uses only a mason jar with a lid. Method two uses any kind of blender. And method three uses a milk frother.
EQUIPMENT YOU NEED:
- A mason jar (shaken method)
- A blender (blender method)
- A frother (frother method)
- A straw
INGREDIENTS YOU NEED:
- Quality matcha green tea powder
- Milk of choice
- Sweetener of choice (optional)
- Ice cubes
METHOD 1: SHAKEN ICED MATCHA LATTE IN A MASON JAR
The first way is my favorite way, I call it The Shake Method.
Add all the ingredients into your mason jar (except for the ice) and cover with a tight fitting lid.
Shake it vigorously until there are no dry clumps of matcha green tea powder.
When I don't want to go to the gym this is my mini arm workout LOL!
It should be a smooth pale green color.
And that is it! The shake method gives you an easy iced matcha latte in no time. Read on below for the other 2 easy matcha methods I do sometimes.
METHOD 2: BLENDER ICED MATCHA LATTE
Another way you can make it is by adding the matcha powder, maple syrup (or other sweetener), and milk to a blender. Blend until it is smooth. Then, pour it into a glass over ice!
METHOD 3: THE FROTHER METHOD
The third way you can make it is with a frother. You can find really inexpensive hand held frothers on Amazon (and no they don't use steam or heat the beverage).
Add the matcha powder, sweetener, and milk to a glass. Then, use the hand held frother to blend the drink right in the glass till it is combined. It works kind of like a mini immersion blender. Add your iced and that's it!

Frequently asked questions about my dunkin copycat iced matcha latte.
IS DUNKIN ICED MATCHA SWEET?
Yes! The iced matcha at dunkin donuts is made with a lot of sweetener. I added less sweetener in my recipe to make it healthier, so adjust the amount of honey or maple syrup to your preference.
CAN YOU MAKE A MATCHA LATTE WITH TEA BAGS?
No! Iced matcha is made with a concentrated green tea powder. But, you can make iced green tea with tea bags, which is less strong than matcha green tea. Steep green tea bags in hot water, then either chill in the fridge to cool down, or add ice and enjoy.
IS MATCHA GOOD FOR WEIGHT LOSS?
Yes! Matcha studies show that matcha can help to boost your metabolism and fat burning. Keep in mind sweeteners and sweetened milk used, which can take away the weight loss benefits.
DOES MATCHA MAKE YOU POOP?
The caffeine in matcha just like in coffee can have laxative effects. Although, since matcha does not have the same amount of caffeine that coffee does, these effects are lesser.
Iced Matcha Caffeine Content (1 teaspoon matcha green tea powder caffeine)= Average 64mg (matcha powders vary in caffeine content)
