Matcha is one of those drinks that 10 years ago almost no one knew about, and now, everyone is drinking them! It’s not just because it looks pretty either. Matcha is a SUPER food. It actually comes from powdered green tea, making it highly concentrated. This means even more green tea benefits like those important antioxidants. Try my Matcha Latte today!
Keep in mind though, that matcha without any sweetener can have a bitter taste. I highly recommend a little maple syrup or vanilla milk to enhance the flavor (and experience hehe) of your matcha latte!
They’re super easy to make:
Step 1: Make the matcha paste
Add 1 teaspoon of matcha to a splash of milk and whisk until a paste forms.
Set your mug aside while you steam the milk.
Step 2: Steam your milk
For this you can either use a hand held steamer, or the steamer attachment of your espresso machine.
Another way to get a frothy texture if you don’t have either of those is with a blender! You can skip the first step if you are making it this way. All you have to do is heat your milk in the microwave or over the stove and then add all ingredients into a blender. Blend until it is smooth and no chunks of the beet root powder are left. Pour into your latte and enjoy!
If you want to see the steamer and espresso machine I have at home, you can visit the kitchen gadgets page of my amazon shop account.
Step 3: Pour your matcha latte
Pour your frothed milk into your matcha paste. I like to whisk in the first half of the milk to make sure it combines evenly and then continue to pour the rest after.
And if your super talented, unlike me, you can make a latte heart at the end! Any pro baristas please message me because I am still trying to get that latte heart LOL!
