TIPS ON MAKING THE BEST PINK MATCHA LATTE RECIPE
USE A SMALL HAND HELD BLENDER, LIKE A SMOOTHIE BLENDER TO MAKE THE PINK LAYER. Small blenders work really well for blending up powders with milk for iced lattes.
REFRIGERATE A CAN OF FULL FAT COCONUT MILK. Add about a tablespoon per half cup of milk to make a dairy free cold foam.
USE A HAND HELD MILK FROTHER TO MAKE THE COLD FOAM. Cold foam is really easy to make if you have a milk frother.

Pink matcha tastes slightly earthy from the matcha and subtly sweet from the pink pitaya. It is a cold and refreshing drink!

The coconut cream I used is just the hard portion of the milk from a refrigerated can of full fat coconut milk.

You can use any kind of milk that you want! I used vanilla soy milk in my pink matcha latte, which makes it totally dairy free.
