My obsession with matcha began two years ago when I came across it in the tea aisle. I decided to pick up a box of matcha green tea because I was curious about it and wondered if it was similar to regular green tea. The first few times I tried it, I was unsure about it, but then Starbucks started selling an iced matcha green tea latte version last year and that’s when I knew this would be my favorite way of drinking it. Starbucks version isn’t the healthiest and the reason why I wanted to start drinking matcha was for the health perks so I decided to create a healthier version.
This delicious and creamy Iced Matcha Green Tea Latte is lightly sweetened with a subtle hint of vanilla. I made this using unsweetened vanilla almond milk, but feel free to use the milk you have on hand. This recipe is so simple to make at home and the perfect make-ahead drink so you can have it whenever you want!
Iced Matcha Green Tea Latte Recipe
- 1 tsp of Matcha Powder– my fave
- 1 cup (8 oz) of coconut milk
- honey or agave (if needed)
- almond milk (or any kind of milk you have on hand)
- ice cube trays
Step 1. In a blender, combine 1 heaping tsp of matcha powder, blend with 1 cup of coconut milk, you can add some honey or agave if needed. Note: Blending with coconut milk is more preferable because it mixes really well with the matcha. Sometimes iced matcha can be clumpy if not mixed well enough.
Step 2. Freeze matcha in ice cube trays.
Step 3. Remove a couple from ice tray and put them in a glass, add some almond milk and mix it up.
Step 4. Sip and Enjoy!
I’ve been sipping on these iced matcha green tea lattes all summer long so they didn’t last in my freezer. They’re so delicious! 😀
