So for those of you who may or may not know me, I am #matchaobsessed. Matcha has become the craze of 2018 and is not going away in 2019. Nothing says trendy like an Instagram post of a 7$ latte, but why spend the money when you can make one that tastes the exact same at home?
So here’s what you’ll need:
So I use the Sunfood Superfoods Matcha. I got mine from Whole Foods but they sell it on Amazon, Vitamin Shoppe, etc.
You can use any type of milk that you’d prefer, but I don’t drink any dairy milk so I use any type of almond milk I can find. My preferable choice is Wegman’s brand. I usually get the unsweetened version because I like to sweeten it on my own.
Then this is totally optional, but I like to sweeten mine because regular matcha can be suuuper bitter. I like agave because it blends better than honey and it has lower calories than honey.
Last, this is optional as well but it is super helpful to have a milk frother. Not only does it blend everything super well, it also literally froths your milk.. who would’ve thought. I got mine off Amazon for a low price and it is totally worth it.
Now to make the latte, its super simple, just get about a tablespoon of HOT water and a teaspoon of matcha. Blend those together with your milk frother until they’re nicely combined. Then, add your almond milk and sweetener to taste and blend again until your latte is frothy. Add ice to make it an iced version or keep it warm. So so easy and so delicious!
