It’s no secret I love matcha. I’ve been getting matcha lattes since before they were cool. Way back in the day before I cut sugar, I used to get “green tea” (matcha) frappuchinos from Starbucks and they were the bomb. Now, I prefer my matcha hot and with cinnamon! The only place I get it cold is at True Food Kitchen… Their Matcha Horchata is heaven… ANYWAY – I have been attempting to make the perfect cup at home for a while now – and I finally did it!! And now I am sharing it with you! I have linked everything I use in the ingredients list. Enjoy!
| Makes 1 Latte
1.5 cups Almond Milk (frothed with this milk frother)
3 TBSP Coconut Butter
1 tsp cerimonial grade Matcha Powder
2 TBSP Honey
1 tsp cinnamon
Top with a pinch of vanilla bean powder and cinnamon
First, I heat up the milk and coconut butter in a saucepan. I like to get it really hot, but not quite boiling! While that’s happening, I put my honey, cinnamon, matcha and about a teaspoon of the warm almond milk in my mug. I mix that all together well in the bottom of my mug with a fork!! (Those matcha whisks are too expensive and this works juuuuust fine for me!)
Next, I pour my milk + coconut butter into a glass measuring bowl and froth it! Then I pour the frothed milk into my mug and froth that together to make sure the matcha is all mixed!
I use a stick frother from world market, but I have linked one above from amazon!
I hope you enjoy!!
