This has been my favorite caffeinated drink for years now. And since it got warm outside, I have been making it a cold latte pretty much every day for the past 2 months.
Ingredients You'll Need
- Matcha powder. Use high-quality ceremonial matcha for the best result.
- Oat milk. If you want that foam you get at Starbucks, you need to buy a barista oat milk. You can also use vanilla oat milk.
- Sweetener of choice. We like maple syrup or honey, but you can use any sweetener. Sugar, agave, dates, etc. will all do the job. If you want to keep this recipe sugar-free, feel free to use stevia.
- Salt. It may sound weird, but salt really brings out the sweetness of this drink.
- Ice cubes. For making this matcha iced latte cold and refreshing. Skip it if you want it hot.
How to Make Oat Milk Matcha Latte
Start by adding matcha powder, salt, and your sweetener of choice to a small bowl. Pour hot water and give it a good mix, until most of the matcha has dissolved.
To a blender, add plant milk alongside the matcha mixture. Blend on high for 30 seconds.
To a glass, add 5-6 ice cubes and pour the matcha latte on top. Enjoy immediately!
My Best Tips
- Use high-quality matcha powder for the best flavor. Use ceremonial-grade matcha, not cooking-grade matcha.
- Make sure to use hot, not boiling water. Pouring boiling water over matcha will change its flavor and color.
- You can make this recipe even without a blender. Simply pour the matcha mixture into a glass of milk, add a few ice cubes and you are ready!
Does matcha have caffeine?
Per serving, matcha has more caffeine than regular green tea, but less caffeine than coffee.
However, matcha has a couple of advantages over coffee, because it's high in antioxidants and amino acid count. This is part of the reason why when drinking matcha, the caffeine release in the blood is slower. This gives more of a steady and prolonged energy boost, rather than an immediate high.
- Fridge: Transfer matcha to a jar and refrigerate for 1-2 days. Keep in mind that the color may change a little and that's okay. You know it's bad when it smells funny.
- Freezer: This recipe does not freeze well. However, you can freeze it in ice cubes and use them for your next matcha iced latte, instead of regular ice. The ice cubes will keep up for 1 month.
