Have you tried Matcha Green Tea Powder? It has a distinct flavor that can be quite addictive. Combined with milk and sweetener and served up in a matcha green tea latte, it is totally addictive.
Matcha Green Tea Powder has both caffeine and a healthy dose of antioxidants. I find breakfast is the perfect time to load up on both! I’ve heard of people who have actually given up coffee and become exclusive matcha drinkers.
I’m far from a break-up with my morning cup of joe, but I like to flirt with matcha just fine.
To make a really great homemade latte, you gotta get the AerolatteHand Held Milk Frother
A frother costs under $20 and I’ve had mine for almost 10 years. It has saved me tons of money since I can now make all my favorite coffee drinks at home. Chai lattes, peppermint lattes, pumpkin lattes and gingerbread lattes now all get made at home using real, whole food ingredients, for pennies on the dollar for what I’d pay at Starbucks.
If you don’t have one, put it on your wish list!
Once you start making this super simple matcha green tea latte recipe for yourself, you might find yourself in an on-going relationship with this awesome coffee alternative.
- 1 teaspoon matcha green tea powder
- 1/4 cup hot water
- 3/4 cup milk (cow's, soy, or almond)
- honey to taste
- Dissolve matcha green tea powder in hot water and stir vigorously until frothy.
- Heat milk just until hot. If you have one, use a frother to whip the milk until foamy.
- Remove from heat.
- Add milk to tea and stir in honey to taste.
I don’t limit my lattes to just the morning. If I know I’ll have an afternoon that requires running the kids to and fro and here and there, I like to brew up a Matcha Green Tea Latte in a to-go cup to keep me going.
What’s your favorite time to drink a matcha green tea latte?
