Basic Matcha Latte Recipe
1. Make Matcha Paste:
Scoop 1 heaping tablespoon of Matcha into a 12 oz. cup. (For 16oz latte, use 2 tbsp.)
Add a splash of water.
Mix with a whisk until smooth.
2. Fill 12 oz. cup with milk or milk alternative.
(For best results with a milk alternative, use unflavored, unsweetened soy milk!)
3. Steam: Pour into steaming pitcher and steam.
Iced Matcha Latte
Instead of steaming, just pour over ice!
Attention Latte Artists!
You will need to adjust the basic Matcha Latte Recipe: Reserve several ounces of the milk in Step 2 to steam separately; add to steamed Matcha Latte at the end to create your latte art.
MAKE IT SWEET
Nature's Matcha: Add 1-2 tsp. of natural sweetener like agave, honey, maple syrup or simple syrup.
Vanilla Cream Matcha: Add 1 pump of vanilla syrup before steaming. Top with whipped cream - extra points for a light dusting of Match on top for decoration.
Tropical Matcha Latte: Add a pump of syrup like pineapple, mango, coconut, guava, or passion fruit before steaming.
