RECIPE INSTRUCTIONS: Easy Matcha Latte

Total Prep Time: About 3 minutes

Servings: 1

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 Teaspoon Sencha Naturals Organic Matcha
  • 8 ounces hot milk of your choice
  • 1 tsp sugar or sweetener of your choice

DIRECTIONS

  1. Sift matcha powder into hot milk and stir vigorously (sifting prevents matcha from clumping).
  2. Add sweetener of your choice, stir thoroughly, and enjoy!

NOTES

  • Matcha Shot: Instead of sifting, another way to prevent matcha from clumping is to create a “matcha shot”: using a fork or small whisk, vigorously stir matcha with a touch of hot water until a smooth paste forms. Pour hot milk over this paste, stir thoroughly, and add sweetener as desired.
  • Sweeteners: You can use sugar, honey, stevia, monk fruit, even maple syrup.
  • Milk: Any variety will work, but please note that if using skim milk, you may want to add a creamer for a thicker consistency (e.g. heavy cream, half & half, coconut oil)
  • Frother: For best results, use a small electric whisk or hand frother to thoroughly blend all ingredients. You can also use a blender for maximum frothiness and consistency.
  • Ice: For iced lattes, combine all ingredients in a blender and pour over ice. 
  • Whipped Cream: Top off your latte with a burst of whipped cream for an extra flair of creamy goodness.
