You asked for it so here it is. Share a Matcha Green Tea latte with me as I tell you how I make mine for today’s Tasty Tuesday.
There is something so calming and soothing about a hot cup of tea. What makes these Matcha tea lattes even better than a regular cup of tea is matcha powder has more antioxidants in it than blueberries, açaí and broccoli combined.
My first encounter with the green tea goodness was a few years back with the green tea frappe from Starbucks. However, as I read more about it, I realized that there were ways you could make it so much healthier. It wasn’t until the coveted Milk Frothier that I’ve talked about before HERE that I got the notion to make these lattes at home...and often. In my afternoon or evening oasis curled up with a good book, this rich antioxidant goodness is so soothing and yes, sometimes cookie accompanies it.
So here is how I usually make myself mine, 5 easy minutes totally worth your time for the end result! Put this powder in muffins, pancakes smoothies and so much more. One thing I’ve found is Matcha powders are not made equal. Make sure you buy the Classic Culinary Grade. (Buy Here)
Blended a Tablespoon of hot tap water into the 1 teaspoon of Matcha Powder, pie that mixture into your mug.
Microwave the milk in 30 second intervals stirring after each for a total of 90 seconds. Use your frothier to mix until very foamy and frothy.
Pour into mug and stir well. Stir in 1 teaspoon of honey and top with cinnamon if desired. I usually stir in the cinnamon well. Enjoy!
