This matcha latte recipe from the Healthy Home Economist is enjoyably sweet and creamy without any sugar and can be made with your choice of dairy or nondairy milk. Matcha has detox benefits from the chlorophyll in the green tea powder with no jitters thanks to the slow caffeine release.
1 tsp + pinch matcha powder preferably organic and traditionally made
1/2 cup hot filtered water
1/2 cup whole milk (we used fresh almond milk)
1-2 tsp date syrup
1 large mug
1 half pint mason jar or whisk
Add 1 teaspoon matcha powder to a large mug
Pour in hot water and stir to mix well.
Pour milk into a small pan and heat on medium-high.
While milk is heating on the stove, stir the date syrup into the mug with matcha tea blended with hot water.
When the milk is hot and starts to foam, add to a half pint mason jar, screw on the lid and shake vigorously to add additional froth. Alternatively, you can whisk the hot milk in the pan to add more foam.
Pour frothing milk into the mug and stir briefly.
Sprinkle a pinch of matcha powder on the top of the latte and serve immediately.
