Iced Matcha Latte Recipe
Preparation Time: 5 minutes
- 1 teaspoons Planet Organic Matcha Powder
- 2 tablespoons of hot water (not boiling)
- 1 cup of milk (dairy or plant-based alternatives like almond, oat, or soy work well)
- Ice cubes
- 1/2 - 1tbsp Sweetener of choice (honey, agave or maple syrup)
Preparation of Matcha Paste: In a bowl, sift the Planet Organics Matcha Powder to remove any lumps. Add the hot water and whisk using a bamboo whisk or a spoon until you get a smooth paste. This step ensures that your matcha is lump-free and has a creamy consistency.
Sweetening: If you prefer your latte sweetened, add your chosen sweetener to the matcha paste and mix well.
Milk Magic: In a separate container, froth your milk. If you don't have a frother, shaking the milk in a sealed container or blending it for a few seconds can also create a frothy texture.
Assembly: Fill a glass with ice cubes. Pour the matcha paste over the ice, followed by the frothy milk. Stir gently to combine.
Garnish and Serve: For an added touch of elegance, sprinkle a little matcha powder on top or garnish with a mint leaf. Serve immediately and enjoy the refreshing blend of earthy matcha and creamy milk.
There you have it – a delightful iced matcha latte that's both easy to make and a joy to drink.
