How to Make a Matcha Green Tea Latte
Find out how to make a cozy green tea latte with matcha powder and almond or coconut milk. Homemade matcha lattes are so easy to make and a nice alternative to coffee lattes.
I was surprised by how much I enjoyed my first green tea latte, and it was so easy to make. It will definitely be replacing my morning coffee some days. A teaspoon of matcha green tea, some steamed milk, and a little sweetener is all you need. To get my green tea latte foamy on top I used a frother. I also use this fun tool for “kid cappuccinos” which are really just foamy steamed milk.
One of the things I love most about green tea is its ability to boost metabolism and protect against some diseases*. I made this refreshing and purifying iced green tea with slices of cucumber, lemon, and strawberries for you for spring. Both lemon and cucumber help detoxify our bodies, and strawberry adds antioxidants and tastes delicious. I’ve been keeping a jug of this tea in the fridge and sipping it whenever I need a little boost after a workout. It’s like a spa water-tea hybrid.
Which would you prefer – the latte or the fruity detox iced tea?
Detox Iced Green Tea
I like this to be a very watered down tea. If you want it to be stronger, just add more tea powder.
