Ingredients

  • 1-2 teaspoons matcha powder
  • 2 tablespoons hot water
  • ½ teaspoon mint extract
  • cups milk or milk alternative*
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup or agave nectar
  • 2-3 whole mint leaves, for garnish

Instructions 

  • Prep matcha and peppermint: Add matcha powder to a small bowl or mug. Add hot water and mint extract, then whisk well to fully dissolve the dried tea powder into the liquids.
  • Heat milk: Bring milk of choice to a low simmer in a small sauce pan, or heat for 60-90 seconds in the microwave.Mix milk into matcha: Pour the heated milk over the dissolved matcha and mint mixture. Stir with a spoon until completely dissolved.
  • Sweeten (optional): If using unsweetened milk and you would like a sweeter latte, add 1 teaspoon of sweetener of choice (we like maple syrup) and mix until well combined.
  • Garnish (optional): Sprinkle with matcha powder and/or cocoa powder, add a few vegan marshmallows, or a candy cane for a holiday treat. Top with mint leaves.

Notes

  • Recommended tools: matcha set, latte mug and saucer, small saucepan
  • How much matcha to use: You can use 1 or 2 teaspoons of matcha powder for one single serving latte, depending on taste and how much caffeine you want in your latte. We recommend starting with 1 teaspoon and then adding more to taste after making the latte.
  • *Recommended milk: We like to use oat milk or pea protein milk in our lattes as they are both great tasting when heated and have a creamier texture than other plant-based milks.
  • Where to buy matcha: we typically purchase daily drinking matcha from our local grocer, however we like to order ceremonial matcha as well (see post for recommended brands).
  • Leftovers + storage: We recommend making each matcha latte individually and not keeping leftovers, for best flavor. However, you can store any leftovers in the refrigerator for up to three days. We do not recommend freezing.
  • Nutrition notes: This recipe uses all plant-based, gluten-free ingredients, so it is appropriate for vegan diets. Nutrition information was estimated using regular oat milk nutrition data. This latte is high in naturally-occurring antioxidant catechins from matcha (nutrition information reviewed by dietitian Kristina Todini, RDN).
