What’s your go-to drink when the weather’s warm? I’m partial to a strong iced coffee in the day, or a chilled beer when the sun drops. But recently, I thought I’d try whipping up an iced matcha latte for a change. And you know what? It might well be my new summer favourite!
This iced matcha latte recipe only needs 4 ingredients. It’s super quick to make (it’s quicker and easier than an iced coffee). Plus, it’s got the great health benefits of matcha tea: tonnes of antioxidants, low caffeine and boosts metabolism. Oh, and it tastes so good. Winner!
Iced Matcha Latte Recipe
- Matcha tea powder
- Milk or milk alternative*
*I’ve tried this recipe with oat milk, almond milk and regular cow’s milk. Each one imparts a slightly different flavour. But honestly, they all taste really good! So just use whatever you normally keep in the fridge.
What to do
1. Fill a glass with ice cubes and pop it in the fridge to chill. While it’s cooling, move on to the next step.
2. In a small mixing bowl, add a few drops of water to half a teaspoon of matcha powder. Then it’s time to get whisky! Give the powder a good stir, until it forms a loose paste. Feel free to add more water if you need to. It’s best to use a proper matcha whisk for this (they make it so crazy easy to whisk), but you can just use a fork instead.
3. Take your glass from the fridge (it should be nice and chilled now). Add some fresh ice if needed. Fill the glass 3/4 with milk.
4. Add half a teaspoon of sweetener, and give it a gentle stir to dissolve it.
5. Finally, pour over the matcha mixture. Give it a gentle stir to create a cool gradient effect (cos you gotta get that Instagram shot, right?! 😉 )
The great thing about this iced matcha latte recipe is that it allows me to drink matcha in the heat. I’m a big matcha drinker (check out my turmeric matcha latte recipe). But warm drinks in the summer sun is a no-no! So this is the perfect solution. 🙂 Hope you love it as much as I do!
