Matcha Soy Latte Recipe

It’s Matcha time! Now I know that I am a little late to the trend but I have recently been absolutely loving substituting my morning coffee for a delicious Matcha Soy Latte made at home. If you don’t know already, Matcha is not a cheap item to buy in raw powder form or as a drink. However, this recipe will save you at least a little bit of money as you can make a delicious and creamy Matcha Latte yourself! This recipe does not require you to have the proper whisk used traditionally in Japan. Also as I am not an expert on this topic, I will not be telling you which Matcha to buy and how to determine whether it is good quality! I myself am a complete beginner, thus I think this recipe is great for those of you that are also just dabbling in the world of Matcha Green Tea!

Ingredients:

This recipe serves 1 gorgeous cup of Matcha Latte.

  • 1 tsp Matcha Green Tea powder
  • 80ml of almost boiling water (at 80 degrees celsius)
  • 120ml of Soy Milk
  • Optional: 1 tsp Coconut Sugar or other sweetener of choice

Materials:

  • 1 cup or mug
  • 1 medium size bowl
  • Whisk
  • A small Sieve
  • A milk frothing pitcher (or a mug/bowl)
  • Optional: hand held milk frother

 

 

Method:

  1. Begin by sifting the 1 tsp of Matcha powder into the bowl.
  2. Pour in about half of the hot water into the bowl and begin to whisk the mixture.
  3. Once the mixture is completely homogenous and no lumps remain, pour in the other half of the hot water and whisk together.
  4. Set this mixture aside and prepare to froth the soy milk. There are a variety of ways that you can froth soy milk, however, I will be explaining how you can do it without any fancy equipment: heat up the soy milk either on the stove or in a microwave. The soy milk should be hot but not boiling. Pour your hot soy milk into a medium sized bowl and begin whisking vigorously for 3-5 minutes. The soy milk will eventually become more bubbly and frothy. Although this technique requires no special milk frothing gadgets, it will not be as effective as using a milk steamer machine or a hand held milk frother.
  5. Pour your matcha mixture into your cup or mug. If you want a sweeter Matcha Latte (TIP: this is more pleasant if you are new to Matcha), then mix in your sweetener of choice.
  6. Lastly, carefully and slowly pour in your frothed up hot soy milk. Use a spoon to place the milk foam on top. Sprinkle a little cinnamon or matcha powder through a sieve onto the foam for decoration.
  7. Enjoy!
