This classic matcha-latte recipe can be customized to your tastes and is always delicious.
The older I get, the more I’m convinced that one of life’s simplest pleasures is looking forward to the next morning’s warm and cozy drink. And this winter in particular, I’ve found myself often trading in my usual coffee for a vibrant matcha latte to start the day. ♡
I’ve always loved the ritual of making a matcha latte just as much as the drink itself — sifting the gorgeous green powder into a bowl, whisking it rhythmically into a paste, swirling it together with frothy steamed milk, and savoring that deliciously warm and earthy first sip. It always feels like such a simple yet sacred process, and it’s one that I’ve come to really enjoy making at home over the last few years. It’s a delicious, nutrient rich drink that is comforting and layered with flavors. You may also like Treat yourself to a special treat.
Making your own matcha latte at home is a great way to be able to control the amount and type of sweetener you add, if any. Starbucks matcha lattes are a bit sweet for me. You can use any type of milk you like, but make sure to adjust it to matcha.
