This has to be my new favourite hot drink of the season but it is definitely here to stay. The best recipe for an instant mood and energy booster.
- 5 gm Matcha powder
- 30 ml Hot water
- 200 ml Hot milk
- 2.5 gm Maple syrup
- 2 gm Matcha powder (dusting for the top)
In a small bowl add the matcha powder and pour over the hot water. Whisk the powder into the water making the motion of a line. Once it has dissolved whisk the mixture vigorously for a min.
Pour 3/4 amount of the hot milk in a serving glass and pour 1/4 of the remaining milk in a container and froth the milk until it has doubled in volume. I used a milk frothing whisk, it took approximately a minute.
Pour the maple syrup into the serving glass filled with milk and stir. Pour over the matcha.
Spoon over the milk foam and dust with matcha powder. Serve immediately.
- I personally like having it without any sweetener but the addition of maple is a personal choice you could also use honey and increase the quantity if you like.
- You can leave the milk foam out but I like the light texture it adds to the drink.
