Matcha Latte

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.

Equipment

  • Small bowl
  • Matcha whisk (you could use a regular whisk if you don’t have it)
  • Serving glass
  • Small container
  • Milk frothing whisk (check the write up above for options)

Ingredients
  

  • 5 gm Matcha powder
  • 30 ml Hot water
  • 200 ml Hot milk
  • 2.5 gm Maple syrup

Optional

  • 2 gm Matcha powder (dusting for the top)

Instructions
 

  • 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.

Notes

  • 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.
