Matcha Green Tea Latté

Matcha is full of powerful antioxidants from whole green tea leaves, plus vitamin C and L-theanine (which keeps you calm and focused). This may not be the most traditional, or ceremonial, way to make matcha but it's an easy at-home preparation that tastes great.

  • 1 teaspoon matcha powder
  • 3 ounces hot water
  • 1/2 cup milk I prefer homemade almond milk, but you can use regular milk or cashew milk as well
  • 1 tablespoon organic agave or raw honey


  • Sift the matcha powder into a tea cup. Add the hot water and whisk, either with a bamboo whisk (called a chasen) or a small metal whisk.
  • Froth or warm your almond milk. I love my Jura that I bought from Amazon, and I've heard good things about this less expensive Nespresso milk frother. If you don't use homemade almond milk, buy MALK or Califia almond milk. You can add the milk without frothing it, just warm it first (either in a pan on the stove or for 30 seconds in a microwave).
  • Add the milk to the cup and stir in agave or honey to taste.
  • Alternately, you can add the sifted matcha, hot water, milk and agave to a Vitamix and blend to combine on the hot "soup" setting. It makes for a frothy and delicious matcha latte.
