Matcha Coconut Latte

Matcha Coconut Latte

February 15, 2018

Unlike steeped tea, matcha is made by grinding the entire tea leaf into a powder. Because you consume the whole leaf, it has approximately 10x more nutrients than regular green teaWe, of course, love it because it tastes good.

This latte is super easy. It’s just two ingredients (and a tiny bit of sweetener if you want). No fancy barista skills or equipment are required. If you’re going to make a lotta lattes you might want to invest in an official (and very cute) matcha whisk, but a small kitchen whisk will froth it up just the same.

Serves: 1 latte
Ingredients
  • ½ - 1 teaspoon Mystik Cooking Grade Matcha
  • ¼ cup hot water
  • ¼ cup warmed coconut milk
  • optional - sweetner of your choice, to taste
Instructions
  1. Sift your matcha so it is lump-free (optional - I skip this step when I'm too lazy )
  2. Spoon the matcha into a large mug. Add the hot water and coconut milk and whisk briskly, in an up and down motion, until frothy - about 30 seconds or so. (You can also use a small kitchen whisk if you don't have a matcha whisk).
  3. Taste and add additional water, coconut milk, and/or sweetener to your liking. (Maybe just a bit of honey).
Notes
Use light coconut milk, but you could use full fat coconut milk if you want a richer latte.
