Ingredients

Ingredients

  • Matcha Powder – green tea leaves that have been ground into a powder. Culinary grade Matcha Powder will work for this recipe but you can also use ceremonial grade premium matcha if preferred. 
  • Sweetener – use your preferred sweetener.
  • Hot Water – roughly 175F or 80C, the ideal temperature for whisking matcha.
  • Ice – standard ice cubes.
  • Milk – can also use your choice of milk or milk alternative. Coconut Milk, Almond Milk, soy milk, oat milk etc.

Flavor Add Ins

Strawberry Syrup, Vanilla Extract, and Simple Syrup open up a world of flavor variations, giving you the freedom to experiment and find your preferred taste.

🍵 Matcha Note

Since the color isn’t a significant factor in this recipe, use Culinary Grade Matcha, offering the same great taste at a more affordable price point compared to ceremonial matcha.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I use tea bags instead of matcha powder?

No, using tea bags instead of matcha powder is not recommended. The taste is not the same, and tea bags won't produce the strong and distinctive flavor that matcha powder provides.

Can I make this Iced Matcha Latte with a dairy-free milk alternative?

Yes, absolutely! Whether you prefer almond milk, soy milk, oat milk, or any other non-dairy option, feel free to use it in this recipe to suit your dietary preferences.

What's the difference between culinary grade and ceremonial grade matcha?

Culinary grade matcha is typically used for cooking and baking, as it has a slightly bitter taste and is less vibrant in color compared to ceremonial grade matcha. On the other hand, ceremonial grade matcha is the highest quality and is intended for drinking as a tea. It has a smoother, milder flavor and a vibrant green hue.

Are there any health benefits associated with drinking matcha?

Certainly! Matcha is brimming with health benefits. It's loaded with antioxidants, offers a mild caffeine boost, contains chlorophyll for detoxification, and has L-theanine for relaxation. My Iced Matcha Latte is a tasty way to enjoy these advantages!

  1. This one is my fave because it’s simple, tasty and keto, but not heavy. Lots of others are keto, and tasty, but high cal and dessert like. Thanks!
