RECIPE INSTRUCTIONS: Easy Matcha Latte
Total Prep Time: About 3 minutes
- 1 Teaspoon Sencha Naturals Organic Matcha
- 8 ounces hot milk of your choice
- 1 tsp sugar or sweetener of your choice
- Sift matcha powder into hot milk and stir vigorously (sifting prevents matcha from clumping).
- Add sweetener of your choice, stir thoroughly, and enjoy!
- Matcha Shot: Instead of sifting, another way to prevent matcha from clumping is to create a “matcha shot”: using a fork or small whisk, vigorously stir matcha with a touch of hot water until a smooth paste forms. Pour hot milk over this paste, stir thoroughly, and add sweetener as desired.
- Sweeteners: You can use sugar, honey, stevia, monk fruit, even maple syrup.
- Milk: Any variety will work, but please note that if using skim milk, you may want to add a creamer for a thicker consistency (e.g. heavy cream, half & half, coconut oil)
- Frother: For best results, use a small electric whisk or hand frother to thoroughly blend all ingredients. You can also use a blender for maximum frothiness and consistency.
- Ice: For iced lattes, combine all ingredients in a blender and pour over ice.
- Whipped Cream: Top off your latte with a burst of whipped cream for an extra flair of creamy goodness.
