Combine Matcha Green Tea powder with 2 tablespoons of hot water. Stir until you get a smooth paste. Add coconut nectar and stir again to combine.
Divide the mixture between two serving cups. Add about 2 tablespoons of milk in each cup and mix with a handheld milk frother/foamer.
Now, use the handheld milk frother to froth the milk. Mix for 1 minute and pour over the matcha mixture.
A powerful antioxidant and refreshing vegan latte is perfect for all of us looking to replace their usual caffeine-based recipes. It’s based on almond milk which can easily be replaced with coconut, soy, hemp, or rice milk, high-quality matcha green tea powder, and some coconut nectar instead of unhealthy and highly processed white sugar.
Its deep and rich flavor with unique matcha green tea undertones got me addicted to this heart-warming drink and it only takes about five minutes to get everything done – which I personally find quite practical, especially early in the morning when I’m always in a hurry. Give it a try

This recipe will give you two cups of matcha latte. Naturally, if that’s too much for you to drink at once, you can easily reduce the size. For a stronger latte add some more matcha green tea powder. However, if you’ve never tried matcha green tea before, starting off with smaller doses might not be such a bad idea.
Also, adding a few drops of rum extract can be a fabulous trick to highlight that wonderful grassy flavor every matcha green tea powder has. Vanilla extract, on the other hand, will neutralize that specific matcha tone.
Being a huge matcha fan myself, I’m always looking for ways to get the most flavor I possibly can. This really depends on your taste. For this recipe, I have decided to use coconut nectar but a maple syrup is also a wonderful sweetener that fits perfectly with the mixture.
