Iced matcha lattes (a.k.a. green tea lattes) are one of my favorite mid-afternoon pick-me-ups these days. And while it’s certainly a treat to run out and pick one up down the street at a cafe, it can get pretty pricey for an afternoon caffeine boost. So recently I decided to start making my matcha lattes at home, which is a whole lot less expensive, y’all. They run about $4-$5 each from a cafe, but I picked up a can of matcha powder for around $16 at Publix (and found another brand for $12 at Fresh Market). I’ve made about 5 drinks with it so far and still have over half of the matcha left.

How I Make My Matcha Lattes

Personally, I like to mix my matcha powder with coconut milk. It’s a little sweet and a slightly thicker than my usual almond milk that I use for iced coffee and smoothies. The biggest issue that I have run into with matcha powder is being able to blend it well. If it’s not mixed well, it will come out grainy with clumps of powder in the bottom. For me, the quickest way to get a well-blended latte is to mix it in the blender. I have this blender, so it’s compact and quick…and it comes out nice and frothy. Here’s how I make mine:

  • 1-1.5 tsp. Organic Matcha Powder
  • 1 cup Coconut Milk (or milk of your choice)
  • Optional: Add a sweetener of your choice.

Add your milk and matcha powder into the cup of your blender. Blend for 30-45 seconds, or until the powder is mixed in well and the milk is a little foamy. Pour it over ice and enjoy!

  • Ohhh my word…this looks and sounds SO good, girl. (Plus your photos make it look delicious too, haha!) 🙂

    I’ve been wanting to try matcha for awhile now, and this seems like the perfect recipe to start with! I bet this would make a great smoothie too (if you added in some fruit) or added into an acai bowl with granola, chocolate chips, fruit, etc. So many good options. 🙂

  • You had me at matcha. It is literally my favorite thing in the world. I always get matcha lattes and matcha milk teas. Delicious!

  • I recently just tried these green tea powder packets from Starbucks that this man passed over to me! Turns out their not sold her in the U.S but they’re in Japan 🇯🇵

  • I’m a huge matcha fan, but I’ve never been good at making it myself.. the whisking is what gets me aha. This sounds like something I would definitely enjoy, though. Definitely giving this recipe a try. 🙂
