MATCHA GREEN TEA LATTE WITH ALMOND MILK

 
 

 
 
It's finally cooling down here in Los Angeles and it's making me want lattes more and more.  One of my favorite lattes is Matcha Green Tea.  Of course you can go to your favorite coffee and tea place to order it for $4.00 each, but why not make it at home.  Its super easy and tastes just as good.  Don't get me wrong, love going to coffee and tea houses.  There's something about the whole process of going there and hanging out with friends and enjoying a cold winter day.  But this is definitely perfect for those days you don't feel like venturing out.
 
Here's the run down...
 

MATCHA GREEN TEA LATTE

Ingredients:

 
1 teaspoon matcha green tea powder
12 oz almond milk
1 tablesppon agave nectar
 
I used my French Press for frothing the milk...
 
 


 
 
I love the color of Matcha Green Tea.  Pur 1 teaspoon of the Matcha Green Tea powder into your mug.  Warm the almond milk over the stove until its hot but not boiling.  Pour the almond into the French Press and pump the handle up and down several times until the milk is frothed.  Pour the milk into your mug and stir well.  Add in the agave (you can use more or less depending on your desired sweetness) and stir until everything ins mixed well.  Now it's ready to drink! 
 
Enjoy!!

This looks great! I will have to make it for the kids during their Christmas break from school. I checked out the link for the matcha and that one doesn't look very good. Is there a difference between ceremonial grade and stone ground matcha? I did a search online and found one at http://www.kaimatcha.com that looks good. What do you think?

Thanks!

Thank you Charlotte, I will probably have to do a little more research on that but from what I understand, it's not that one is better than the other but that they use different flavored leaves for ceremonial grade. Ceremonial grade focused on the taste and color when blending the leafs. I'll have to check out other Matchas myself. It was the first one I came across. Let us know how the latte comes out!

I was wondering which brand of matcha powder you used? is it considered raw vegan? thanks!

Hello Destination Deets,
I am not 100% sure of Matcha is raw. I know a lot of raw foodies who drink tea. A good way to go would be to buy organic. One of my favorites is DoMatcha which you can buy at Whole Foods as well as on Amazon. Enjoy! Felicia
