Chilled Sweet Matcha Latte

Beverages

Its no secret I adore matcha tea.

It has so many amazing health benefits (read about all of them here).

I usually drink it straight up - only the powder and hot water which can taste a little bitter.

Its also not the greatest warm weather drink..

So I've found a new way to love matcha - a cool, refreshing latte.

This is so easy to make and super yummy.

Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 tsp matcha tea
  • 2 Tbsp hot water (boiled but not boiling)
  • 1 tsp pure maple syrup (you can sub with honey)
  • 1/4 tsp pure vanila extract
  • 1 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • ice
  • sprinkle of cinnamon

Tips & Nutrition

Matcha tea is in a powder form so you are actually consuming the entire tea leaf, not just the water that has been steeped in tea leaves like with regular brewed green tea. That's why it is so much higher in antioxidants. Studies have shown the antioxidants, particularly EGCg, in matcha tea especially effective for cancer prevention and reduced risk of heart disease.

Method

In the bottom of a large glass cup or mason jar whisk the matcha tea with the hot water.

Add in the maple syrup, vanilla extract and almond milk and stir really well.

Throw in a few ice cubes and sprinkle the top with cinnamon.
