Shelly’s Vanilla Matcha Latte
July 17, 2023
I love the smoothness and clean energy (no jitters) that matcha provides and especially look to it when I need deep focus. Green tea is one of my daily rituals that I also recommend to my clients. A matcha latte is a fun and more indulgent way to change it up. This version has the option of dates to sweeten and collagen for additional protein and benefits. Be sure to switch to decaf or mind your caffeine intake if you're sensitive to it.
- Prep: 5 mins
- Yields: 1 12 oz serving
1Heat water for tea.
2Add matcha powder to a small bowl or mug and whisk with 1/4 cup hot water for 15-30 seconds to aerate. Set aside.
3In a high powered blender, combine milk, dates or maple syrup, vanilla, and collagen if using it. Blend for ~30-60 seconds. Strain if you do not want any bits of dates.
4Pour the sweetened milk into your serving glass and pour matcha on top.
For iced matcha, just add ice to your glass before adding milk and tea.
For a hot matcha, warm up the milk first and be careful opening the blender lid with hot liquid in there.
For more of a room temp matcha, follow recipe as is.
