Dairy-Free Matcha Latte

This dairy-free matcha latte with almond milk is vegan, paleo- and ket0-friendly (make the sugar-free option), and is super easy to make. If you’ve been wondering how to make a matcha latte, here’s the scoop!

Matcha lattes have been trending across the country for a few years now with every hip coffee shop, cafe, and health food store serving up their spin on this crazy-amazing cup in the hopes of cashing in on the matcha tsunami. This is my version of the ubiquitous fave, and I am going to risk sounding like an arrogant jerk by proclaiming that it is better than anything I’ve tasted in any of the fancy hipster places in NY, L.A, Sydney, or London. And, it’s cheaper, and really easy to make.

How To Make an Amazing Matcha Latte

To make sure your matcha latte is super creamy and frothy like it’s been made at a coffee shop, use homemade almond milk.

Homemade almond milk makes the latte so much creamier. I soak my almonds before I go to bed, and then blend up matcha heaven in the morning. If you don’t want to take the extra time to make your own almond milk, you can, of course, make this latte with commercial almond milk, cashew milk, or coconut milk.

Use Your High-Speed Blender To Make Lattes

I love high-speed blenders for so many reasons. But, one of the greatest things about them is their ability to heat ingredients. So, you can just throw all of the ingredients into your high-speed blender, and let you blender heat and froth the latte. So, your blender is like your barista!

For those of you who don’t have a high-speed blender, don’t fret. Just blend the mixture, and then transfer it to a small saucepan, and heat on the stove top on low heat for a few minutes until piping hot.

Don’t miss making this matcha latte. It is absolutely incredible, and if my promise of flavor fever isn’t grabbing you, match is a health-promoting hero.

The Health Benefits of Matcha

Like traditional green tea, matcha powder is loaded with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and anti-inflammatory agents for detox, immunity, and energy. And, unlike green tea leaves or tea bags (where if you over steep them they can blast you bliss with bitterness), matcha has a really pleasant robust flavor. And, matcha powder contains about 100 times the epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) of regular brewed green tea. Containing caffeine and the amino acid L-theanine, matcha muscles up for metabolic mojo, too.

Have I sold you yet?

Just grab your blender, and give this matcha latte a spin. You won’t be sorry.
