The Ultimate Matcha Latte Recipe


The Reinvention Of the Humble Latte

You guys know that I love matcha lattes. They helped me kick my coffee addiction for good. I still drink espresso lattes but that is mainly because it is so difficult to find matcha lattes here in Germany. I don’t know why but it is like the whole world is going crazy about matcha and the Germans just don’t want to know about it.

So today I am going to share my recipe and 5 tips on how to get the perfect matcha latte at home.

5 Tips On Getting The Perfect Matcha Latte @ home

Non-diary milk

Choose a non-diary milk that tastes good to you. Coconut and almond milks are perfect to use, but you can also try soy milk. I am not against the diary milk matcha lattes but I personally think that matcha and diary milk don’t mix as well. 

High quality matcha

You don’t have to buy the highest premium matcha for your lattes but don’t get a cheap Chinese matcha-like green podwer – it will have a bitter taste!

Natural sweetener

I personally don’t add any sweeteners to my lattes as the milk already has some sweetness to it. But if you prefer your lattes sweet, then go for a natural sweetener such as:

  • honey
  • maple syrup
  • agave syrup

Milk frother

Foam is a must when it comes to lattes and it’s best created using a milk frother. If you don’t have one, good alternatives are a bamboo whisk or a blender.

Vanilla for a twist

Yes, vanilla flavoured matcha lattes taste amazing! 

And last but not least here is the recipe itself:
