The powder that I use for this recipe looks like this:
Matcha is a powdered tea made from shade-grown green tea leaves. It is known for its exceptionally high concentration of antioxidants, which are thought to play a role in its potent health benefits.
Matcha is a type of green tea made from the powder, not the leaves, of the tea plant.
It has a very mild taste, so you can easily drink it without having to add much flavoring. The trick is to make sure that the powder you’re using is of the highest quality.

Matcha Latte ingredients
There are not many ingredients needed for this amazing recipe. This recipe calls for just three ingredients, from which two are already in most households. I believe everyone has water at home and also milk or a milk alternative.
For this recipe, you are going to need the following items:
- Matcha powder
- Milk or milk alternative
Because this is a vegan-friendly recipe, I’ll be using soy milk to brew my latte. This milk alternative will give off a great taste as my base layer to this healthy drink.
You can also choose to use any other milk alternative like almond milk, rice milk, coconut milk, and cashew milk. But there are so many alternatives. Choose what flavor you want to use and maybe even have at home already.
For this recipe, you can opt to add a shot of espresso to your latte as well. This will give you more caffeine for the moments you need it most. Now with all of that out of the way, let’s get into the recipe:
Preparing the Matcha Latte
Matcha is an incredibly healthy beverage that tastes delicious. If you’re looking for a fun and unique way to start your day, then this is the drink for you!
You can check out the recipe down below. To give you a better understanding of the step-by-step brewing guide, I’ll show you how to make this recipe using photos.
The first step is getting your cup ready with the 2 grams of Matcha powder in it:
Then, add the boiling water and stir until there are no clumps to be found. You want this to be super smooth:
Finish the drink with foamed milk. This can also be heated milk without any foam; this depends on your preferences.
All there is left to do is give it a nice stir to combine all the delicious flavors and enjoy!
You can find the recipe to this amazing recipe below:
- 2 grams of Matcha powder
- 20 ml (2 tbsp) of hot water
- 1 cup (240 ml) milk of your choice
- Shot of espresso (optional)
- A sweetener like honey, maple syrup, fine sugar (optional)
- Start by grabbing two cups; one of these cups will be used to stir your Matcha powder and water together. The other cup is for the drinking of your Matcha Latte.
- Boil your water.
- Add your Matcha powder into one of your cups and add the boiling water to it.
- Stir the mixture until there are no lumps to be found.
- Heat the milk of your choice. I went with soy milk for this recipe.
- Optionally, you can foam the milk as you heat it. This will get you some ultra fluffy Matcha Latte.
- Pour the Matcha and water mixture into your drinking cup and add the milk on top.
- Stir everything together. If you would like to add a sweetener, this is the time to do so.
- Would you like to add a shot of espresso to your Matcha latte? Pour the espresso in slowly to keep as many milk bubbles intact.
- You are now finished with your Matcha Latte!
You can use a small whisk to stir the Matcha and water mixture if you feel like a spoon doesn't remove the lumps enough.
If you feel like it, you can sprinkle some extra Matcha powder on top of your finished drink.
This is a vegan-friendly recipe. I used soy milk for this recipe as this is what I had on hand. Feel free to use any other milk alternative out there, or you can use 2% milk if you feel like it. This milk will also give you great foam!
Please note: the calorie count is based on one cup of joy milk and without the use of any sweeteners.
