While I mostly just limit my caffeine intake to a cup of coffee in the morning, I sometimes like to enjoy a cup of tea in the afternoon, and more so lately since I’ve been spending most of my time staring at my laptop writing. Since it’s been a little hot these days, I’ve been craving a cold drink and that’s when I remembered the green tea lattes I used to enjoy with one my friends a few years ago at a Barnes and Noble Starbucks. Since I already had some matcha green tea powder in my pantry, I decided to make my own, which not only saved me a trip to the coffee shop, but also a few dollars 😉
Ingredients (makes 1):
- 2 tsps matcha green tea powder
- 1/2 tsp sugar (optional)
- 1 Tb warm water
- 1 cup almond milk (or your favorite type of milk)
- several cubes of ice
Dissolve the matcha powder and sugar in 1 Tb of warm water. Add half the milk, stir, add ice, add the second half of milk and stir again. I found this is the easiest way to get it mixed, but it might depend on the type of glass you use.
This is perfect on a hot summer day 😉 Enjoy!
