Strawberry Matcha Latte
This strawberry matcha latte is creamy and healthy. Made with plant milk, homemade strawberry syrup, and a touch of sweetness.
Servings: 1 latte
- 1-2 teaspoon matcha green tea powder I will link the one I use in recipe notes
- 1 oz boiling water
- 2-3 teaspoon a sweetener like honey, maple syrup, or sugar
- 8 oz milk I use coconut, but you can use your favorite milk
- 1 cup fresh or frozen strawberries look below for how to make a simple strawberry syrup
In a saucepan over medium-low heat add cleaned and cut strawberries or frozen strawberries.
Add a tablespoon of water and a tablespoon of sugar.
Mash strawberries to release juices with a fork or potato masher. Cook for about 5-10 minutes or until strawberries has released all their juices.
With a mesh strainer, strain the strawberry puree into a bowl and then transfer it into a jar. Set aside.
In a tea kettle heat just an ounce of water. Spoon your matcha powder into a small dish. Pour the hot water over the matcha and whisk with a bamboo whisk or regular whisk. You could also put it in a mason jar with a lid and shake it well. Whisk in your sweetener and set aside.
In a blender blend up your choice of milk and 2 tablespoon of the strawberry puree. Pour this into a tall glass filled with ice.
Pour in your matcha mix, stir and enjoy! See recipe notes for tips and a great matcha powder!
Tips- You can use any extra strawberry puree to make more lattes. Just store the puree in the fridge.
If you don't want to make the syrup you can blend your milk and fruit together and then strain the milk/fruit mix right into your glass.
