It’s Matcha time all the time. The reason why matcha has been so popular is due to its versatility. You can have matcha iced, hot, with water or in your next green tea ice cream, a matcha smoothie or pastry. The possibilities seem endless.
Another product that has been buzzing in recent months is oat milk. For vegans and for those that are not, plant-based milk alternatives have become extremely popular. It’s naturally free of lactose, nuts, soy, and gluten if made from certified gluten-free oats Not to mention, it’s delicious!
So since it’s summer, we thought it would be necessary to share our iced matcha with oat milk to combine these two ever-so popular flavors. If you are looking for a power morning drink or a pick-me-up, this will make a smart refreshing choice.
1 tablespoon of Matcha
Start by purchasing your matcha. Our authentic grade of matcha is straight from Japan and is available to purchase from our website or instore. But no matter what matcha you use, make sure that it is a high quality grade.
How much ice depends on how diluted you want your drink to be.)
1 tablespoon of organic sugar or stevia
Any sweetener of your choice can be replaced with sugar.
1 cup of Oat Milk
You can use any milk substitute of your choice (almond milk, soy milk, coconut milk, etc.)
Mason Jar (optional, any cup or container can substitute)
Pour 1 cup of oat milk into a mason jar or cup. Put aside.
Pour 1 tablespoon of matcha into a bowl. We first want to make sure that the matcha isn’t lumpy we have to dissolve it first to make sure it’s just as smooth as the milk. Heat up warm water with a teapot. Slowly pour in your hot water into the bowl with your matcha and whisk. You don’t want to add a lot of water. Only add enough to loosen the powder. This step you will have to play by eye. You will know you added enough when you see tiny bubbles develop on the perimeter of your bowl.
After you are done whisking, pour your matcha into your mason jar that contains the oat milk.
Add ice and your preferred sweetener.
Close your mason jar (or if you have a cup, stir) and shake up the contents. Your latte will froth up and be ready to enjoy!
