Matcha Oat Milk Latte
A clean stimulating buzz that lasts longer than coffee and doesn’t let you down like coffee, matcha oat milk latte gives you an energy boost without the crash. So easy to make with a handheld electric milk frother.
Servings: 1 serving
- 1 teaspoon matcha green tea powder
- 2 tablespoons very hot water but not boiling, 180 degrees F. (see note)
- 1 tablespoon maple syrup
- 1 cup oat milk
Put matcha powder in a 2-cup measuring cup, a frothing pitcher, or a large narrow bowl. Be sure your container is large enough so the mixture can foam to its full potential. Use a spoon to mix the matcha, hot water and maple syrup into a smooth paste without any lumps. (Some afficionados sift their matcha before adding water prevent any lumps.)
Heat the oat milk to just below boiling, either in a saucepan stovetop or in a microwave oven. Pour ¼ cup of the hot milk into the matcha mixture and pour the remaining ¾ cup milk in your coffee mug or cup of choice.
Insert the milk frother into the matcha mixture and give it a good whir, 30 seconds or so, until the mixture foams to about double in volume. Immediately pour over the foam into the hot milk in the mug and serve. If the green foam loses volume, and it does fairly quickly, just give the foam another whir with the frother.
- Use water below boiling temperature—boiling water can burn the delicate tea and make it bitter.
- This recipe makes a large frothy cupful. If you don’t want to drink it all in one sitting, you can refrigerate the extra matcha latte and reheat and re-froth later.
