This is the second entry in my hot beverage series. I previously shared a recipe for ‘The World’s Best Vegan Pumpkin Spice Latte’. This week, were are going green with ‘The World’s Best Vegan Matcha Latte’.
I have a confession. I hated matcha the first 10 times I tried it. I’m not sure when or why it “clicked” for me, but now I can’t get enough of it! If you haven’t had it before, you might want to ease yourself in to this recipe by using a smaller amount of matcha powder. Before you know it, you will be inhaling the stuff. Just kidding, don’t do that.
The creamy mouthfeel of this warm beverage comes from homemade cashew milk. I teach you to make homemade cashew milk in this previous post. It’s super easy. If you don’t want to make cashew milk, you can use the milk of your choosing. It won’t be ‘The World’s Best Vegan Matcha Latte’, but it will be good.
If you want to make it very special, top it with some whipped coconut cream and sprinkle with matcha and coconut sugar. That is some next level deliciousness! This recipe is enough for 2 small cups or one big mug!
- 1.5 cups cashew milk
- ½ cup water
- 2 tsp matcha powder
- Maple syrup or coconut sugar to taste
- Put all ingredients in a high-speed blender on high until warm.
- If you don't have a high-speed blender, you can whisk in a pot over medium heat until warm.
- Top with coconut whipped cream if desired.
