Guys, I've totally jumped onto the whole Matcha bandwagon. I'm sold hook, line, and sinker. It is DELICIOUS.
Yes, matcha can be a bit of an investment. But it's totally worth it in my mind.
So if you're looking for an iced latte that doesn't make you want to do ten million jumping jacks and twenty million pushups (at the same time), an iced matcha latte could be just the thing for you. Plus it tastes pretty awesome.
So I came up with a way to have my cream and drink it too (so to speak): use frozen cream instead of water! Not only does it keep the fat ratio nice and high, it makes for a very smooth drink.
My one caveat: Matcha is definitely an acquired taste. My husband thinks it tastes like grass. My sister thinks it tastes healthy. Me? I think it tastes fantastic.
All of that to say: don't get mad at me if you try matcha because Erica told you to, and then hate it. But I don't think you will...it's absolutely sublime. Just make sure you get the good stuff!
If you have any questions about Matcha, don't hesitate to ask!
Iced Matcha Latte
Recipe by Erica Kastner | 5 mins | Serves 1 | PRINT
1/2 cup heavy cream, frozen in an ice cube tray,
1/2 cup whole milk,
1 teaspoon matcha green tea powder,
1/8 teaspoon pure vanilla extract,
1-3 teaspoons pure maple syrup (depending on how sweet you like your drinks),
Place all ingredients into a blender and blend until completely smooth. You may need to scrape down the sides of the blender with a spatula a couple of times to make sure all of the match gets dissolved.
