I love matcha lattes (also known as green tea lattes). They aren't popular here in the UK (at least not in the coffeeshops I frequent, not even Starbucks!) and matcha is very expensive to purchase. Of course, I whined about it to my mum and she sent me all the essentials from David's Tea (love you, mum!)
     My favourite matcha beverage is an iced soy matcha latte (usually with vanilla or some form of yummy sweetener) so I'm going to spread the green love and share my recipe with you!

 Iced Soy Matcha Latte with Vanilla 
makes one 16oz (500ml) beverage

Ingredients
  • Soy milk (or your milk of choice - I used Alpro, Silk is also a good brand) just under 16oz
  • Ice cubes (optional)
  • 1tbsp maple syrup (or your sweetener of choice)
  • 1tsp matcha
  • 2-3tbsp hot (not boiling) water

To Make
  1. Fill a 16oz glass with soy milk, leaving space at the top
  2. Add some ice cubes
  3. Stir in flavouring of choice 
  4. In a separate bowl combine matcha and hot water
  5. Whisk together with a matcha whisk until smooth (it may take some time to smooth out all the lumps - it's worth taking the time to do, trust me, no one likes chunky matcha)
  6. Pour the now liquid matcha into your glass
  7. Stir to combine and enjoy!

      I've had to limit myself from this delicious treat to conserve my matcha supply which hasn't been easy!
