Iced Matcha Green Tea Latte #DairyMonth

Day 2 Recipes...


My Offering...
This iced matcha green tea latte is one of my favorite sweet treats. Okay, admittedly, I don't have much of a sweet tooth. But I love making this for an easy "dessert" on a busy weeknight.


Just a quick note about Matcha. Matcha is "powdered tea." Unlike drinking other tea when you infuse the tea leaves in water and, then, strain out the leaves, with matcha, you are drinking the finely powdered leaves whisked into hot water. So, spring for the best quality of matcha that you can. There's culinary grade and ceremonial grade. I use ceremonial grade if I'm whisking and drinking; I use culinary grade for baking and cooking.

Ingredients makes 1 latte

  • 1 t matcha green tea powder
  • 1 C milk
  • 1 t honey
  • Also needed: a lidded mason jar, whisk



Procedure 
In a glass jar, place the matcha and the honey. Pour in the milk and stir with a spoon to break up the clumps as best you can. Place the lid on the jar and shake. The more you shake, the more froth will be developed.  Open the lid and give another stir to completely dissolve the matcha. You can pour the latte into another glass if you like...I prefer to have fewer glasses to wash! Enjoy.
