Grain-free, Dairy-free

I am not joking when I say that I’ve made thisย Iced Almond Milk Matcha Latte every single day for the last 8 days.

It’s been my summer life-force for so many reasons… 1) It tastes incredible…it’s a creamy slightly sweet green tea delight… 2) It gives me such a great boost of energy…and 3) It literally takes only minutes to make.

All you need is culinary grade matcha tea powder, almond milk, honey, hot water, and ice. Oh and a mason jar. I find it much easier to make this matcha latte in a mason jar.

To back track quickly, I’ve always been a huge matcha tea drinker but I have only ever made it hot… which is delicious but it’s 90 degrees here in Florida and I’m just not in the mood for hot drinks these days.

I’m also not always the biggest fan of coffee because I find that it really dehydrates me and gives me the jitters.

Which is something that matcha tea does not do! Matcha tea gives me an almost zen-like energy caffeine boost without any of of the coffee caffeine jitters.

Plus, matcha tea is SO good for you.

Seriously, I did a bit of research and found that matcha tea is full of antioxidants, it boosts your metabolism, helps your body detox, relaxes the body and mind, boosts concentration, helps lower cholesterol and blood sugar, and is full of vitamins and minerals.

Some say it has the most amount of antioxidants out of any super food, which I swear is the reason that I feel so great after drinking it.

If I am being honest, though, my favorite reason for loving matchaย is because it tastes DELICIOUS. Plain and simple.

Add in some almond milk and honey and the flavor of matcha is enhanced THAT much more. Try this Almond Milk Matcha Latte, and you’ll see what I mean.

To make it, put 1 teaspoon of culinary grade matcha green tea powder into a mason jar. I always use Kiss me Organics Matcha Tea, and personally find that it tastes better than every other type of matcha that I have tasted. The color is also incredibly vibrant.

Then pour 1/2 cup of hot water into the mason jar, put the lid on the jar, and shake everything together.

Next, add 2 tsp of honey ( you can add more or less, but I find this amount to be perfect), and shake the mason jar again.

Add 1 cup of almond milk, and give the mason jar another hard shake.

Then fill the mason jar with ice, put the lid on top and give it a shake until all the liquid feels cold.

That’s it!

Thisย Iced Almond Milk Matcha Latte can serve one… so you can drink this all by yourself from the mason jar itself OR it can serve two. Just pour it into two cups and serve.

My husband and I like to share it, but if I really needed a boost, I’ll drink it all by myself.

Enjoy!

PS- I discovered Elmhurst Almond Milk recently and it is the best tasting almond milk that I have found… just a PSA that I had to share. ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. I’vet yet to try matcha but this drink recipe definitely makes me want to buy a bag ASAP! Looks like the perfect creamy and cozy drink to end the day with!

    1. You should try it!! It’s such a great tea option. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Mmm! This sounds so yummy and healthy! I am such a huge fan for anything matcha right now. I can’t wait to try this recipe out. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    xo, Chloe

    1. So am I!! Matcha baking has been occupying a lot of my time, not gonna lie. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. I’ve heard so much lately about those home made lattes but I never wonder how people do it! And now I know haha all you need is matcha tea powder ๐Ÿ˜€ I am gonna have to get some and try it!

    1. Yes! Grab some matcha tea powder and try it out. It’s so easy!

  4. Beautiful pictures, and amazing recipe! I love iced drinks (especially with this summer heat) so I’ll be sure to try this! ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Thank you! Let me know how you like it!

  5. I gotta say, I’m curious to know if it can provide a boost like you said, equivalent to coffee but without the jitters.

    I’m a coffee nut – I always wonder if the tea scene can be as good…

    1. You should try it! I read somewhere that a cup of matcha tea had half the caffeine as a cup of coffee. I don’t think you can feel the caffeine boost the same way with matcha, but there is no crash which is nice. I definitely notice that it helps me concentrate.

  6. Love matcha – perfect for the hot summers too

    1. I couldn’t agree more!

  7. This recipe was made for me! ๐Ÿ™‚ We always have matcha and almond milk on hand so yay I have all the ingredients I need to make this. I will definitely make me some very soon. Looks delightful!

      1. Hi Dominique! We made this today and we LOVED it ๐Ÿ™‚ So quick to make and so refreshing! We will definitely be making this all summer long. Cheers!

    This looks so good. I’ve never tried matcha, but I would definitely give this a try. I wonder if it would be good with coconut milk, too??

    1. I haven’t tried it with coconut milk, but I’ve tried it with regular milk and it was great. I think it would work with any type of milk. ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. Nice, will for sure try, I am new to using matcha so looking for ways to use it.

    1. It’s great in baking and lattes. <3

  12. This looks and sounds delicious! I’m all for iced beverages that taste great plus give you an energy boost, so this sounds like a fantastic way to mix up my iced coffee routine.
