Strawberry Matcha Latte

Strawberry Matcha Latte is a green tea latte that has been gaining popularity. While it is a non-carbonated beverage, it still has the same great taste as any other latte. The strawberries and the matcha powder give the drink sweetness, making it an excellent choice for any time of the day.

What is Strawberry Matcha Latte?

Strawberry matcha lattes are a fun and delicious way to get your daily dose of matcha, strawberries, and milk.

If you’re looking for a healthful drink that will also leave you feeling full and satisfied, look no further than the strawberry matcha latte. It’s perfect for breakfast or an afternoon pick-me-up. Plus, it’s pretty much impossible to mess up!

What makes this matcha latte special is that it has two layers of flavor. The first layer is the sweetness of the strawberries, which adds a nice touch to the drink.

Milk

For a fantastic taste, milk is an essential ingredient in making this Latte. It not only adds flavor but also acts as a binding agent which helps the matcha powder mix well with the milk, hence giving you that rich and creamy taste.

Matcha Powder

Matcha powder is a green tea powder that has many health benefits. It’s often used in smoothies, lattes and other drink recipes because of its high antioxidant levels. You can also use it to make your own matcha latte at home!

Vanilla Extract

The main use of vanilla extract in making this matcha lattes is to add flavor. It’s a simple way to take your matcha latte from “good” to “wow.”

Vanilla extract is made by soaking vanilla beans in alcohol, which allows the flavor to be extracted into the alcohol. You don’t want too much alcohol in your matcha because it will change the taste of your drink and give it an unpleasant aftertaste, but a little bit adds a lot of flavor.

Honey

Honey is a great addition to any matcha latte, because it adds a little bit of sweetness without adding too much sugar. It also brings out the flavor of the strawberries in the latte, and helps to balance out the taste you get from the matcha powder.

Frozen Strawberries

Frozen strawberries are used in making this lattes to provide a smooth texture and a sweet taste. They also add color to the drink, which helps it look more appetizing.

Toppings

The toppings for a strawberry matcha latte are endless. Here are some of our favorite combinations:

Strawberry and mint: To make this aromatic blend, just take a few fresh strawberries and top them with some fresh mint leaves. The combination is refreshing and herbal, with a hint of sweetness from the berries.

Cinnamon: This is another one that you can’t go wrong with—just take some cinnamon sticks or powder (depending on your preference) and sprinkle it over your latte to give it an extra kick!

Ginger: Ginger adds an element of warmth to any drink, so it’s no surprise that it’s great for this one too. Try grating some fresh ginger over the top before adding milk—it’ll add a subtle spiciness that will wake up your taste buds in the morning!

Instructions

  1. In a medium saucepan, combine the strawberries, sugar, and water over medium heat. Cook until the strawberries have softened and broken down for about 10 minutes.
  2. Strain out the solids using a fine-mesh sieve and pour the juice into a large measuring cup or other vessels. Add enough water to equal 1 cup of liquid (you should have just under a full cup).
  3. In a small pot over medium-low heat, bring the water to a simmer. Add matcha powder and stir until dissolved. Remove from heat and set aside for 5 minutes to cool slightly.
  4. Pour 1/4 cup of hot water into your mug and let sit for 30 seconds before pouring out (this will warm up your mug).
  5. Add ice cubes until it reaches your desired level of coldness, and then fill with 1/2 cup of matcha mixture and top with strawberry juice mixture (the ratio should be approximately 1:1).

Tips

The Strawberry Matcha Latte is a delicious, easy treat for any occasion. But did you know that there are some easy ways to take your matcha lattes to the next level? Here are a few tips and tricks to make your strawberry matcha latte even better.

  1. Upgrade the milk! One of the best parts of this drink is its beautiful color, and it’s hard to get that without using the right milk. We recommend using full-fat coconut milk, which gives you a rich, creamy texture. You might be tempted to use soy milk or almond milk—but don’t! They don’t have enough fat content to make the right shade of pink.
  2. Add a little sweetness! If you find that your latte is too tart or bitter, try adding a teaspoon or two of raw honey or maple syrup at the end of your preparation process (don’t add too much or it will change the taste of the drink). The sweetness will also help balance out any bitterness in the matcha powder itself.
  3. Make sure your strawberries are fresh! The fresher they are, the sweeter they’ll be—and we all know what happens when you add sweet things into our drinks: they become even more delicious! So make
