Better-than-Starbucks Vegan Green Tea Latte.

HH - green tea latte correct edited

I steer clear of Starbucks.

Sugar, milk, foam, whipped cream, more sugar? No thank you.

But that’s not to say I don’t enjoy a special drink from time to time. I just want one that doesn’t include gross ingredients and that I can sip with peace of mind.

Enter my vegan green tea latte! I don’t have the time to prepare it every day, but when I do make it, it always brings a smile to my face.

Try it and let me know what you think!

Vegan Green Tea Latte

Ingredients:

2 scoops matcha green tea powder

1 cup unsweetened almond milk

1 packet stevia, if desired

Instructions:

Warm milk on stove top until it is almost boiling. Place the matcha powder and stevia in the warmed milk. Whisk thoroughly to get rid of any chunks of powder and enjoy!

    To avoid clumps it is better to add the milk to the matcha slowly

    Don't know that I would call those "gross ingredients." Seems a little heavy handed.

  4. Love matcha tea! I like to add raw cacao to mine, but this sounds yummy too!

    Love matcha!! I have a latte every morning except I use water to mix the matcha — using a bamboo matcha whisk gets out all the clumps easily. Then pour some frothed unsweetened almond milk on top — Divine!!

  6. Sam says:

    Is there a particular brand of matcha green tea powder you recommend? Is it something readily available in grocery stores?

    What scoop? Little scoop…big scoop….medium sized scoop? Love green tea and green tea ice cream so I can’t wait to try this.
