As a rule, I don’t drink caffeine often but matcha is low in caffeine so is a much healthier alternative. With this easy recipe, you can have coffee shop matcha lattes at home. Ingredients It’s important to start with good quality matcha. Vegavero’s matcha is 100% vegan, organic and natural, with no added additives or flavourings. It is organically cultivated from the Kagoshima area in Japan. I chose coconut milk as this is what a lot of coffee places use but I’ve seen people recommend cashew and rice milk as well for creaminess. Some people even use 2 different kinds of milk (half of each). For sweetener, I used with maple syrup as people recommend it in matcha lattes for the subtle sweetness.

Add matcha powder, sweetener and hot water to your mug and whisk with a bamboo whisk or a blender.
Once the matcha is dissolved, heat your dairy-free milk. I steamed mine with a coffee machine, but you could also heat in the microwave or in a saucepan.
Pour dairy-free milk into your mug and feel free to do some latte art. *I have not mastered this art yet and need way more practice so I just drink as is. Taste and add more sweetener if you wish. Enjoy!
