When I cut had to quit drinking coffee a few months ago, I wanted something more than just black or green tea each morning. Something fun, yet still healthy. That’s when I discovered matcha green tea and started making a Matcha Green Tea Latte each morning.

Oh my goodness. Talk about one of the best lattes ever.

This simple little recipe is a game-changer, my friends. A Matcha Green Tea Latte provides a natural energy that’s not overstimulating like caffeine and it’s delicious. It’s like heaven in a drink.

Another thing: this latte recipe is incredibly simple. You can make it in less than 5 minutes.

I know, I know. I’ve read how you’re supposed to treat matcha green tea carefully and stir it “just so” as to ensure the perfect flavor. Um, no. I don’t have that kind of time. I just want my morning latte and I want it now. Don’t you?

Quick-and-simple. Got it.

Matcha green tea is like green tea on steroids; one cup of matcha tea is like 10 cups of regular green tea. And you’ve heard about how drinking green tea can boost your metabolism and help with weight loss, right?

Matcha green tea can also increase energy levels and not just a quick boost, but sustained energy for hours. Isn’t that what every mom needs?

There’s a ton more benefits to matcha green tea – you can learn about some of those here and here.

The first and most important ingredient is matcha green tea power. This is my favorite brand though I’ve also used this one with great results.

You’ll also need your favorite dairy-free drink of choice (I prefer almond milk), vanilla extract, and stevia drops.

This is the stevia I use. (One bottle will last a long time – I still have half my bottle of stevia and I’ve used it almost daily for 4 months!)

About the sweetener: you will need something because matcha green tea is very bitter. I never sweeten my drinks, but even I have to have a little sweetener to combat the bitterness.

I’ve tried different types of unrefined sweeteners in this matcha green tea latte recipe, including maple syrup and honey, but I always come back to the stevia drops. The stevia seems to pair the best with the matcha green tea, adding a subtle sweetness without taking anything away from the delicious green tea flavor.

How to Make a Matcha Green Tea Latte:

Warm 2 cups of almond milk on the stove or in the microwave until it reaches your desired temperature. You don’t want it too hot (definitely not boiling.)

I usually heat my almond milk in a saucepan on high for 4 minutes.

Pour into a blender, preferably one of those single-serving cups. I have a Ninja blender and love it! (It’s not as high powered as a fancy Vitamix, but it’s not nearly as expensive either.)

Note: If you don’t have a blender (or it’s a pain to use every morning), you can put all the ingredients in a tightly capped Mason jar and shake well.

Add 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract…

…1/2 to 1 teaspoon matcha green tea powder (I recommend starting with less, then increasing as you determine what quantity works for you).

And 3-5 drops of stevia.

Blend for 3-5 seconds, just enough to get a bit of froth on the top.

Open the lid slowly as the pressure can cause the hot liquid to splash out.
