You’ve probably seen the matcha lattes (also called green tea lattes since matcha is made from the powdered leaves of green tea) at coffee houses, and that’s cool because matcha definitely has benefits, but unfortunately most use sugary syrups and flavorings, or add sugar to their matcha powder. Instead of a sugar-laced latte, we recommend trying this version made with Shakeology.
Our version of a matcha latte starts with Vanilla Shakeology (which now includes matcha!), and then we add additional matcha powder for flavor and color. You’ll find a little matcha goes a long way! So consider using your leftover matcha powder for making other cold/hot beverages like this Matcha Pink Drink or even baking with it as with this Green Tea Ice Cream.
When heating up matcha, be aware that it can get bitter quite easily. So when making tea or other hot beverages, try to avoid using scalding hot water, which can cause the powder to taste bitter.
