This delicious Oat Milk Matcha Latte takes just minutes to make, and it's so healthy for you!
Ladies and gentlemen, let me introduce you to my latest obsession: oat milk matcha lattes.
Without fail, I have had one of these matcha lattes almost every night after dinner, and I am 100% serious when I say it is the best part of my day. Once the dishes for dinner are done, you can usually find me curled up on the couch, matcha latte in one hand, chocolate in the other hand, and Netflix on the TV.
Matcha lattes and I go way back, and I have been working on perfecting my favorite recipe for a while. I've tried all different kinds of milk—almond milk, whole milk, coconut milk, you name it—but I've determined that oat milk is by far the most delicious.
I hope you try this recipe out for yourself to see what you think!
Health Benefits of Matcha
If you've been around for a while, you know that I am a huge matcha fan.
Matcha is a finely ground powder made from green tea leaves, and it has a strong, delicious flavor. When consuming matcha as opposed to normal green tea, you actually get a higher concentration of the nutrients from the leaves because of the powder form.
Besides being rich in antioxidants, matcha can boost your metabolism and enhance your concentration. Many people have also noted that drinking matcha tea gives them more energy throughout the day. Delicious taste + lots of health benefits = a win in my book!
While you can buy matcha powder in many grocery stores, I like to order mine on Amazon. This organic matcha powder is my favorite, and I have reordered it a few times. Since you only use a small amount for each latte, it can last you quite a long time.
Tips for Making This Latte
Here are a few tips to get a perfect latte:
- Use a milk frother to get that perfect consistency. I love to throw all the ingredients into a milk frother and mix it together. The frothing motion heats the latte up, so it's the perfect temperature once finished! If you don't have a frother, you can easily use a blender or a pot on the stove instead—just make sure the matcha powder dissolves completely before serving.
- Adjust the amount of matcha powder to your liking. If you're new to the wonderful world of matcha, I recommend following the amounts listed in the recipe. But, if you like your matcha lattes a bit stronger, feel free to increase the amount of matcha powder by a teaspoon or two.
- Substitute the honey with a different sweetener if desired. I personally love adding honey to this latte for that extra touch of sweetness, but it's not necessary. Enjoy the latte as is, or add in a few splashes of maple syrup or agave syrup instead.
Common Questions About This Latte
It's best to store matcha powder in an airtight container in the freezer. This cold, dark space helps preserve the tea and prevents any color or flavor degradation.
Absolutely! Just keep in mind that matcha does contain caffeine, so you should always consume it in moderation.
I personally love using oat milk for this latte, and I always opt for the Oatly brand. I find that it froths really well, and the flavor is unbeatable.
