Mocha Matcha Latte

The best part of making your own mocha latte is you know exactly what you’re getting… no iffy ingredients or sickly-sweet syrups.

A mocha latte is made by simply adding chocolate to your favorite latte recipe. We’ve made this mocha matcha latte extra chocolate-y by using our unique ceremonial-grade chocolate-flavored matcha powder, although traditional match powder would work as well!

Elaborate latte recipes are often delicious but can also be a labor of love. Thankfully, this matcha latte is simple, easy, and also fun to whip up.

Chocolate matcha powder

 To get the rich chocolate flavor, all you need is to warm up your milk of choice, chocolate chips, and a microwave-safe jar. Add the chocolate chips to the warm milk and shake until fully combined and melted. You’ll be left with the most delicious chocolate milk ready to be frothed and added to your matcha.

You’ll need:

  • Matcha powder: We suggest using our chocolate matcha powder for this recipe, but traditional matcha green tea powder will work as well.
  • Chocolate chips: Semi-sweet chocolate works well, but you can also experiment with dark or milk chocolate chips as well.
  • Milk of choice: Whole milk or a plant-based option like coconut, almond, or soy would all work well.
  • Hot water: Matcha tea can be easily burned by hot water (leaving you with a bitter taste). 175-185℉ is ideal.
  • Sifter: Sifting your matcha before adding it to your cup is key for a clump-free matcha latte.
  • Electric frother: Keeps things quick and easy!
