Vanilla matcha latte

You can easily make this recipe plant-based by opting for almond or oat milk. If you’re craving something cold to cool you off, simply swap hot water for cold water, skip heating up your milk, and top with ice. We love that matcha is so customizable and can be switched up to match your mood. 

Using pure vanilla extract (not imitation) is essential in this recipe. Skip the artificial vanilla syrups and stick with the real stuff! 

What is matcha? 

Vanilla matcha powder

Matcha is a type of green tea that has been ground into a very fine powder. Tea leaves are shaded for the last few weeks before being harvested, which increases their chlorophyll and antioxidant content.  Our vanilla matcha powder is made with the real essence of vanilla bean and works perfectly for this recipe. The vanilla essence is a rich compliment to the umami-packed matcha powder. 

Here’s how to make an at-home vanilla matcha latte: 


2 teaspoons vanilla matcha powder

1 cup milk of choice

1/2 cup hot water (175-180℉)

½ tsp vanilla extract

Brown sugar to taste

Optional: Top with whipped cream. 


  1. Sift matcha into a cup and top with water. Whisk until matcha is incorporated, and there are no more clumps. 
  2. In a separate cup, mix brown sugar, vanilla, and milk. Microwave milk for 30-60 seconds until warm. Froth well. Pour the frothed milk over the matcha. Enjoy!
