How to Make Matcha Latte at Home

You know those cups of goodness called Matcha Latte that they sell at Starbucks for over $4.00? Well I love those things and I can't seem to get enough of them. In fact, I used to frequent Starbucks just for these lovely cups of goodness at least three times a week for many many years. I must have spent a fortune on them. At least until now.

I got smart and I've learned how to make my own, I no longer have to make the trek to the coffee shop to curb my matcha latte cravings. It's easy enough to make really and I don't know why I didn't learn how to make them earlier. For the longest time, I thought there was some kind of magic trick to making them. I also didn't have a milk foamer to create that lovely foam on top.

Guess what? I found out that you didn't need one. You can simply use a whisk. Really! It's really simple but somehow it never occurred to me. Use a whisk and bowl to make foam. I mean is it really that simple?

Fortunately the answer is yes. The only other ingredients you'll need are a good matcha powder, milk and sugar or sweetener of choice. That's it! No magic ingredients or tools necessary.

Makes 1 serving


1 cup milk
1 tablespoon good quality matcha powder
Sweetener of choice
Hot water


Put matcha in a cup. Add a little hot water and mix until powder is dissolved. Set aside. Heat milk in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Stir occasionally so milk doesn't scorch.
Pour milk into a bowl. Whisk vigorously to create foam.
Pour milk into the matcha. Use a spoon to prevent foam from going inside. Finally scoop out the foam on top and sprinkle some matcha powder for extra flavor and color.
Enjoy and drink while it's hot!

If you want to see me in action, check out my Matcha Latte Video on YouTube. It will show you just how easy it is to make and you can watch me goof up at the end as well. :) Seriously though, watching the video makes it easier and you'll see how creating the foam with a whisk is really super easy.
