Matcha Latte Love



Starbucks (Austria) serves soy matcha green tea aka super matcha. 
When I was studying for an exam the past 4 weeks I went to Starbucks almost every day (bye bye hard-earned money). When you study from 9am to 8pm you just need a stimulant and a relaxant. Matcha is both. It is such a perfect coffee substitute! AND: it is detoxing, contains antioxidants, boosts metabolism and burns calories. 

Need I say more? 

Didn't think so...

I got matcha for cooking by Aiya. Thanks again to Sabine for sending me my first green tea powder!!

 



Instantly I received the green tea powder I made my very first matcha soy latte! 

OMG! So freaking delicious! NO Starbucks anymore. Homemade it is.

And trust me, you will become addicted too! 



MATCHA GREEN TEA LATTE

Recipe

1 tsp matcha for cooking by Aiya (did you know that vegan guru Attila Hildmann uses their products too?) 
1 tsp maple syrup
250 ml soy milk or any other milk 
milk-frother



Directions

Bring soy milk to a bare simmer. Add maple syrup. Then slowly whisk in green tea powder and start creating a foam with a milk-frother. The milk froth works perfect with soy milk. I think I heard it is because of the texture...I use a milk-frother like this


So instead of coffee I sip on my green tea latte every morning. 

In the next few weeks I will try new green tea-recipes. What about matcha pancakes? Or cupcakes? Or breakfast jars? Smoothies? Iced green tea latte? 

Will keep you birdies updated :)
