This copycat recipe shows you how to make your own Starbucks Iced Matcha Latte at home with just three ingredients.
I love this drink sooooooo matcha.
Okay, that’s it for the matcha puns. I promise!
I’m a simple gal when it comes to my caffeine drinks and generally not a lover of crazy coffee drinks or over the top Starbucks creations.
However, I fell in love with this drink many years ago when I worked for a production company here in Los Angeles. I’ve never been able to shake my love for it.
These days I make it at home several times per week.
It’s super easy to make and all you need is milk (whichever kind you prefer), matcha powder, and vanilla syrup.
I personally prefer the caffeine buzz I get from matcha versus coffee. No jitters and I’m more focused. Some people even use it as a dietary aide because it suppresses your appetite.
To mix the green tea latte, I like to use my handheld milk frother. It is hands done one of my favorite kitchen tools that cost less than $10. I also used it to make my Lucky Charms Cereal Milk Latte.
If you don’t have one, mixing with a regular ol’ spoon works great.
Update: I’m adding a few tips and techniques that can help you make your Matcha lump free!
