How-to froth up the perfect hot Matchaful Latte

How-to froth up the perfect hot Matchaful Latte

Founder of Simply Real Health, Sarah Doherty, breaks down her favorite way to enjoy a hot Matchaful latte in just a few easy steps.

Sarah's favorite, and the most common way to drink matcha is in a almond milk matcha tea latte, or a latte “shot” with half the liquid. A little matcha powder, mixed with hot water, steamed milk of your choice and a touch of sweetness.

Blended, with her other favorite tool of all time, a milk frother.

Traditonally, matcha is made with a bowl and whisk. But, as she says "this works like a charm everytime for keeping it easy and simple."

How to Make A Matcha Latte At Home: 

Makes 1 serving

1/2 teaspoon Matchaful's Emerald Grade powder (start with this, then you can work your way up to 1 teaspoon)

1/4 cup hot water

1/4 cup hot (clean ingredient) almond milk (like this one from New Barn), unsweetened cashew milk (like this one from Forager), a clean almond milk “creamer” like Nutpods or organic whole milk.

1-2 teaspoons maple syrup or honey

In a saucepan, heat water first. When hot, add matcha powder and froth. Add maple/honey (if using), then milk of your choice. Froth again, and serve hot.

For more tips, see Sarah's iced homemade cashew milk version here, or a quick iced version how-to here.

other fun ideas: in baked goods like cookies, cakes and doughnuts (don’t worry, recipes coming), in green smoothies, or sprinkled over rice, quinoa or oatmeal. 

Sarah also loves adding in some grassfed butter some days (as a mini meal replacement), or her new favorite addition if you follow her on snapchat, this grass-fed collagen peptide powder.
