Sip on this Iced Strawberry Matcha Latte! Infused with berry flavor, sweetened with honey, made with dairy free milk and full of lasting non-jittery green tea energy!
This is what dreams are made of.
Specifically, if your dreams include icy cold, ultra-creamy, fruit infused tea things that are part dessert but equal part 100% healthy like this Iced Strawberry Matcha Latte.
It is full of green tea flavor (which brings mega sustainable energy and antioxidants!), is sweetened naturally with pure honey, and is infused with REAL strawberry flavor from real strawberries.
It is worthy of being the first thing you think of in the morning and it has your back with hours of non-jittery matcha energy to power you through the day.
Let’s talk matcha for a minute?
Matcha is an ultra healthy green tea powder! There are different grades of matcha from culinary to ceremonial, and for any drink application, you will want to reach for the ceremonial stuff. It is the most flavorful and least scrunch-you-face-up bitter.
The real way to whip up this drink is with some special matcha tools like a scooper, whisk, sifter and matcha bowl. This undoubtable creates a beautiful, tasty, elegant cup of tea, but I am team blender all the way.
Since I have yet to master the art of whisking matcha (you’re supposed to do it in an M shape, i think?), for me it is easier, more convenient, and much quicker to chuck the matcha, milk and sweetener in the blender and give it a whirl.
The matcha mixes in without clumps, there are less dishes to clean, and it creates a soft foam on the top of your drink. Which, for a foam lover like me is HEAVEN.
The trick for making the perfect Iced Strawberry Matcha Latte is a dose of patience, aka letting the strawberries and matcha sit in the fridge for a while.
The sliced berries get all cozy with the creamy matcha and infuse it with their sweet berry flavor. It is well work the 30 minute wait.
The end result is not the kind of hit-you-in-the-face artificial strawberry flavor. But it’s also not so soft that it tastes like strawberry infused water.
The strawberry is here. It is ready to party. But it plays well with the matcha tea. They are complement city. Each getting along perfectly with one another.
