This iced matcha green tea latte is really easy to make and will taste just as good as better than any matcha latte you can get a coffee shop. Plus, it will be even healthier since you control the quality and type of ingredients used. I have used a variety of different non-dairy milk, but my favorite combo is almond and coconut for this. I tend to drink mine unsweetened, but if that’s not your cup of tea (<– ha! see what I did there? heh heh :)), then feel free to add your favorite sweetener in there. When I do have it sweetened, I will use a little stevia or a little maple syrup.

Did you guys read the blog posts I wrote about matcha tea recently? If you did, you know that I am in love with this bright green tea, and now that the weather has heated up, I’ve been craving the cold version of my superfood matcha latte recipe. I am really excited to share this super tasty, super satisfying iced latte recipe with you today. It’s perfect to get you going on a hot morning or give you a gentle pick-me-up in the mid-afternoon.

If you’re new to matcha green tea and don’t know much about it, check out my post about The Amazing Health Benefits of Matcha Green Tea to learn all the details about this wonderful tea — health benefits, types of matcha, and more. I also talked about how I finally was able to add some caffeine back into my diet without any negative side effects and matcha has been my go-to tea since then.

The first iced matcha latte I ever had was from Starbucks®. As a matter of fact, that was the first time I had ever had matcha in my life. I immediately fell in love with the earthy, grassy flavor of the tea. It tasted so much better than other types of green tea to me for some reason. I quickly became addicted and was drinking this almost daily. This was during a time in my life where I wasn’t really paying much attention to the amount of sugar, dairy, etc. that I was consuming.

Once I went dairy-free and largely sugar-free in 2012, I had to give up my favorite Starbucks® drink. Dairy and I do not get along very well and I try to keep my sugar intake down in an effort to help fight my chronic inflammatory health conditions (among other reasons). Thankfully green tea, and especially matcha, is great for fighting inflammation and supporting the immune system so making the change was not that hard.

Oh, and if you want to boost up the nutrition even more, feel free to add some greens (either fresh or powdered) to it. Whiz a little extra in the blender and it will come out smooth and silky. Yum!

Ingredients

Instructions

    1. In a small saucepan, heat your water until boiling.
    2. Place your matcha green tea powder and the boiling water together and whisk until smooth. Set aside and let sit for 5-10 minutes. This gives the matcha time to brew and release all the rich flavor and beneficial nutrients.
    3. Place the matcha mixture and the rest of the ingredients in a blender and blend until combined and frothy.
    4. Pour over ice and serve immediately.
    5. Enjoy!!! 🙂

Notes

Recipe Tip: You can make a big batch of this and store it in the fridge for up to 5 days. The mixture will separate a little, so just give it a good shake before serving. But this is a great way to have your iced lattes when you're in a hurry!

Not Ready for Green Tea or Caffeine?

If you are still deep in your healing journey or just avoiding caffeine for other reasons, then I have a great option for you: herbal “coffees”! I developed these herbal blends when I had to give up coffee completely and needed something to take its place. Coffee, for me, was always a bit of a spiritual experience. It was something that calmed my soul, especially during a time in life where I was needing a lot of extra soothing.

When I gave up coffee completely, I tried to focus solely on herbal teas as a replacement, but the taste, aroma, and mouthfeel was beyond lacking for me. That’s why I decided to turn to herbs that could give me a similar experience as a freshly brewed cup of coffee. Thankfully such herbs exist and I created a handful of blends that did just the trick. It took a lot of experimenting, but I finally got the proportions right and had a new cuppa joe to soothe my soul. 🙂

I now have these recipes (the very ones that I used when I sold this line of herbal “coffees” online), in my DIY Herbal Coffee Substitutes Blending Guide. Not only do you get access to the recipes I created, you get a TON of info about coffee, caffeine, health, and the nutrition of these herbs. Oh, and did I mention that there are a bunch of coffee shop inspired beverage recipes too? If you’ve got a favorite, then it’s likely in there.
