Description

This calming Lavender Matcha Latte is a great way to start your day off on a cozy note. It’s creamy, frothy, and dairy-free!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1/4 tsp dried culinary lavender
  • 3/4 cup (180 ml) unsweetened almond milk, preferably barista blend*
  • 1 tsp ceremonial grade matcha
  • 3 tbsp hot water
  • 1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 11 1/2 tbsp light agave nectar or honey

Instructions

  1. Using a mortar and pestle, grind the lavender into small dust-like pieces.
  2. Add the crushed lavender and almond milk to a small saucepan over medium heat. Let it come to a simmer, but don’t boil it.
  3. Meanwhile, add the matcha and hot water to a small bowl. Use a bamboo whisk to quickly whisk back and forth in an M or W motion until foamy.
  4. Take the milk off the heat and pour in the matcha along with the vanilla extract and agave nectar (or honey).
  5. Use a handheld milk frother to whisk the latte until foamy. Pour into a mug and enjoy!

Notes

Almond Milk: We recommend using a barista blend since they’re better at frothing and don’t have a “burnt” taste when heated. The texture is also thicker and richer than regular almond milk.

For a smoother drink, sift the matcha before adding the hot water.
