Vanilla Soy Matcha Latte

Matcha! I can't get enough of you! I love experimenting with this amazingly versatile ingredient. As you may know, my favorite way to prepare matcha is whisked hot, but my husband and I recently hopped on the latte train - woo woo! It's hard to say no to this dreamy, creamy latte with perfect sweetness ;) It's a wonderful treat in the mornings when we're lingering around the house, or great for pouring into a thermos to take on-the-go. You can easily swap out the soy milk for almond or coconut if you wish, and adjust the sweetness to your taste. (Lately I've really been enjoying these with a combo of hemp and almond milk!)

Vegan, gluten-free
Serves 1 (yields about 12 oz.)
Adapted from Plant-Powered Kitchen

1 1/4 cup organic soymilk (or almond, hemp, coconut)
1 tsp. Encha organic matcha (latte grade)
1 Tbsp. maple syrup (more/less to desired sweetness)
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 cup water

In a small saucepan, heat milk over medium heat.
Bring to a very light boil, whisking occasionally (this creates froth!)
Add vanilla and maple syrup. Whisk to combine, and turn off heat.
Meanwhile, heat 1/4 cup water. In a bowl, combine water and matcha. Whisk briskly back and forth to dissolve matcha (I use a bamboo whisk for matcha).
Carefully pour milk into matcha and enjoy!
