Vanilla Soy Matcha Latte
A creamy and delicious matcha latte made with vanilla, soy milk, and a hint of sweetness.
- 1 1/4 cup organic soymilk (or plant milk of choice)
- 1 tsp. organic matcha powder
- 1 Tbsp. pure maple syrup (more/less to desired sweetness)
- 1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup water
In a small saucepan, heat milk over medium heat.
Bring to a very light boil, whisking occasionally (this helps create froth).
Add vanilla and maple syrup to milk. Whisk to combine, then turn off heat.
Meanwhile, heat water to about 160°F (71°C). In a bowl or wide mug, combine water and matcha. Whisk briskly back and forth to dissolve matcha. (I use a bamboo whisk.)
Carefully pour milk into matcha and enjoy!
