Notes

Cooking Tips

  • Do not pour boiling water onto the matcha powder – it can adversely affect the taste, making it bitter. The water should be no more that 80C/ 175F
  • If you are drinking matcha for health reasons keep in mind that cow’s milk can neutralise the beneficial properties that matcha boasts. In this case, definitely opt for the chocolate coconut matcha latte version
  • In theory, you can use any non-dairy milk in place of the coconut, but the final taste and texture of the drink will vary somewhat. Coconut milk offers a fresh, creamy texture and still froths up nicely, making it ideal for a chocolate latte
  • If you are a hardcore matcha fanatic, then you can, of course, increase the strength of the matcha in this recipe very easily just by upping the amount of matcha powder used
  • These chocolate matcha latte drinks can also be served cold – poured over ice on a scorching day, they are so refreshing

Storage and Reheating Instructions

The drink can be reheated at a later time. Simply allow the chocolate matcha to cool to room temperature, then pour into a bottle or jug, seal and store in the fridge for up to 48 hours. Reheat either in the microwave on on the stove-top.

Make it Vegan

To make this drink vegan you must ensure that the white chocolate is vegan as well as the milk
