Homemade Matcha Chai Latte Recipe


By on 9/12/2013 10:25:00 AM

A chai latte is my favorite coffee house drink--I drink them warm in the winter and iced in the summer!  I have made my own homemade chai latte recipe for a long time with regular tea--and decided that I would tweak the recipe a bit for use with Matcha tea.  Regular green tea has never been my friend--but, I recently discovered Match green tea powder and really like it.  Since I am really trying to decrease my coffee intake and increase my green tea, I brewed up a Matcha chai latte recipe this morning!

Ingredients for a Matcha Chai Latte
  • 1 c. Vanilla Almond Milk (or Vanilla Coconut Milk or Skim Milk)
  • 1 c. Water
  • 1 tsp. Matcha powder or 1 MatchaDNA Matcha Tea packet
  • 1 tsp. Ground Cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. Ground Ginger
  • 1/8 tsp. Ground Cloves
  • 1/8 tsp. Ground Nutmeg
  • 1 tsp. Light Brown Sugar
  • 2 tsp. Stevia in the Raw
  • 1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
  • Whipped Topping, if desired

Instructions for a Matcha Chai Latte

Dissolve the matcha powder.  Warm the water--but, do not allow it to reach a heavy boil.  Place the matcha into a mug or bowl and pour the hot water over it, mixing with a whisk.  You could probably dissolve the matcha powder along with the spices--but, I like to do it separately.

Combine the matcha chai latte ingredients in a saucepan.  Whisk together the spices, sweeteners, matcha solution, and milk in a small saucepan.  Heat until it just begins to boil and quickly remove from heat.  Add the vanilla extract.  Strain the tea into a large mug and serve.  Straining helps remove bits of undissolved spices and matcha so that the finished drink is smooth and "clean".  

Serve.  Froth if desired, top with whipped cream and serve.

Note:  Matcha is much earthier than other teas--and spices or sweeteners may need to be adjusted to taste.  I like to taste the matcha beneath the spices--but, you may need to adjust to suit your own flavor preferences.
