- Add the ice cubes to a sealable jar or container.
- Add the matcha powder and top the jar off with cold water.
- Shake vigorously until no matcha clumps remain. Enjoy!
- To make an iced matcha latte, use equal parts cold water and dairy-free milk of choice, seal and shake until smooth, or fill the jar about half way with water then top off with cold frothed plant-based milk such as almond, soy, coconut or oat.
Use 1 tsp matcha powder the first time you make this. If you want it stronger, increase that to 1.5 tsp and then finally 2 tsp. If you’re sensitive to caffeine, I’d recommend sticking to 1 tsp.
If you like your matcha with a hint of sweetness, add 1-2 tsp maple syrup, honey or agave, or sweeten to taste with stevia for sugar-free matcha.
You can also add matcha powder and dairy-free milk to a blender, blend on high for 30 seconds and then pour over ice for a quick and easy, frothy iced matcha latte.
The amount of ice, water and matcha powder doesn’t have to be exact. Something like 4-7 ice cubes and 1 to 2 cups water is great. You can use less ice if you prefer. You’ll find what you like best the more you make this.
A basic iced matcha contains zero calories, adjust accordingly if you add milk or sweetener.
