Make yourself a beautiful, anti-oxidant rich iced matcha at home with just a jar, ice and matcha powder!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 12 tsp matcha powder (see notes)
  • 57 ice cubes
  • 11.5 cups cold water
  • sweetener, if desired (see notes)
  • to make an iced matcha latte: dairy-free milk of choice

Instructions

  1. Add the ice cubes to a sealable jar or container.
  2. Add the matcha powder and top the jar off with cold water.
  3. Shake vigorously until no matcha clumps remain. Enjoy!
  4. 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.

Notes

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.
