Nothing beats sipping a frothy mug of tea on a chilly day. You don’t need barista skills or special equipment to make your own Frothy Matcha Latte. With only five ingredients, whipping up this delectable drink is a cinch! The beverage calls for milk, matcha tea, ginger powder, vanilla extract, and a clean eating sweetener of your choice.
Matcha is made by grinding an entire green tea leaf into powder. Like conventional green tea, it’s full of antioxidants. However, you absorb more nutrients with matcha since you consume the entire leaf. This simple beverage blends wholesome ingredients into frothy, foamy perfection. If you’re looking for a guilt-free, belly-warming treat, look no further than this matcha latte!
