Iced Green Tea Latte

Copycat Starbucks Iced Green Tea Latte

Green tea lattes are my go-to drink to get at Starbucks, I love how they aren’t overly sweet and the flavor is just so awesome! Recently, I finally started making green tea lattes at home after I finally got a package of matcha powder and I have finally perfected the recipe! I think this recipe is as good or even better than Starbucks!

All you need is 2-3 minutes to make the recipe start to finish before you can be sipping an iced matcha latte.  Easy enough, right? The only thing you might not already have sitting around in the kitchen is matcha powder but that is easy (and cheap) to get off of Amazon.  You can use it for everything from iced matcha lattes, warm matcha lattes, green tea frappuccinos, etc or you can even bake with it! The color may vary in shades of green depending on the matcha you get.  Mine was on the browner side than others.

this was amazing! thank you for this!! I have been looking for a good green tea recipe for wayyy to long. although matcha powder is super expensive, this green tea is outstanding. rich green tea flavor, which you wont find using bags, and the perfect texture (although i lightly blended mine). I also used about 1/2 tbsp of brown sugar because it was a little too bitter for my taste. again, thank you!!
