Dairy Free Matcha Latte Iced or Hot

Confession: I’ve never been a huge matcha person until recently, and I am now fully currently obsessed! I cut out coffee and added matcha into my life and I am loving it. It’s packed with antioxidants, boosts memory, has detoxifying properties, and so much more. Now that it’s warming up here in Boston, the iced matcha latte has been on repeat daily.

Let’s talk… HOT LATTE:

The hot variation is made on the stove top and topped with steamed nut milk. I used cashew milk but any will do! LOOK at that delicious vanilla bean. Another Nuts.com win!

    1. Oh Hannah, don’t feel bad, I haven’t tried it either. I have been having Chai tea in place of coffee, and have been truly enjoying that. I think I will give the matcha latte a try. Regardless of hot or cold weather here in Colorado, I prefer my drinks warm, other than my water.
