Vanilla Bean Matcha Latte: Iced or Hot

My new favorite drink is here! A Vanilla Bean Matcha Latte, made iced for the Spring/Summer or hot for the Fall/Winter! It is flavorful, sweetened just right, refreshing, nutrient dense, and made totally dairy-free!

I am so excited to partner with my friends at Nuts.com to bring you today’s recipe. I love their matcha tea powder. It’s so fresh and vibrant! Today I’m showing you how to make a mean iced matcha latte, a hot matcha latte, AND matcha iced cubes!

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!

Creamy, delicious, and just the right amount of sweet! It makes for a perfect coffee alternative.

The iced variation is made slightly different, by blending the ingredients together! It’s my new obsession. Especially with the matcha iced cubes!
