Homemade Green Tea Latte

Brrr.  Is it cold at your house too?  Since trips to the corner coffee shop are rarely in the budget, we did a little investigating to see if we could make an affordable Green Tea Latte at home.  Your tummy might like the results, ours did!

Green tea is so good for us.  This might just become a regular treat at our house.  No espresso machine needed! Here is how we made it:

Homemade Green Tea Latte
 
Ingredients
  • 1 green tea bag or 1 scoop of green tea matcha powder
  • ½ cup boiling water
  • 1 cup milk (we used coconut milk to make it dairy free. Yum!)
  • honey to taste (we used a generous tablespoon)
  • ½ tsp vanilla
Instructions
  1. Make the green tea. Let it steep for several minutes.
  2. While it is steeping, heat milk in a saucepan until hot but not boiling.
  3. Place green tea, hot milk, honey and vanilla into blender and blend on high for 1 minute to make it foamy and frothy.
  4. Enjoy!
Notes
Warning: You may have to share! The kids LOVED this too. We made a triple batch and it worked great!

A rainy day, a good book, and warm, sweet, frothy milk.  What’s not to love?

Enjoy!

I recently discovered another easy way to make hot, foamy milk. I just put a cup or so in a plastic container with a lid and shake it hard for about 20 seconds. Transfer it to a glass container and microwave for about 45 seconds. Done! (I use the plastic container first because it doesn’t seem to foam up when I shake it in a glass container.)

It’s become part of my morning routine to get the milk ready while the coffee is brewing and start my day off with a homemade latte! I’ll definitely have to try your recipe as well. Thanks for sharing!

Well that’s easy! Thanks for the tip.
