There’s something about an iced matcha latte that just says summer to me. It’s light. It’s refreshing. And it’s a fab alternative if you’re looking to switch up your caffeine options for anxiety or hormone reasons. So today I’m sharing my go to iced matcha recipe with a new syrup option. I’m seriously obsessed and I know you will be too!
Now, I like to make my matcha in the blender because it’s less fussy. Pour it all in, blender and then pour it over ice. However, I know that not everyone has a blender or you may want to make this on the go. So I’ve also included the instructions for using a hand frother because it’s the most budget friendly. It’s also great if you prefer your iced matcha hot.
The biggest difference between this recipe and one you might grab from your local coffee shop is the amount of sugar. Most matcha powders are sweetened. And so are the non-dairy milks you’re getting. To lower the sugar and make it a bit more gut friendly, hormone friendly and blood sugar friendly, I’m using my fave vanilla syrup from NuNaturals.
Also, it’s worth noting that not all matcha powder is made the same. Powders that look more brown than green tend to be a lesser quality overall. So just because you’re getting a powder in bulk doesn’t mean you’re getting all those good antioxidant benefits. I recently discovered this matcha powder on amazon thanks to Minimalist Baker’s very thorough review!
I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do! Be sure to tag me on instagram if you make it. My words of affirmation loving heart loves seeing everything you babes are making! Sending you all the love and positive vibes. Xoxo, Savvy
