Matcha green tea

I've heard of this stuff for what feels like forever but hadn't had a chance to try it! It was always either too expensive, or I had no idea what to do with it (honestly, that latter one is more true than the former).

So on a whim, I decided I HAD to try this stuff. I purchased Kiss Me Organic's from Amazon a few weeks ago. I love matcha green tea latte's from a local coffee shop so that was the first thing I made!

I like almond milk more than dairy milk, mostly because my boyfriend is lactose intolerant and my son finishes the dairy milk before anyone else can touch it, so I made it with that. There were quite a few recipes for this, but I kind of just combined them to make my own.

Matcha Green Tea Latte with Almond milk
1-2 teaspoons of matcha green tea powder *if you LOVE green tea, add more. If you aren't sure, add less.
2 ounces of hot water
6 ounces of heated almond milk
Preferred flavoring: 1/2 to 1 tsp Almond extract or vanilla, or both!
Optional: Agave, honey, or raw cane sugar for sweetness

Sift the matcha green tea powder and then pour in the hot water to dissolve.

Add the almond milk, and whatever flavorings you want and shake.
Pour over ice if you want it cold (my preference).
