Vegan Mint Matcha Latte92A flavor combo that I absolutely adore! Who knew that mint and matcha would work so well together?

After having been inspired by the Moroccan Mint Latte at Urth Caffe to make my Mint Matcha Coconut Cooler recipe, I thought hey, why don’t I just make the latte itself?

Well, I did. And it was awesome.

Vegan Mint Matcha Latte34I used fresh mint leaves from my garden, but you could also use mint tea from the store.  Steep in hot water for about a minute, then strain and set aside. Add the matcha into the mix and whisk vigorously until combined.

Place the almond milk and chopped or coconut sugar into a high speed blender and run until it’s smooth. Transfer that into a small pot and heat over medium until it reaches a slow boil. Combine the mint water with the almond milk mixture and voila, you have an amazing mint matcha latte!

Vegan Mint Matcha Latte57In order to prevent clumping, a matcha whisk* is recommended. *Matcha whisks are periodically available at iHerb. You can use my code VSZ844 for a discount! Or try amazon 🙂

Benefits of Matcha?Mild steady energy, improved skin health, a boosted metabolism, and a whopping 137x the antioxidants of brewed green tea!
