Learn how to make this easy peasy vegan Dalgona Matcha Latte with just a few simple ingredients and less than 15 minutes of your time. It’s fluffy, delicious and a great alternative for coffee in the morning.
- 1/4 cup aquafaba (aka liquid from a can of chickpeas)
- 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar* (see notes)
- 2–3 tablespoons powdered sugar* (see notes)
- 2 teaspoons matcha powder (we use The Reserve)
- Vanilla oat milk, for serving (or plant-based milk of your choice; we prefer a sweetened one for this recipe)
- Place the aquafaba in a large mixing bowl along with the cream of tartar. Whip on high until the aquafaba becomes fluffy and thick, which will take about 5-8 minutes.
- Once thick, sift in 1 tablespoon of powdered sugar and whip it in. Then continue adding the remaining powdered sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, until incorporated. Lastly, sift in the matcha powder and continue to whip until it is mixed through.
- Fill two glasses with ice and your desired amount of oat milk (we recommend at least 1/2 cup per glass) and then top each with 1/2 of the matcha mixture. Note: We used small glasses for the photos strictly for aesthetic purposes but we suggest using tall glasses and filling it up with oat milk/matcha below the rim of the glass to make it easier to mix through. If you use small glasses and fill it to the rim, it will overflow!
- Mix and enjoy!
- We used a hand mixer for this but a standing mixer would work just as well! Keep in mind that you may need to double the recipe if the bowl of your standing mixer is very large.
- You can whisk this by hand but keep in mind that it will take a long time and the results will not be as good as with an electric mixer based on my experience.
- I have tried this recipe without the cream of tartar and it did work but it is recommended as it helps the aquafaba whip up faster and it also helps form better peaks.
- The time it takes to whip the aquafaba will vary depending on how thick it is to begin with.
- Powdered sugar is recommended for this recipe as it is light and does not weigh down the peaks of the aquafaba. You can use granulated sugar as well but it may not be as fluffy.
