Hey there coffee/tea/cocoa loving friends! Today is THURSDAY and I'm celebrating 1000+ link-ups in the Spring Coffee Lovers Hop! WOOP WOOP! Nothing says celebrate more to me than a tasty homemade Matcha Latte. I decided to share my process in making one of my most favorite concoctions! I'm also sharing a little doodled Matcha container that you can grab to create your own Matcha card/tag or project. Have you ever seen any Matcha related stamps??? I haven't, so I just HAD to create one for myself.
Here's the process I go through to make the most delish homemade Matcha Latte:
Add three heaping spoons (the little Matcha spoon) of GOOD QUALITY matcha powder to a glass. Warm some almond milk (I use sweetened Silk) and pour a little bit in the cup. Lukewarm is a good temp. Matcha tastes bitter with hot liquid.
Allow the Matcha time to soak up some of the milk by letting it sit a minute. Stir this slurry up to remove any lumps. I do not use a sieve to remove lumps. Pour the remaining almond milk into the cup.
I use a bamboo Matcha whisk or a battery operated whisk to stir the Matcha in the cup. The battery whisk tends to give more foam/creamy foam than the bamboo whisk (and takes less effort).
After the Matcha/almond milk is stirred, taste to determine proper sweetness. If it is not sweet enough, I add one packet of Monkfruit sweetener.
Add some cream and sprinkle a bit of Matcha powder on top. Enjoy!
I created this card (I copy/pasted the matcha container onto a Microsoft Word document and cut it out to create the perfect background.
The final touch was adding a doodled Matcha sentiment onto Kraft cardstock, then stamping the "Sending you" and "Love" sentiments from the Butterfly Kisses stamp set from Joy Clair. They were the perfect parts to create a perfect punny sentiment!
Mighty Tasty 'eh? Hope you enjoyed this post today! Off to hopping you go! LOL.
Thanks for stopping by!
