Matcha Green Tea Almond Latte

I love Matcha green tea. I have tried smoothies and lattes. I decided to buy the powder and make some homemade latte and may be experience with baking. 
  • You will need:

  • 1 tsp matcha green tea powder
  • 2 Tbs Boiled water
  • 2 cup Almond Milk
  • splash of vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp honey to taste
  • Pinch cinnamon

In a cup, add the cinnamon, matcha green tea to the boiled water and then add the splash of vanilla. In the mean time heat the 2 cups of the almond milk in a sauce pan. Add the honey to the sauce pan. After the milk is hot add the matcha mixture and whisk it till it becomes foamy.

Its so easy and tastes amazing.
