Matcha Latte

Cuisinart original

Matcha powder can be purchased either sweetened or not. Be sure to look at the ingredient list to see which type you are purchasing. If it is sweetened, you most likely will not want to add the honey.


Makes 1 serving


1½    teaspoons matcha powder, sifted
1       tablespoon water
1      teaspoon honey (optional or
        to taste)
1      cup milk (dairy or nondairy)

1. Put the matcha powder and water in a
glass that’s at least 12 ounces in
capacity. Whisk or stir well with a fork
or small whisk until smooth (if using
honey, stir into the matcha mixture at
this time). Reserve.
2. Put the milk into a heatproof mug. Hold
the mug in one hand and place under
the steam wand so the bottom of the
wand is just below the surface of the
milk at an angle. Select the Steam
function and press the START/STOP
knob to start steaming. While holding
the mug at an angle, allow the steam
to move the milk around.
Once the milk begins to increase in
volume, lift the mug up higher so the
steam wand immerses deeper into the
milk (this will prevent large bubbles
from forming and will make a nice fine
milk foam). When the foam has almost
reached the top of the mug and you
can feel that the milk in the mug is
quite hot, press the START/STOP knob
to stop steaming. Tap the mug a few
times to remove any larger bubbles.
3. Pour the steamed milk into the glass
with the matcha mixture. Serve
