Iced Almond Matcha Latte

Sipping a cup of steaming hot matcha is usually a warming experience, but shaken with almond milk over ice, like this, it transforms into a refreshing treat on a hot day.

A quick word of advice on the super green tea: Do you know if your matcha is high-quality? Since the drink became popular, many companies have been selling versions that are not nearly as pure as others on the market. But there are a few simple ways to evaluate brands, even if you don’t have deep details.

First, color: the more vibrant, dark green the matcha, the better it likely is. A dull gray-green is not acceptable. Second, taste: it’s a bitter, grassy drink but if the flavor is so bitter it makes you cringe, that’s likely the quality, not your taste buds.


  • 2 teaspoons matcha powder
  • 1/4 cup almost-boiling water
  • 6 ounces unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon


  • Dissolve the matcha powder in the boiling water, whisking out the lumps.
  • Fill a cocktail shaker with ice and pour in the matcha water and almond milk.
  • Shake liberally.
  • Serve over ice.
  • Top with cinnamon.


You’ve likely heard wellness peeps going on and on about matcha, matcha, matcha…and that’s because the powdered green tea is a true superfood. It’s filled with powerful antioxidants and delivers an energy boost that doesn’t result in a subsequent crash, thanks to its caffeine-l-theanine combo.
