Make It Your Own!
Making matcha at home is really quite simple, thanks to the popularity of the drink and how easy it is to find good quality matcha powder in almost any major supermarket!
But matcha powder really is just green tea, so if that’s all you have at home, it’ll work too! Simply steep your tea beforehand until the brew is strong, and then add from there!
We always recommend using your own choice of milk – whether that’s almond milk, oat, or whole milk. If you don’t have honey for sweetening your matcha, you can try sweetened milk or simply add your favorite sweetener of choice.
Strawberry syrup is easy to find at most major supermarkets. But if you don’t have any on hand, try mashing up some fresh strawberries at the bottom of your serving jar and add a bit of sugar for a subtle sweetness and to further bring out the juices.
A scoop of strawberry jelly or jam will also do the trick, but you’ll want to thoroughly mix it in to avoid jelly clumps.
How To Make
This drink has a few preparation steps but is oh-so-yummy and easy. Plus, there’s no brewing time, which makes it super quick!
Start by adding freeze-dried or fresh strawberry slices to the sides of your serving glass and then fill it with ice.
In a separate glass, froth your creamer of choice until light and fluffy, and then pour it into your serving glass.
Note – You are not steaming your milk, as that will heat the milk up and this is an iced drink.
Add 1-2 Teaspoons of strawberry syrup, drizzling around the sides of your serving glass and over the ice.
Note – If you’re using fresh, crushed strawberries with sugar in place of syrup, you’ll want to do this step before adding ice.
Prepare your matcha in a separate dish, thoroughly mixing to avoid powder clumps. You will only want about 1/4 of a cup of matcha with about a tablespoon of honey mixed into it. Add the matcha and honey mixture to your serving glass, over the milk and ice.
Stir and top with more strawberry syrup if desired. Enjoy!
