Matcha Latte

Who would’ve EVER thought matcha latte can be made at home without an expensive brewing machine? Not me! Not until I discovered a positive correlation between muscle energy vs the beauty of a matcha latte! I really got no Popeye muscles at all but I’m trying to appreciate what my body can do as opposed to what a machine can do. You will very soon experience it for yourself. Takes about 10 minutes of your day using only 3 simple ingredients. And best of all, you can now look forward to your Mondays better than you ever used to!

Directions:

  1. Heat milk in a small pot with lid on under medium-high heat. When it starts steaming and just before it boils, turn off heat.
  2. Add honey in hot milk and let it dissolve. Mix well.
  3. Meanwhile, add matcha into cup and pour 3 tbsp of the hot milk into the cup.
  4. Using a spoon or a hand-chasen, mix the matcha and milk well until a smooth thin paste forms.
  5. Pour the hot milk in a medium-sized jar enclosed with a tight lid (or a insulated thermos – even better). The bigger the jar, the more froth you can make.
  6. Ensure it is tightly sealed. You don’t want liquid to leak out when you shake.
  7. Shake the jar vigorously for 10 seconds. If it gets too hot for your hands, use a damp cloth to wrap it around the jar before shaking.
  8. Open the lid (be careful of the built up pressure!) and pour milk into the prepared cup. Make sure to get all the froth out of the jar!
  9. Serve and enjoy!
