Matcha Strawberry Latte For Two

Matcha and strawberry together create a lovely combo! Make two cups of matcha strawberry latte--one for you and one for your very special person (or future special person and win them over).


Below are two versions, an easy non-stove one and a slightly harder one. I love both; the main difference is that cooked strawberries make for a sweeter, thicker consistency while uncooked strawberries make the drink taste brighter and more refreshing. Your pick!


Easy Recipe

Makes 2 servings


Ingredients

8 medium strawberries

4 oz (1/4 cup) water 170F

12 oz (1 1/2 cup) milk of choice

4-4.5 tsp sugar or monk fruit sweetener


1. Mash up 5 of the strawberries using a pestle and mortar or food processor to get a strawberry puree. Dice the other 3 strawberries into small enough cubes to be sipped through a large straw.

2. Add 3 tsp sugar to the milk and stir until dissolved and leave aside.

3. Sift and whisk the matcha powder with the water at 170F.

4. Add half of the diced strawberries and 1-1.5 tsp of sugar to the strawberry puree depending on how sweet your strawberries already are. Then, spoon half of that strawberry mixture into each of the 2 cups. Leave the remaining diced strawberries for later.

5. Add ice to each of the cups for an iced version, otherwise skip this step.

6. Pour 6 oz (3/4 cup) of milk into each cup over the ice and strawberry mixture.

7. Slowly pour half of the thin matcha into each cup carefully over the ice as that helps better maintain the layers.

8. Top each cup with half of the remaining diced strawberries.

9. Enjoy!


"Harder" Recipe

Makes 2 servings


Ingredients

8 medium strawberries

4 oz (1/4 cup) water 170F

12 oz (1 1/2 cup) milk of choice

4-4.5 tsp sugar or monk fruit sweetener


1. Dice 3 strawberries into small enough cubes to be sipped through a large straw and leave aside.

2. Slice up the other 5 strawberries. Add 2 tbsp of water (not listed in the ingredients) to the sliced strawberries and put that on the stove. Cook on low to medium heat until strawberries have softened and disintegrated to get your strawberry puree. Use a fork to mash up until you get a jam-like consistency.

3. Add 3 tsp sugar to the milk and stir until dissolved and leave aside.

4. Sift and whisk the matcha powder with the water at 170F.

5. Add half of the diced strawberries and 1-1.5 tsp of sugar to the strawberry puree depending on how sweet your strawberries already are. Then, spoon half of that strawberry mixture into each of the 2 cups. Leave the remaining diced strawberries for later.

6. Add ice to each of the cups for an iced version, otherwise skip this step.

7. Pour 6 oz (3/4 cup) of milk into each cup over the ice and strawberry mixture.

8. Slowly pour half of the thin matcha into each cup carefully over the ice as that helps better maintain the layers.

9. Top each cup with half of the remaining diced strawberries.

10. Enjoy!
