Matcha (Green Tea) Latte Granita

Matcha (Green Tea) Latte Granita Recipe

What’s more refreshing than an iced matcha latte on a hot day? Duh, a Matcha Latte Granita!

And because I love miniature-sized desserts, I serve them in these tiny stemless wine glasses.

This recipe was a quick one to figure out — make a matcha latte then freeze it. If you want to sweeten the deal, top it off with a little bit of condensed milk.

A quick tip: Always sift your matcha so you don’t get clumps.

I’m not going to lie, after you freeze the matcha latte, it’s a workout to scrape the granita. It’s a bit easier if you let it sit out for a few minutes before you start scraping away with a fork to break up the icy block.

If you want it to freeze quicker, get a bigger baking dish so the liquid isn’t more than an inch deep. (I used a smaller baking dish since I didn’t have room in my freezer for a bigger one.)

MATCHA (GREEN TEA) LATTE GRANITA

Makes 5 mini servings in 6 oz. glasses or 2 regular servings

INGREDIENTS
1 1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup water
2 teaspoons matcha
Optional: sweetened condensed milk

DIRECTIONS
In a small bowl, sift matcha then add water. Whisk to combine. Pour into a baking dish. Stir in milk.

Freeze matcha latte for at least 4 hours or until completely frozen through. When ready to serve, take out of freezer and let sit for about 5–15 minutes. Using a fork, scrape off the ice to get granular pieces of ice. Scoop granita into glasses and serve immediately. Drizzle with sweetened condensed milk if you want to add a little something sweet.
