Dunkin’ Iced Matcha Latte

An iced matcha latte is a creamy cold drink that’s typically made with matcha powder, a sweetener, milk, and ice.

Matcha is green tea leaves that have been finely ground into a powder. Matcha is mixed with water or milk to create a drink.

At Dunkin’, the drink has 4 ingredients, including a sweetened matcha blend, hot water, milk, and ice.

The pre-sweetened matcha blend is made of just sugar and matcha.

The same sweetened matcha is used to make the hot Matcha Latte at Dunkin’.

Make it dairy-free.

To make this a dairy-free drink, you can swap the whole milk for plant-based options such as oat milk.

Iced matcha latte is a caffeinated drink.

Since matcha powder is made from green tea leaves, this drink does contain caffeine. Matcha is less caffeinated than coffee, but if you’re sensitive to it, you may want to consider a caffeine-free drink.
