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

A granita is an Italian frozen treat that’s basically a poor man’s shaved ice in that it’s coarser and crunchier.

I can chug down an iced matcha latte in less than five seconds but with this granita version, it takes slightly longer….maybe a couple of minutes?

What I Used to Make This Matcha Latte Granita

Green tea latte granita

This recipe is a quick one to figure out — make a matcha latte then freeze it. I sweetened the deal by topping it off with a little bit of condensed milk.

I’m not going to lie, after you freeze the matcha latte, it’s a bit of a workout to scrape the granita. Get ready to roll up your sleeves for this one.

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. Still, it’ll be work.

To freeze the granita quicker and to make the scaping of the granita easier, 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.)

I didn’t add any sweeteners to the matcha latte itself since I was topping it with condensed milk. If you’re not going with the condensed milk, mix in a tablespoon of honey or sugar into the matcha latte before freezing.

Matcha Latte Granita Tips

  • Sift matcha to make the matcha latte smooth and without clumps.
  • If you don’t have a matcha whisk, use a regular whisk or a spoon to stir.
  • The thinner the frozen matcha latte is in the baking dish, the easier it is to break apart the granita.
