Matcha Milk

Matcha milk is basically matcha with milk. That’s it.

I’ve made mine completely delicious by adding vanilla extract, maple syrup, and a pinch of salt.

  • Takes literally 20 seconds to make!
  • My trick to making cold matcha is to shake it like crazy in an airtight container.
  • You don’t need any fancy matcha tools to make this.
  • It’s vegan — everything from the matcha to the oat milk to the maple syrup are all plant based.

Questions You May Have

Is there caffeine in this drink?
Yes, there’s caffeine in matcha so there’s caffeine in this drink.

How can I tell if I’m using good quality matcha?
The better the quality of matcha, the brighter the green it will be. More expensive matcha is practically neon green, and cheaper matcha is a dull, brownish green.

Can I add ice to this?
The drink can be served with or without ice.

How long can I keep this in the refrigerator?
I like to drink it within 4 days.

Matcha Milk Recipe Tips

  • A wide-mouth bottle will make it easier to put the ingredients into the container. You don’t want to make a mess trying to get the expensive matcha powder into a tiny opening.
  • Matcha is meant to be had with something sweet, so adding a sweetener into the drink makes it taste so much better.
  • I used maple syrup but you can use honey or simple syrup. Regular sugar won’t dissolve and it will sink to the bottom.

How to Make Matcha Milk Tea

STEP 1: Pour water into an airtight container.

I’m using a small water bottle with a wide opening. If you have a cocktail shaker, you can use that too.

Water goes in first to make sure the matcha doesn’t clump up in the bottle.

STEP 2: Add matcha.

STEP 5: Pour milk into a bottle.

I’m using these completely adorable milk bottles that have leakproof silicone lids to store my matcha milk. You can also drink it straight from the bottle.

STEP 6: Pour sweetened matcha from the water bottle into the milk bottle.

Because I’m using a good quality matcha the drink is a nice bright green.

The lower the price of your matcha, the lower the quality and your matcha milk may be more brown than bright green.
