1 teaspoon Matcha powder
1/4 cup Water
3/4 cup Unsweetened Almond Milk (or any non-dairy milk of your choice)
1/8 teaspoon Dried Ground Stevia Powder
Makes one serving.
Heat the water up. Make sure the water is under boiling point. Don't use boiling water, the best tea is made with water no more than 180 degrees F.
Take a small bowl and sift your matcha tea powder. Then add 1/4 cup of hot water and use the bamboo chasen to whisk briskly til the tea powder has completely dissolved into the water.
Warm up your milk but don't boil.
I used an electric hand frother to foam up the milk. (This step is optional. I just happen to like the foam on top.)
I used ground up all natural Stevia leaves to sweeten this drink. (Sweeteners are optional.)
Pour the tea into a mug. Add the milk. Sweeten to taste. Stir.
I have found that Almond milk and Soy milk work best in a non-dairy latte if you like your milk to be frothy and creamy.
This recipe makes one 8 oz serving. I doubled the amount when I made it for these photos.
Preparing The Stevia Powder:
Take the dried Stevia leaves and put them into a blender or coffee grinder. Pulse til its pulverized into a powder. Be careful as to how much you use. 1 tablespoon equals 1/2 cup of Sugar. Buying all natural dried leaves is the best way to use Stevia because there are no added preservatives or sugar alcohols added to the powder. It looks different from the preservative filled products you buy at the store because this is all-natural and has not been tampered with to look white like sugar. The photos below show how easy it is to prepare. A little goes a long way.
