WHITE CHOCOLATE MATCHA LATTE
I'm not fond of coffee houses because I'm a picky eater. I do a better job on my own. So here's my version of a matcha latte which I used to love ordering at coffee houses but now make myself. I like using cashew milk because its very creamy and low in calories. The calories depend on what milk and sweetener you use. This just happens to be a good way to have a fancy drink without the heavy calories you find at most coffeehouses. Considering most fancy coffee drinks are over 250 calories, the 105 in this drink is pretty good.
1 tsp Matcha powder
1/4 cup water
1 cup unsweetened non-dairy Milk
2 tablespoons of Vegan White Chocolate Chips
1/4 tsp Peppermint Extract
1/4 tsp Vanilla Extract
1 small candy cane
sweetener of your choice - I used Stevia
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.
Warm up your milk but don't boil. Add the white chocolate chips and stir until its all melted. I then used an electric hand frother to foam up the milk.
Take a small bowl and sift your matcha. Then add 1/4 cup of hot water and use the whisk briskly til the powder has completely dissolved.
Pour the tea into a mug. Add the vanilla and peppermint extract. Add the milk. Sweeten to taste. Stir.
I used Liquid Stevia so there are no additional calories.
Hang a candy cane on to the cup's rim.
This recipe makes one serving.
There are only 105 calories in this drink. Add 15 calories if you eat the candy cane.
