Blender Oat Milk Matcha Latte

I fell in love with oat milk matcha lattes while in Europe over the past 3 months. I mean, I love my coconut blender matcha and I’ve been making it for a year now, but I now have another favorite matcha in my rotation.

As much as I love matcha lattes, they can be insanely expensive at restaurants or coffee shops. This is a quick and easy way to make an oat milk matcha latte at home, for a fraction of the price!

Where to Find Oat Milk

Oat milk can be found at most grocery stores nowadays. Several large plant-based beverage brands carry a kind of oat milk. If you can’t find it at your regular grocery store, check health food stores in your region and you should find it.

Oat milk just doesn’t seem to be as readily available in Canada as opposed to the US or Europe (yet). Or at least not where I live. We don’t have oat milk at Starbucks and sadly we don’t have the amazing Oatly that could be found all over Europe. However, a few brands do carry oat milk over here. I personally found one by Earth’s Own at my local store.

Even better if you can find a barista blend! It froths better.

What is the Best Matcha?

The best matcha for making lattes is a ceremonial matcha. It’s better quality than culinary grade matcha and will result in a better latte. However, ceremonial matcha can be significantly more expensive than culinary matcha. I’ve bought different brands over the years and I can’t say I have a favorite yet, but I do have trouble paying more for the ceremonial matcha. It may be an unpopular opinion from a food blogger, but choose a matcha that fits your budget (make sure it’s 100% matcha and not a latte blend). I haven’t come across a matcha that I don’t enjoy so far.

That being said, I’ve heard great things from DoMatcha and Encha matcha.

How to Prepare a Matcha Latte

Matcha lattes are typically made using a matcha whisk and frothed milk. You add a small amount of water to your matcha and form a paste using your matcha whick before adding in your frothed warm milk.

For those that don’t own a matcha whisk or even a frother, there’s another way! I personally love to use my blender to make my matcha lattes. It’s simple and saves me from buying extra kitchen equipment.

How to Make a Blender Oat Milk Matcha Latte

All you need to do is warm your oat milk, either by using a microwave or a saucepan. You then add the warm milk with the matcha and sweetener (optional) to a blender and blend until frothy. That’s it!

I hope you’ll love this matcha latte as much as I do.

Prep Time 5 minutes
Total Time 5 minutes
Servings 1

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 teaspoon matcha green tea powder
  • 1 1/4 cup unsweetened oat milk
  • Sweetener of choice, see notes

Instructions

  • Heat your milk using a microwave or small saucepan. The milk should be warm, but not boiling hot. (see notes).
  • Add the matcha and sweetener (if using) to a blender. Add the warm milk and blend until frothy, about 10 seconds. Taste and adjust sweetness as needed. Serve warm.

Notes

I tried this recipe without a sweetener and I personally loved it. Oat milk is naturally a little sweet and compliments the matcha very well. However, this latte is also delicious with added sweetness, especially if you’re new to matcha or not a fan of a stronger matcha flavor. I tried blending in 1 Medjool date, which was delicious and sweet (1/2 a date would be best for a light sweetness). You could also use maple syrup, honey or granulated sugar to taste if desired.
To keep is simple, I like to heat the oat milk in the microwave with the cup I’m using to drink my matcha or a glass measuring cup (it saves on dishes). With my microwave, I find that 2 minutes is all I need to get warm oat milk. The time may differ with your microwave. 
Another option is to heat the milk using a small saucepan. If doing this, slowly heat the milk over medium-high heat. Don’t bring it to a boil (matcha is best with warm, not hot milk), but instead, let it heat until warmed to your liking.
