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 extremely 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!

Oat Milk Matcha Latte FAQ:

Where Can I 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.

Here in Canada, we don’t have the amazing Oatly (in most stores) that could be found all over Europe. However, a few brands do carry oat milk over here. My personal favorite is the one by Earth’s Own (you can also buy it online). A barista blend is also a great option for an extra frothy latte.

Thankfully, many coffee shops, including Starbucks, now offer an oat milk option as well.

Can I Use a Different Milk?

Yes! You can make a matcha latte with your favorite milk. Just make sure to use one that you enjoy in lattes. Of course this recipe is made with oat milk, which is my personal favorite milk for lattes.

What is the Best Matcha to Make a Latte?

The best matcha for making lattes is a ceremonial matcha. It’s a better quality than culinary grade matcha and has a better flavor, plus a beautiful bright green color. However, ceremonial matcha can be significantly more expensive than culinary matcha. Choose a matcha that fits into your budget (make sure that it’s 100% matcha and not a latte blend).

That being said, I do love using this DoMatcha ceremonial matcha when I want the beautiful bright green color and better quality. I’ve also heard good things about Encha matcha. Otherwise, I tend to use a more budget-friendly option. If you want to learn more about matcha, I love this guide by Veggiekins.

How to Prepare a Matcha Latte:

Matcha lattes are typically made using a matcha whisk and warm frothed milk. You add a small amount of warm water to your matcha and whisk with a matcha whisk before adding it to 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 could save you from buying new 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.

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). I don’t recommend using dates if you don’t have a strong blender. 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.

    I’m yet to try it and I have a question.. what if I heated the milk after blending? I’m asking this because I know that a lot of times when I blend curry paste after little cooking I have to ensure it cools down a bit before putting it in the blending (recommended by the chefs I follow for a particular curry recipe).
    Thank you!

      Hi! Good question. Matcha is best when made with warm, not boiling liquids or the taste will be affected. For this reason, I wouldn’t recommend heating the matcha after blending as it will affect the taste. I would recommend heating your milk until warm, but not boiling. I’ve never had an issue adding hot liquids in a blender and blenders are often used for blending hot soups, so this is similar. Just be careful when you remove the lid. That being said, I do have an iced blender matcha if you prefer not to risk adding hot liquids to your blender. I hope this helps!

    In order to release L-theanine you must use hot water with the matcha powder first. IMO I would suggest the old fashioned way, you are losing the health benefits (L-theanine release and mindfulness while whisking).

      You can certainly use other methods to prepare matcha. This recipe doesn’t use a traditional method and is made for those who are looking for a whisk-free option. I understand that it’s not for everyone and you’re free to use it for inspiration or not. 🙂

    Yum!! That was so easy–I was going to try to make a matcha latte with the special whisk, but this version is delicious

      Hi Chrissy, I hope you’ll like it better with honey! We all have different preferences in terms of sweetness for lattes, so you can of course adjust it to your taste. Different oat milks might also have different levels of sweetness. Granulated sugar could also work. 🙂
