Blender Oat Milk Matcha Latte
A quick and easy oat milk matcha latte that's made in the blender. No matcha whisk or frother required! This matcha latte is made with only 2 ingredients, plus a sweetener of choice.
- 1 1/2 teaspoon matcha green tea powder
- 1 1/4 cup unsweetened oat milk
- Sweetener of choice, see notes
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.
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.
