MATCHA SOY LATTE
• 1 teaspoon matcha
• 1 cup soy milk
• Honey to taste
1. Measure out the matcha into a cup. The recommended way to drink it is with a larger cup as small cups can make a mess.
2. Put in the soy milk and honey and whisk till the milk is boiling.
3. When the liquid is hot (just about to boil), pour about a 1/2 cup into a small cup and let it cool for 1 minute. Try to get the liquid and not any of the foam that might have formed. Continue heating the rest of the liquid on low heat.
4. Pour the slightly cooled milk into the matcha and stir so that there are no lumps and add sugar if you need to.
5. Return to the saucepan and turn the heat up to medium and whisk. Once the milk looks like it is about to boil, remove it from the heat.
6. Take an electric milk frother and turn it on, making sure that the tip of the frother is not completely submerged but just at the surface. Froth for 30 seconds to a minute. Be careful though. Very hot milk can splatter a little if you don’t get it submerged enough.
7. Slowly pour the steamed soy milk into the matcha mixture, making sure that the liquid pours out first and that the foam settles on top of the drink in a thick blanket. Drizzle with more honey if desired and a sprinkling of matcha powder.
