20 Creamy Matcha Latte Recipes for Vegan, Keto, and Paleo Diets
By: Amanda Suazo
Matcha is more than meets the eye: This potent form of green tea is packed with antioxidants, fat-soluble nootropic compounds, and just enough caffeine to keep things interesting. Matcha latte recipes make a delicious way to collect all the benefits of this earthy, emerald-green tea.
With a rich, leafy taste, matcha pairs well with bright flavors that balance its richness, as well as creamy and sweet ingredients that soften its bitter undertones. You’ll find that many matcha recipes include creamy non-dairy milks and natural sweeteners for the perfect blend of flavors.
For an elegant start to your morning, whisk up the perfect matcha with these vegan, keto, and paleo-friendly recipes:
