Yes, it's the middle of the summer and here I am thinking of hot drinks! LOL oh me. I whipped this up to use up some soymilk I had-- feel free to use storebought vanilla or chocolate vegan milk, such as rice milk would be perfect considering the drink's contents. I sweetened mine with a little Sun Crystals and flavored with 1/2 tsp vanilla extract; but posted vanilla soymilk on here just to simplify things. I love the ease and versatility of matcha powder. Feel free to up it to 2 packets of matcha if you have strong tastebuds like mine!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 cup vanilla soymilk (or plain with 1/2 tsp vanilla & sweetened to your liking)
  • 5 g matcha green tea powder (1 packet)
  • 1 teaspoon cocoa powder
  • 14 teaspoon ground ginger


  1. Whisk the ingredients together and heat gently on the stovetop. Because of matcha's splattery properties, I would not recommend making this in a microwave. Garnish with whipped cream and a little shortbread or biscuit!
