Vanilla Matcha Chai Latte (Dairy Free)

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by UmmBinat

This is my new love. I tried a matcha latte at Teaopia tea shop and fell in love with the detox & energy of this Japanese tea. I love that the caffeine in matcha releases slowly into the blood not like caffeine in coffee so you don't get jittery unless you drink a ton without eating anything else, then maybe.

I bought some match because that's what everyone is talking about, and this was my first recipe. LOVED IT! I admit to making a few shortcuts because that's what I had -- I used almond milk instead of making with the water and ground almonds. And I actually had to use some dried ginger sprinkles instead of fresh. But no matter, the end result was still fantastic. YUM!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Blend water and almonds until very smooth.
  2. Strain through a fine sieve.
  3. Bring almond milk and spices to a boil.
  4. Boil for 5 minutes with the lid off, then simmer for 10 minutes covered.
  5. Strain into a blender (I use glass). Let the mixture cool down for a few minutes, then add the matcha powder & vanilla and blend. Add raw honey to taste. I probably use more than an 1/8 cup but do it to taste.
  6. Enjoy hot or cold. (I prefer it hot though).
