Matcha is no doubt one of the best beverages available today! It is tasty, sweet, and comforting. And you can enjoy it on a cold winter evening when you feel warm and cozy.
In 2017, the sparkling, dense, light-colored green hue became a massive sensation on all social media networks. It became so popular that the global matcha market alone in that year was worth $2.5 billion, and it is estimated to reach $4 billion by 2024. That is outstanding!
After conquering the web, the matcha entered the local tea shops and secured a place among the infusions enjoyed by most people. It also became a versatile ingredient for kitchen bloggers and has since become the favorite beverage drink for most people.
But what is Matcha Latte?
Matcha is derived from the plant Camellia Sinensis (the same plant Japanese green tea comes from), which comes in powder form. Matcha latte, on the other hand, consists of matcha powder, milk, and water.
If the matcha powder is unsweetened, the beverage is usually sweetened with syrup or honey. The type of milk used varies according to your preference and also the amount of milk used.
Before we show you how to make matcha latte with marshmallows, let's go through practical ways to make matcha latte and marshmallows. That way, you can know how to prepare your delicious matcha latte with marshmallows adequately.
As said earlier, all matcha latte is composed of matcha, milk, and usually your preferred sweetener. But after numerous preparations, we found that the best formula, to begin with, is:
Keep in mind that it is a basic formula you should use as a beginner. You can tweak the amounts and type of milk, sweetener, and matha after numerous preparations to create a matcha drink you can enjoy.
Most people overlook this crucial step when making numerous matcha latte with marshmallows recipes. The best and preferable way is to create a thick matcha shot. You can do this by mixing the matcha and water in the cup you will use for the latte. Another way is to mix them individually and add them later.
If you want to form a layered impression in your matcha latte, add your preferred sweetener to the bottom layer (most often, it is the milk layer). The milk will become heavier due to the sweetener and maintain its separation from the matcha layer when you pour it in.
What you need to focus on is breaking up the matcha clumps. Most people advise that you sift the matcha first. That can work, but you can also use a different bamboo whisk for whipping the matcha. If you do not have a bamboo whisk, you can use a battery-operated milk frother to beat the match and water to get an even mixture.
It is advisable to use a bamboo whisk with a more extended handle if you want to make the matcha latte in a taller glass.
You Can Use Any Milk, But Milk Like Oats And Rice Milk Are Naturally Sweet. Reduce The Amount Of Sweetener To Your Preference.
There are numerous types of milk, ranging from regular cow's milk, almond milk, oat milk to soy, rice, and coconut milk.
You can use any of them but keep in mind that some of these milk, such as oat milk and rice milk, are naturally sweet. If the milk already contains natural sugars or has been sweetened, decrease the amount of sweetener.
Honey And Maple Syrup Are The Most Popular Sweetener Used. But You Can Use Powdered Brown Sugar, Stevia, Or Moonfruit.
Many people tend to use honey and maple syrup which adds mouth-watering flavors to the matcha latte. We also recommend simple syrup or powdered brown sugar, which comes from the same sugar.
The simple syrup has delicate caramel notes and does not have the artificial sweet taste that is sometimes available in sugar replacements. Below are some sweeteners you can use and some things you need to keep in mind:
Can you prepare a matcha latte with marshmallow without a sweetener? Yes. When you steam the milk, it gently sweeteners the matcha. So you need less or no sweetener at all.
Matcha latte has numerous health benefits, but you have to be conscious of the sweeteners and type of milk you use. Certain sweeteners and types of milk have high fat or calories. That can make your matcha latte with marshmallow more of an indulgence instead of a healthy alternative to your regular coffee-based beverages.
We recommend that you use higher quality matcha that is less bitter. A drink with a cup of milk and more than two tablespoons of sugar can add to your recommended daily intake.

Tapioca drinks have swept a vast number of countries with their steady hold on teenagers and young adults, and Japan is not an exception to this. With the sheer amount of tapioca (or boba in some places) joints that have been popping up across Japan, it’s not an understatement that this drink is the trendy choice to sip on as you walk through Shibuya, Harajuku, or even Dotonbori. But just like waves, trends come and go, and it begs for the question: what’s the next thing that’ll make waves in Japan?
