How I make Iced Matcha Turmeric Latte at home

Jul 6, 2020Create, Lifestyle

SERVINGS: 1 tall glass
TOTAL TIME: 5 minutes

— Matcha, 1 tsp
— Ground turmeric, ½ tsp
— Oat milk, 1 cup
— Lemon pepper, ¼ tsp
— Ground cinnamon, ¼ tsp
— Ice cubes, 4-5 cubes

— I use a NutriBullet, but you can any blender you have at home.
— You can substitute oat milk with your milk of choice.
— I like my milk a tad sweet. I’d recommend adding 1-2 tsp of honey if using unsweetened almond milk.

Here’s a quick video of how I make my iced matcha turmeric latte at home.

I love it so matcha, I love it a whole latte!

In the morning, most people I know tend to go for a hot cup of coffee. I, on the other hand, can’t drink anything caffeinated too early because it upsets my empty tummy. So I like to hydrate and sip on room temperature water first, and then after my typical morning routine movements, I’ll make my preferred version of caffeine — a delicious iced matcha turmeric latte. I’m also sensitive to caffeine, and coffee makes me jittery which feels so unnatural. Whereas matcha green tea gives me a more smooth and sustained boost of energy.

It’s so easy to make, is high on antioxidants, helps boost your metabolism, and provides fiber and nutrients like chlorophyll, vitamin A, and vitamin C.

If you’re working from home, are quarantined or practicing social distancing, or if you simply want to save money normally spent at cafes, AND you enjoy a good ol’ iced matcha… this one’s for you. It’s almost ridiculous to think I used to spend so much money on buying this at cafes.

How I make it

  1. Pour oat milk into NutriBullet blender cup.
  2. Add matcha powder, ground turmeric, lemon pepper (to activate the turmeric), ground cinnamon, and ice cubes to blender cup.
  3. Close lid and blend for about 10 seconds.
  4. Pour into tall glass, and enjoy through a metal or bamboo straw.
