The perfect afternoon pick me up on a summer day! Good quality matcha is the key to getting the most nutritional benefit out of this drink. It can be a bit pricey but a little goes a long way and making it at home will always be cheaper and far superior in taste than what is likely available at your corner coffeeshop.
In a glass mason jar, add the matcha green tea powder and about a tablespoon of warm water. Whisk to form a paste.
Add almond milk, almond or vanilla extract, sweetener to taste, and about a cup of ice. With a tight fitting lid, shake vigorously to really combine the paste and the milk. The ice will help froth the beverage a bit. Add a straw and enjoy!
