Here I am sharing the easiest low-carb green tea latte recipe, made without fancy tools!
All you need to make this healthy green drink are:
First, add the green tea and lukewarm water into a small saucepan. Then, use a small whisk or bamboo whisk to dissolve the Matcha powder into the lukewarm water. This step is crucial to avoid green tea lumps into your keto drink.
Next, whisk in the heavy cream and 1/2 cup of unsweetened almond milk into the saucepan. If you don’t have a milk frother at home, add the entire amount of almond milk!
Bring the saucepan to medium heat and warm for 2-3 minutes until hot and small bubbles start to form on the side of the saucepan.
Remove from heat and serve.
This is optional, but if you have a milk frother at home, froth the remaining 1/4 cup of almond milk and serve on top of the drink. Another option is to serve your latte with a dollop of unsweetened whipped cream!
Decorate the drink with a sprinkle of extra Matcha powder.
Yes, add all the ingredients into a blender and blend at high speed. Serve in a tall glass over ice cubes.
Yes, you can make a bulletproof Matcha latte, aka. Matcha keto latte with MCT oil by adding 1 teaspoon of MCT oil into this recipe. It means you can also use coconut oil if you don’t have MCT oil on hands. Both have very similar properties.
However, remember that you will have to blend your hot drink to pulse the oil into the remaining ingredients. If you don’t use a high-speed blender, the MCT oil will float on top of your keto green tea Matcha latte.
No, a classic Matcha latte from your coffee shop is not keto-friendly as it contains sugar and milk. Milk contains lactose, a milk sugar that can keep you out of ketosis. If you want to enjoy a keto-friendly Matcha latte at your favorite coffee store, order one with no sugar added and request unsweetened almond milk.
Yes, you can use this recipe to make a vegan keto Matcha latte. Swap the heavy cream with one of the below options:
Matcha powder is made from dried green tea leaves. As a result, it has no net carbs. All the carbs in Matcha powder are fibers that are not assimilated carbs. It means that Matcha powder won’t impact your ketosis, and it’s safe to drink it every day as a swap to bulletproof coffee.
Plus, Matcha green tea adds wonderful health benefits to your body, like antioxidants properties.
A keto Matcha latte should be served in the morning as a fat-burning drink to start the day with healthy fat and caffeine.
Green tea contains caffeine, just like coffee. It’s an energizing drink and therefore shouldn’t be consumed at night.
