  • Spoon
  • Small bowl
  • Cup
  • Milk frother (optional)


  • 1 tsp matcha powder
  • 1 cup plant-based milk
  • 1/2 cup water (or sub with more milk)


  • In a relatively small bowl, add 1 tsp of matcha powder.
  • Next, pour in 1 tbsp plant milk/water (the liquid should be around 180 F or 80 C).
  • Whisk until all the lumps are dissolved. You could use a spoon, it's gonna be even easier.
  • Add 1 more tbsp of liquid and mix until combined. Be patient! Repeat the procedure 2 more times.
  • Pour in the matcha into the milk/water (the liquid should be at least warm, afterward you can add ice to cool it).
  • Whisk with a milk frother or a spoon.


  • Make the matcha with only water or only plant-based milk.
  • Add some sweetener to the matcha if you wish: maple syrup, agave syrup, or some coconut sugar. 
  • Top the matcha drink with some whipped cream and/or some cinnamon.
