Winter Spiced Matcha Latte

I was restocking my spice cupboard the other day whilst making a matcha latte and had the random idea to add spices to the almond milk while it simmered.

The result was delicious! 

For my matcha lattes, I use Lalani & Co. Matcha Gold and the reason for this is specified in another of my blog posts, which you can read here

This spiced matcha is so comforting and adds a little taste of Autumn/Winter - perfect addition for snuggling up on the sofa with a blanket on a chilly afternoon!



INGREDIENTS 
  • 1/2 tsp Lalani & Co. Matcha Gold 
  • 2 tbsp cold water
  • 1 cup milk of choice (I use unsweetened almond most of the time)
  • 1 star anise
  • 1 cinnamon stick, broken in half


METHOD

1. Place the milk into a pan with the star anise and cinnamon stick and gently start to warm it to a point just before it begins to boil

2. While waiting for the milk to warm, place the matcha powder in a mug or small bowl and add the water

3. If you have a bamboo whisk then ideal but if not just use a mini whisk or fork to create a smooth, creamy matcha paste

4. Take the star anise and cinnamon stick out of the milk and then pour the matcha paste into the pan and stir to combine

5. Using a milk frother, whisk up to create a nice frothy matcha latte

6. Pour into a mug and enjoy!
