Iced Matcha Latte
1/4 cup hot (not boiling) water
1/2 teaspoon good quality matcha tea
1 1/2 teaspoons coconut syrup or ice syrup
1/2 cup unsweetened coconut milk beverage or other neutral nondairy milk
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
About 6 ice cubes
Put the hot water in a small bowl. Add the matcha and whisk until smooth. Stir in the coconut syrup or ice syrup until it dissolves. Pour the mixture into a glass. Add the nondairy milk, vanilla extract, and ice cubes. Mix well. Serve chilled.
Note: Both syrups lend a different flavor to the drink, so be sure to mark your preference before you pour it in. Give it a taste and sample as you add it for your own level of sweetness.
