This week Sunday Supper is turning “green” in honour of St. Patrick’s Day. We will be sharing recipes for green foods from beverages all the way to desserts (and everything in between), so make sure to check out all the links at the end of this post!
So, green it is and what’s greener than Matcha?? I know many of you share this little guilty pleasure with me… raise your hand if you don’t like Green Tea Latte?? Every time I go to Starbucks, I order one. Yes, every time! I love everything about it… its taste, obviously, but also its colour: doesn’t it look stunning? I was so happy when I discovered that making your own Green Tea Latte is actually very easy. Not only that, it can save you some money too as it is definitely cheaper than buying it outside. You can make it with or without a frother (if you don’t care about the foamy top) and it is ready in a matter of minutes. Being Italian, I love cappuccino, so I have an electric frother, but I am sharing with you the instructions on how to make this also with a simple manual frother. Just a little note about the name of this recipe. Latte is an Italian term that means “milk” and it is short for “caffe’ e latte” (milk and coffee), so be aware that if you are in Italy and you order a “latte”, you will be served a glass of milk (probably cold). That said, here in Australia (and I am guessing this is the same in North America), a latte is a cappuccino with less foam and a flat white is a cappuccino with almost no froth (which is the Italian equivalent of a “caffe’ e latte”). Just for your info, in case you are ever in Italy and want to have some coffee! 😉
Anyhow, if you like matcha, then you will LOVE this drink! The slight bitterness of matcha and the sweetness added by the sugar, make it a perfectly balanced experience! Enjoy and happy Paddy’s Day!

Green Tea Latte #SundaySupper
The recipe for a delicious Green Tea Latte: you won't believe how it easy it is to make your own!
- 250 ml – 1 cup milk or soy milk etc.
- 1.5 tsp green tea matcha powder
- 1 tsp sugar or to taste
- 1 tbsp warm water optional – to use only if you don’t have an electric frother
If you have an electric frother like me, put all the ingredients in it and use it as if you were making a cappuccino.
If you don’t have an electric frother, you can still make this green tea latte by using a manual frother or without any frother at all. All you need to do is sift the match powder into your glass and dissolve it in the tablespoon of warm water. Heat the milk with the sugar (but don’t let it boil), froth it and add it to the green tea mixture.
When ready, slowly pour it into a glass and top it with the froth.
Sprinkle the top with some green tea powder and serve hot.

Becca from It's Yummi! says
I bought my very first container of matcha yesterday, Mani. I nearly passed out from the sticker shock, but when it can give me great recipes like your latte, I guess the price will be worth it! 🙂
Renee - Kudos Kitchen says
What a great pale green color. It looks and sounds super healthy. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
Cindys Recipes and Writings says
I’ve done the Barista bars and this would be a great addition as an alternative for tea drinkers.
Jennifer @ Peanut Butter and Peppers says
I love green tea lattes from SB! Yours looks way better than SB!!
That is one beautiful drink, Manu! I especially love that extra sprinkling of matcha on top.
This would be the perfect way to start my St. Patrick’s Day! Thanks for the tip on how to make this latte without a frother 🙂
Brianne @ Cupcakes & Kale Chips says
I drink green tea but haven’t tried matcha yet. I’ll have to add this to my shopping list!
Thank you so much for posting this! I love chai lattes and have wanted to try a green tea latte at home. Do you have a favorite matcha powder?
Laura Dembowski says
I never drink tea, but this makes me want to give it a try!
Lea Ann (Cooking On The Ranch) says
I’m not a Starbucks customer and have never had a green tea matcha. That’s going to change very soon. It’s a gorgeous color.
What a perfect drink for St. Patricks Day! I love the addition of healthy matcha powder! 🙂
My favorite drink, thank you for sharing this! I will be making this at home. Great photos!
I’ve always wondered what the green tea latte at Starbucks tasted like, now I think I’ll have to give your homemade one a try!
Betsy @ Desserts Required says
I love how creative this is. Perhaps it sounds easy to you, but I NEVER would have thought to use my frother for anything other than milk! Pinning now!
The Ninja Baker says
Yummmy! Appreciate the warm water tip to create froth but your matcha latte makes me want to buy an electric frother! Thank you for the recipe…and the tips on ordering properly in Italian =)
P.s. Your gorgeous photos are pinned!

Laura Hunter says
When I worked at Starbucks I use to love making myself a green tea latte for my breaks, I don’t think I have had one since I left 6 years ago.
Anne @ Webicurean says
That’s some good looking latte! I need to pick up some matcha so I can try it!
I’m not really a fan of matcha but you can’t deny the color and your photos are gorgeous!
Alice // Hip Foodie Mom says
Now I want an electric frother!! love this!!
Jennifer B. says
Mmmmm green tea! Love the bright color of this drink.
Connie | URBAN BAKES says
I have yet to try matcha. Can you believe it?! I don’t know if it’s the new thing now or if I’ve been living under a rock because I see it everywhere. I have got to get on this bandwagon because your matcha looks like a drink I will really enjoy. Where do you buy yours? Online?
Hi Connie! I found mine at a tea shop here in Sydney (Australia), but you can definitely buy it online too. 🙂
Lora O'Brien says
Hi, just to let you know we recently featured this recipe in our latest Eluxe article.
