Makes 2 lattes

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups almond milk
  • 1 tsp peppermint extract
  • 2-2.5 tsp Aiya Cooking Grade Matcha

Directions:

  1. Heat 2 cups of almond milk over medium-low heat.
  2. Take the almond milk off heat before it boils.
  3. Using a small hand sifter, sift the Matcha over the heated almond milk.
  4. Whisk the 2 tsp Matcha (add a little more for a stronger Matcha flavor) in the almond milk until incorporated.
  5. Add the peppermint extract and your choice of sweetener to the mixture and stir.
  6. Pour into 2 mugs and use an electric hand frother to create foam.
  7. Garnish with 1-2 homemade or store bought marshmallows, and enjoy!
