Matcha Soy Latte

I love everything with matcha or green tea taste. I used to think that taking the green tea option was a healthier choice over chocolate flavors. Which in the end is not quite true as both has sugars, when store-bought, in cookies or lattes.

But when making it yourself it changes everything. You can control the (natural!) sugar amount, make it dairy or dairy-free, the amount of green tea powder or matcha. In this recipe use soy milk as my creamer of choice, especially since I’m a proud owner of the Hurom slow juicer, I love to juice beans and all sorts of nuts like almond and cashews. So it was a no brainer to make this healthy comforting Matcha Soy Latte using my own soy milk. Feel free to use any milk of choice.
