Skip the line at Starbucks and make your own Copycat Starbucks Dairy-Free Iced Matcha Latte at home with just 3 simple ingredients! This recipe uses rice milk to make this iced summer drink dairy-free.
Say goodbye to expensive coffee shop drinks and hello to this easy, homemade dairy-free iced matcha latte recipe! 🙌🏼💚 You only need three ingredients to make this gorgeous green drink: matcha powder, rice milk, and vanilla syrup. Then of course some ice and a little bit of water. Froth the matcha powder with a little bit of warm water and then pour over a glass filled with ice cubes and rice milk.
Then stir and enjoy! Alternatively, you can blend the milk, matcha, and vanilla syrup together in a blender and pour over ice. It works that way too. It’s just kinda neat to watch the matcha swirl into the milk 🤗.
Matcha has really become super popular over the last ten or so years, at least here in the United States. You can now order a matcha latte at most coffee shops. Matcha green tea is made from ground up green tea leaves and is a great alternative to coffee. Matcha is loaded with antioxidants and vitamins, including vitamin C and B to help boost glowing skin.
Although matcha still contains caffeine, it is slightly less than a cup of coffee, and you won’t get that ‘caffeine crash’ later on. The non-jittery energy boost you get from matcha is from the amino acid L-theanine. Studies show that L-theanine can be effective in reducing stress and increasing the GABA neurotransmitter in the brain.
If you love the taste of matcha but can’t tolerate dairy, this copycat Starbucks recipe for a dairy-free iced matcha latte is the perfect way to enjoy your favorite drink without the discomfort! 😋🍵 I used rice milk to keep it dairy and gluten-free while also offering a bit of sweetness without adding a ton of sugar.
The vanilla syrup adds that vanilla sweet flavor to this matcha matte. I used Singing Dog Organic Vanilla Syrup, but you can use any vanilla syrup of choice, as long as it’s gluten-free. 😉
How much ice you add is up to you. This recipe will make 1 small iced matcha latte, but feel free to double the recipe.
Whether you’re lactose intolerant, vegan, or just looking for a healthier alternative to traditional lattes, this dairy-free iced matcha latte recipe is a must-try! 🌱🥛
