How to make this 5-Minute Iced Green Tea Matcha Latte

- Add in the agave (or raw sugar) and mix.
- Pour the oat milk (or cashew milk) over the mixture.
- Mix together and add in ice.

Tips for making an iced green tea matcha latte:
This matcha powder is perfect for this recipe. Oat milk makes the latte extra creamy, but cashew milk is a wonderful alternative (and a little less creamy). You can also mix them together for a happy medium! Feel free to adjust the level of sweetness to taste.
Add a little bit of vegan vanilla protein powder to take this recipe to the next level! Just be sure to add about 1/4 cup of extra water or milk to compensate for the powder.
