You’ve probably noticed my obsession with matcha. It’s a powerful ingredient with many health benefits and I just love it. Lately, my favorite breakfast is Matcha Pancakes paired with wonderful Matcha Latte.

But as the days get warmer, iced drinks are much more suitable so I made this Iced Coconut Matcha Latte just a day ago, and I loved it from the first sip. Actually, I had some unused coconut cream in the fridge and decided to mix it up in my usual matcha latte recipe.

It came out perfect! Coconut flavored and cooling, so creamy and sweet-tasting, boosted with superfood matcha powder. Coconut cream as a base gave such a nice summery touch. It’s really hard to stop sipping on this deliciousness once you start. Give it a try… you’ll see!

Iced matcha with coconut milk benefits

  • It’s a cooling, refreshing antioxidant-rich drink perfect for Summer!
  • It’s creamy, smooth, and packed with lovely coconut flavor.
  • It’s a great brain-boosting, energy-boosting drink, perfect for mornings.
  • It’s packed with a compound called L-theanine, which helps with relaxation and decreases stress levels. (Source)
  • It’s made with coconut milk which is a good source of healthy fats called medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) that promote weight loss by decreasing appetite and increasing energy. (Source)
  • It’s vegan, easy to make, and totally delicious!

Ingredients used

To make this Iced Coconut Matcha Latte at home, you will need only 4 simple ingredients:

Iced Coconut Matcha Latte ingredients
  • Matcha powder. It’s such a powerful ingredient. Matcha boosts memory and concentration (source), helps keep you calm, reduces stress levels (source), but also boosts your energy level. That’s why matcha is a great morning drink. Just make sure you use ceremonial grade matcha powder.
  • Full-fat coconut milk. Use coconut milk from the can, not the box. It has to be super creamy and dense. It will give incredible coconutty flavor and make iced matcha so creamy and tasty.
  • Almond milk. I used unsweetened almond milk. It tastes amazing paired with other ingredients.
  • Sweetener. I like to use Maple syrup. See “Recipe tips” for more suggestions.

How to make Iced Coconut Macha Latte

Making this iced matcha is super easy, but you will need some equipment. I recommend investing in a bamboo whisk. It’s needed to completely dissolve matcha powder. But there are ways to make it using a shaker or handheld frother. See “Recipe tips” for suggestions.

Step by step instructions

  • Step 1: Prepare the ingredients.
    • Start with preparing all the ingredients.
    • Put the kettle on for hot water (you need it to make matcha).
  • Step 2: Mix the matcha.
    • Take a small bowl. Add a teaspoon of matcha powder.
    • Add in a small amount of hot (not boiling) water, about 2 – 3 tablespoons.
    • Take the bamboo whisk and whisk until matcha is completely dissolved. Whisking in an “m” motion can help achieve a nice foam texture.
  • Step 3: Assemble the drink.
    • Take a tall glass and fill it with ice cubes.
    • Add in full-fat coconut milk and almond milk.
    • Pour in the matcha mixture.
    • Add more almond milk or water, if desired.
    • Add in sweetener, if using.

Substitutions

  • You can substitute the almond milk with oat milk (barista style is the best), organic soy milk, or cashew milk.
  • You can substitute maple syrup and use honey. Make sure honey is in liquid form. See “Sweetener recommendation” for more options.
  • Alternatively, you can substitute full-fat coconut milk (from the can) with coconut milk from the box. It will not be as creamy and tasty, but it works.

Recipe variations

  • This iced coconut matcha recipe is vegan.
  • Add in some vanilla for more flavor.
  • Make it keto: Add in a teaspoon of MCT oil. Use low-carb/keto sweetener.

Recipe tips

  • If you don’t have a bamboo whisk, you can use a metal whisk, handheld frother, or simple shaker. Bamboo whisks are gentle on the matcha and also help it dissolve more completely.
  • I highly recommend investing in a matcha set!
  • When whisking matcha, make sure there are no lumps.
  • The quality of matcha green tea powder is crucial for the overall taste of this drink, so don’t go cheap when choosing the right matcha powder. I always use the highest ceremonial grade matcha because I love my matcha strong, powerful, and sweet tasting. Not bitter and leafy.
  • Ceremonial matcha tastes best lightly sweetened. So don’t go wild with adding sweeteners.

Sweetener recommendation

I used pure maple syrup in this recipe. Maple syrup is unprocessed sugar, it has a mild sweet taste and fewer sugary calories. You can use other sweeteners.

  • You can use liquid honey.
  • Use liquid stevia or any liquid low-carb sweetener for the keto / low-carb option.
  • Coconut sugar or any other cristal sugar works well too.
