Scoop 1 TBSP of Nice Matcha into a 12oz cup. Heat 12oz 2% milk by stovetop or in a microwave in a heat-safe mug. Pour a splash of hot milk into the powered matcha and whisk together to make a starter paste to prevent clumping. Use a handheld electric milk frother to in the remaining milk until there is a good amount of froth. Stir the milk into the matcha and top with froth.
Sweet Vegan Matcha Latté Variation: use hemp, cashew, soy or almond milk instead of regular milk. Add 2 tsp of agave nectar to taste.
