Matcha latte- A drink made in Chelsea

This is the sort of posh drink you would imagine the cast of “Made in Chelsea” sipping for their breakfast, still wrapped in a White Company fluffy toweling robe and all the while discussing the latest antics of so and so on their crystal studded Blackberry…

It is also delicious and healthy and packs a good punch against free radicals so your skin will remain radiant and smooth – and Botox-free!

Ingredients list for two glasses:

  • Matcha latte powder 1 tsp
  • Soya milk 250 ml
  • Agave or brown rice syrup 2 Tbsp

Dissolve the green Matcha tea into a little bit of cold milk, then add the rest of the milk into a pan, add the sweetener and warm this over gentle heat.

Just before boiling point, switch off and beat the liquid with a whisk to make it frothy.

Serve into two tall glasses. It should be very warm but not boiling.

You can add some more frothy milk on top like a cappuccino and decorate with a pinch of Matcha.

This is a particularly warming, lean but nourishing drink. I find it is a wacky alternative to coffee and it gives you the zing you require to go bouncing into the afternoon!

You can customise and add more or less sugar according to your taste and mood.

Tombo in Thurloe place (South Kensington) makes a very sweet and indulgent version – and I find myself regularly coming back for more… They also sell divine Mochi sweets to nibble on with your latte. I could give you the exact address but then I’d have to kill you afterwards…
