A quick and easy blender oat milk matcha latte that’s made with only 2 ingredients. No matcha whisk or frother needed! This matcha latte requires only 5 minutes of preparation and is much cheaper than the coffee shop version.
I fell in love with oat milk matcha lattes while traveling in Europe in 2019. While I love the idea of enjoying a fresh cup of coffee in a small French café, I’m one of those people that can’t drink coffee without feeling anxious all day. For this reason, my go-to coffee shop order is a matcha latte.
That being said, as much as I love matcha lattes, they can be extremely expensive at restaurants or coffee shops. Because of this, they are an occasional treat while I travel. On most days, I make myself this quick and easy oat milk matcha latte at home, for a fraction of the price. And the best part? All you need is 5 minutes, a blender and two ingredients (plus optional sweetener).
This recipe was originally published in 2020 and has been a blog favorite ever since. It has now been updated with new photos and extra details to help you make the best matcha latte.
Oat Milk Matcha Latte FAQ:
Oat milk can be found at most grocery stores nowadays. Several large plant-based beverage brands carry a kind of oat milk. If you can’t find it at your regular grocery store, check health food stores in your region and you should find it.
Here in Canada, we don’t have the amazing Oatly (in most stores) that could be found all over Europe. However, a few brands do carry oat milk over here. My personal favorite is the one by Earth’s Own (you can also buy it online). A barista blend is also a great option for an extra frothy latte.
Thankfully, many coffee shops, including Starbucks, now offer an oat milk option as well.
Yes! You can make a matcha latte with your favorite milk. Just make sure to use one that you enjoy in lattes. Of course this recipe is made with oat milk, which is my personal favorite milk for lattes.
The best matcha for making lattes is a ceremonial matcha. It’s a better quality than culinary grade matcha and has a better flavor, plus a beautiful bright green color (you can see the difference in color in the photo above). However, ceremonial matcha can be significantly more expensive than culinary matcha. Choose a matcha that fits into your budget (make sure that it’s 100% matcha and not a latte blend).
That being said, I do love using this DoMatcha ceremonial matcha when I want the beautiful bright green color and better quality. I’ve also heard good things about Encha matcha. Otherwise, I tend to use a more budget-friendly option. If you want to learn more about matcha, I love this guide by Veggiekins.
How to Prepare a Matcha Latte at Home:
Matcha lattes are typically made using a matcha whisk and warm frothed milk. You add a small amount of warm water to your matcha and whisk with a matcha whisk before adding it to your frothed warm milk.
For those that don’t own a matcha whisk or even a frother, there’s another way! I personally love to use my blender to make my matcha lattes. It’s simple and could save you from buying new kitchen tools.
How to an Oat Milk Matcha Latte Using a Blender:
All you need to do is warm your oat milk, either by using a microwave or a saucepan. You then add the warm milk with the matcha and sweetener (optional) to a blender and blend until frothy. That’s it! Just make sure that your milk isn’t boiling. It’s best to use a warm, but not very hot liquid to prepare matcha.
