A simple oat nog matcha latte made with 3 ingredients. This vegan “eggnog” matcha latte is the perfect festive holiday drink.

If you’re looking for a new way to enjoy matcha during the holidays, you need to try an eggnog matcha latte. This festive cozy drink is creamy, sweet and lightly spiced thanks to the vegan eggnog. This recipe is also extremely versatile. You can adjust the sweetness, plant-based milks and matcha amount to your liking. I hope that this recipe gives you some guidance on preparing the best matcha eggnog latte at home.

Oat Nog Matcha Latte Ingredients:

  • Vegan “eggnog”: I love Earth’s Own Oat Nog or Silk’s Festive Nog, but use your favorite vegan eggnog. The “eggnog” that you use will change the flavor of the latte. Make sure that you use one that you love.
  • Oat Milk: I recommend combining oat milk and “eggnog” together to reduce the sweetness of the latte. You can easily adjust the ratio to increase or reduce the sweetness to your taste.
  • Matcha: Use a ceremonial matcha green tea powder for the best results. This will give you a bright green latte with a lovely matcha flavor. Culinary grade matcha powder also works, but you will get a dull green color with a possible “fishy” flavor. I used DoMatcha, but use your favorite.

How to Make a Vegan Eggnog Matcha Latte at Home:

  1. Whisk the Matcha

    Start by heating water in a kettle. It’s best not to use boiling water when preparing matcha. Add the matcha (sifted if possible) to a matcha bowl, along with approximately 1/4 cup of warm water. Whisk the matcha by moving the matcha whisk back and forth, until no clumps remain and the matcha is frothy.

  2. Heat the Milk

    Combine the vegan eggnog and oat milk in your drinking cup. Heat in the microwave until warm to your liking (about 2 minutes for me). Alternatively, you can heat it up in a saucepan. Again, avoid boiling liquids for matcha.

  3. Combine

    Add the whisked matcha to the warm milk. Stir to combine and enjoy.

Oat Nog Matcha Latte FAQ:

Can I Make a Matcha Latte Without a Whisk?

Yes! While it’s not the traditional method to prepare matcha, you can make a frothy matcha latte using a blender. Simply add your ingredients in a blender, blend and you’re done. Just be careful when adding warm ingredients in a blender as there will be steam when you remove the cover. You can check out this recipe for a blender matcha latte.

Can I Use a Different Milk?

You can use any plant-based milk that you enjoy in lattes and that are unflavored. Oat milk works well and it’s the one that I recommend the most for this recipe. I also enjoy soy milk or a combination of soy milk and oat milk in this latte.

Where Can I Find Vegan Eggnog?

Most major grocery stores carry at least one brand of vegan eggnog here in Canada. The ones that I find the most are Earth’s Own, Silk and Califia Farms eggnogs. If your regular grocery store doesn’t carry any, health food stores often do. Brands and availability will depend on where you live.

Should I Add Sugar to my Latte?

The vegan eggnog will add sweetness to this latte, so you likely won’t feel the need to add sugar. You can adjust the ratio of eggnog and oat milk for a sweeter latte. If you love a sweeter latte, feel free to add sugar to your taste.

Notes

Use ceremonial matcha for the best results. If you’re new to matcha, you can start with a smaller amount for a milder flavor.
Use your favorite vegan eggnog. I tried this recipe using Earth’s Own Oat Nog and Silk’s Festive Nog. Both worked well.
For a sweeter latte, use more eggnog. For less sweetness, use more oat milk. I love a 1:1 ratio for a sweeter latte or a 1:2 ratio for less sweetness.
I love to use a combination of vegan eggnog, oat milk and soy milk when I want a bit of protein in my latte. You can play around with the proportions to find the level of sweetness that’s right for you. This is approximately a 1:1:1 ratio for me.
This recipe is incredibly versatile. Adjust it to your liking and have fun with it!
