POSSIBLE INGREDIENT SUBSTITUTIONS
This recipe is easily customizable. Here are some ideas:
- You can replace soy milk with any plant-based milk.
- Hibiscus tea can be replaced by strawberry tea, this way you can create matcha with strawberry cold foam just liked from Starbucks.
Let's go to the kitchen and make Starbucks inspired matcha pink drink!
Step 1: For this recipe, you will need 2 large cups to prepare all of these layers separately.
In a large cup combine matcha with plant milk. You can use frother for this part so the matcha is fluffy and foamy. If you don't like sweet matcha, you can whisk the matcha with water.
Step 2: In the next large cup combine milk and hibiscus tea. Stir a few times or until the milk is pink-colored. If you have problems with the milk not turning pink, simply heat it up slowly while stirring. Tea will eventually release its colors into the milk.
When the milk is pink, remove the bags and you can whisk the milk with a frother to make it foamy and delicious.
Step 3: Prepare tall glasses for serving. Add ice cubes into the tall glasses along with matcha, then add a splash of plant milk, and top it with Hibiscus pink milk. Enjoy!
Serve this matcha refresher any time of the day! It is perfect in the morning with your breakfast or in the afternoon. You can enjoy it with your favorite dessert or pastry.
I don't recommend storing this healthy matcha latte. It's best served fresh.
