Green Tea Latte Recipe

Your Starbucks Green Tea Latte Is Loaded With Sugar — Here's What to Do About it

A green tea latte sounds like a healthy enough choice from Starbucks, right? Guess again. Just one tall green tea latte (made with two-percent milk) contains 260 calories and 40 grams of sugar — almost twice the daily recommendation outlined by the American Heart Association. If you love the flavor and buzz this matcha-filled beverage offers, there's good news: you don't have to give up your green tea latte for good.

Save a few dollars, almost 100 calories, and 40 grams of sugar from your morning Starbucks run with our five-minute homemade green latte recipe. Once you try this creamy, all-natural version out for yourself at home, the idea of standing in line for a cup of the Starbucks stuff will seem silly.

Sugar-Free Green Tea Latte

If you have a milk frother, feel free to use instead of simply heating the coconut milk over the stove. While a beverage with steamed milk would be closer to the Starbucks original, I found this much quicker recipe just as delicious. Also, be sure to look for matcha powder that is made without sugar.

Green Tea Latte Recipe


  1. 1 cup light coconut milk (I used Native Forest brand)
  2. 1 packet (2 grams) matcha powder (I used Rishi Matcha On-the-Go)
  3. 1/3 cup hot water
  4. 1 to 3 packets stevia
  5. Sprinkle of cinnamon, optional


  1. In a small saucepan, heat up coconut milk until it starts to bubble around the edges.
  2. Combine matcha green tea powder, hot water, heated coconut milk, and stevia in a large glass bowl.
  3. Whisk quickly until the matcha and stevia powders have fully dissolved.
  4. Pour into a teacup, sprinkle with cinnamon, and sip up.
