Grab a mason jar and your favorite metal straw, because there's one more recipe you need to add to your aesthetic drink repertoire ASAP. Joining whipped coffee and whipped chocolate drinks, TikTok's newest drink of choice is a whipped matcha latte poured over ice, and the seafoam green is so pretty! So, yes, it's time to go full-on barista in your kitchen. Here's how it's made:
- Bring 1/2 cup water and 1/2 cup sugar to a simmer, then reduce to low heat. Cover the mixture and let it sit for 2-3 minutes.
- Beat together 2 egg whites until thick and frothy using a hand mixer or whisk.
- Slowly pour the water and sugar mixture into the egg whites while hot and whisk them together. Then add 3 tablespoons of matcha powder and combine until fully incorporated.
- In a glass, add ice and your choice of milk before topping with a few spoonfuls of the creamy whipped matcha. Stir with a straw to combine, and enjoy!
If you're looking to make a vegan-friendly version of the drink, many TikTok users have also put their own twist on the whipped matcha latte by omitting the egg whites and creating a thick syrup out of water, sugar, and matcha powder. Keep scrolling to take a look at a few different versions of the Instagram-worthy drink ahead, then take a few minutes to try it for yourself.
