Matcha White Hot Chocolate

Hot chocolate always has to come with warm fuzzy memories, doesn’t it? I vividly remember being about 9 – otherwise known as the age when snow was fun. My sister and I would spend hours and hours building forts and making snow angels. We’d come in the house with red noses and leave our snowpants in a puddle at the door (you know, for mom to clean up). We’d sit down to mugs of Swiss Miss hot chocolate, no marshmallows for me.

I might not have wintery white Christmases anymore, but here’s my fancy adult white hot chocolate that’s made oh so much more delicious by adding one of my favorite ingredients – matcha.

    Aiya is too expensive for me would it work with other brands? My hubby bought a brand called enzo from amazon last week and I’ve tried it with this recipe, it was great but I still want to check.

    This looks delicious! Do you think the Matcha hot chocolate would work with dark chocolate instead of white?

  5. wow! I have been on a tea kick since the new year and now I must get to the store for matcha to make this! thank you for sharing!!

    I tried your Matcha Coconut Latte and didn’t really like it. But I decided I might as well make this as I happened to have everything. It’s good! Thanks for the recipe!

  7. What a beautiful picture of a curious and utterly tempting recipe x

  8. It’s official: matcha is the new kale. A matcha beverage shop just opened in Brooklyn, Bon Appetit featured matcha cookies in their Christmas cookie lineup, and now this thing of beauty. I think I’m gonna like this trend!

  9. You have the best matcha recipes – a girl after my own heart. I just want to come to your house for a day of matcha recipe tasting. Starting with this matcha hot chocolate.

    Thank you for sharing this recipe! I came across this on Pinterest and absolutely had to run downstairs to make it. Delicious! I like sweeter drinks, so I might use a little less matcha and sweeten it the next go ’round. Thanks 🙂

      So glad you liked it! Let me know your ratio w/ more sweetener (I’m a little matcha crazy and I prefer less-sweet things but I’d love to put your perfect proportion in the notes!)
