A delicious, grown-up winter treat, this Matcha White Hot Chocolate is an easy, cozy drink for cold days. 4 ingredients and full of healthy antioxidants!
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.
If you’re new to matcha, check out this matcha coconut latte post where I describe it a little more… or view all of our matcha recipes in our (now working again, sorry for yesterday’s glitch) recipe index.
Matcha White Hot Chocolate
- ¼ cup white chocolate chips
- 2 cups unsweetened almond milk
- 2 teaspoons AIYA cooking grade matcha
- 1 cup hot water
- Melt the white chocolate together with ½ cup of almond milk. Stir until smooth, then add the remaining almond milk. Set aside.
- Sift matcha into 1 cup hot water and whisk until combined and frothy. Stir this into the almond milk/white chocolate mixture and pour into 2 mugs.
So simple and lovely
This would be great to make for special occasions such as st. patricks day! Cant wait to take a sip!!
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?
Ugh, two of my favorite things combined. I need to try this!!
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!
ha, thanks 🙂
What a beautiful picture of a curious and utterly tempting recipe x
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!
Ha – love it! (although I do have a smoothie recipe that uses matcha and kale 🙂 http://www.loveandlemons.com/2014/07/17/matcha-kale-peach-smoothies/
Oh… touche 😉
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!)
