Iced Rose Water Matcha Latte

It is honestly incredible to wake up in the morning with a rejuvenating, nutritious matcha latte. This time, since I had left over Rose Water from a previous recipe, I decided to combine the two.

This recipe is fast and easy. It also compliments and offsets the fragrant, leafy taste of matcha green tea powder with milk, rose water and a little sugar for a flavor balance that will leave you feeling ready and raring to go.⁣

Best part, you can enjoy this Rose Water Matcha Latte hot or cold.

What is Rose Water?

Rose water is created by distilling rose petals with steam. Rose water is fragrant, and it’s sometimes used as a mild natural fragrance, used in desserts, drinks and more.

Benefits of Rose Water:

  • Soothes skin irritation.
  • Soothes sore throats.
  • Reduces skin redness.
  • Helps prevent and treats infections.
  • Contains antioxidants.
  • Heals cuts, scars, and burns.
  • Enhances mood.
  • Relieves headaches.

With this recipe, there are multiple ways to make it. I have two easy ways to create it below.

Don’t worry if you don’t have the traditional Matcha whisk because you can use a normal whisk you may already have at home.

Ingredients:

• 1/ 2 cup milk**

• 1/ 2 cup cold water

• 1 tablespoon rose water

• 1 teaspoon matcha

• 1 teaspoon edible dried rose petals

• Ice

**Note: You can use any type of milk you desire. I like to use Unsweetened Almond Milk.

Directions:

First Way:

• In cocktail shaker or bottle, pour in water, rose water and matcha powder and give it 10 shakes.

• Pour matcha mixture into the cup with ice.

• Add more ice if needed and top drink with edible dried rose petals.**

Second Way:

• In a small bowl, add hot water, rose water, matcha powder and whisk vigorously until matcha powder completely dissolved.

• Pour matcha mixture into the cup with ice.

• Add more ice if needed and top drink with edible dried rose petals.**

*Dust the top of the drink with matcha powder before adding the rose pedals if you want to get more fancier.

**Note:

• You can add a sweetener to your drink if your milk you are using is unsweetened. I like using Swerve, Equal or any low carb sweetener. You can also use Vanilla Extract as well as any type of sugar/extract you desire.

• You can add more matcha powder for a darker green color. Also the darker matcha powder are usually premium brands. If your matcha powder already has a mixture of milk and sugar, no need to add more to this recipe.
