Creamy Pecan Pie Matcha Latte
If you're a matcha lover with a penchant for pecan pie, this delightful Pecan Pie Matcha Latte 🥧 is the perfect concoction for your taste buds. It combines the earthy notes of matcha with the rich, nutty flavor of pecan butter, all in a creamy, plant-based milk base. This recipe is not just a latte - it's a cozy dessert in a cup! Let's dive into making this irresistible treat.
- 1 cup plant milk (cashew or oat work best for this recipe)
- 1 tablespoon pecan butter (we used @georgiagrinders)
- 1 teaspoon maple syrup
- 1 teaspoon brown sugar (or sweeter of choice)
- 1/2 teaspoon matcha powder
- Cinnamon topping (for that extra special touch)
1. Warm Up: Start by gently heating your plant milk in a saucepan over medium heat. Ensure that the milk doesn't come to a boil, but is heated to your preferred sipping temperature. If you have a milk frother that heats, you can just toss all the ingredients in and skip the rest of the steps!
2. Add the Pecan Butter: Once the milk is warm, whisk in the tablespoon of delectable pecan butter. The creamy and nutty essence of pecans will blend harmoniously with the milk.
3. Sweeten the Deal: Stir in the maple syrup and brown sugar. These sweeteners will give your Pecan Pie Matcha Latte that unmistakable pecan pie sweetness. Adjust the amount to your liking – you can always add more for an extra sugary kick!
4. Matcha Magic: Make your matcha shot by combining half a teaspoon Matcha Nude with 2 tbsp water (use an electric or bamboo whisk for best results)
5. Froth and Blend: Pour the pecan milk mixture into a favorite mug. Froth it until it becomes delightfully foamy and top with your matcha shot.
6. Sprinkle: As a finishing touch, sprinkle a pinch of cinnamon on top. This not only adds a dash of warmth and spice but also enhances the pecan pie flavor.
7. Sip and Savor: Find a cozy spot, take a deep breath, and savor the warm, creamy, and nutty goodness of your homemade Pecan Pie Matcha Latte. With the unmistakable flavors of pecan pie and the earthy notes of matcha, this latte is the perfect sweet treat for any time of the day.
