This vanilla matcha latte is made with healthy, gut supportive ingredients and takes just over 5 minutes to create. Thick, creamy and frothy, it is the perfect cosy latte to start the day, with less caffeine than coffee.


  • 200 ml (or a small mug’s worth) water or milk of choice
  • 2 tsp grass fed gelatin powder
  • 6 cacao butter buttons / 1 small chunk of cacao butter
  • 1 heaped tsp ceremonial grade matcha powder
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • whipped cream, to serve


  1. Add cold water, gelatin and cacao button to a small saucepan. Allow to stand for 3-4 minutes, so the gelatine can bloom and thicken.
  2. Heat over a medium flame to 70c. If you don’t have a thermometer simply make it hot but not boiling. Matcha is best made below 77 C, so if you do bring it to the boil add a good splash of cold milk to bring down the temperature.
  3. Add matcha and vanilla. Use a stick bleneder to blend teh vanilla matcha latter. This should take 30 seconds, and will become thick and frothy.
  4. Serve immediately, with optional whipped cream if you’re feeling like a fancy topping.

Thermomix method

  1. Add all ingredients to your thermomix, and stand for 2 minutes. Heat to 70 C for 3 minutes, then blend for 30 seconds on 70C, speed 9.
  2. Serve immediately, with optional whipped cream if you’re feeling like a fancy topping.



Vanilla matcha latte additions

  • If you like a sweeter drink, 1/2-1 tsp pure maple syrup is recommended.
  • You can add 1/2-1 tsp powdered herbs to this drink- I ave used moringa, mesquite, lucuma, lions mane and tremella in the past and they all work great.
