  • Prepare Matcha mix: Sift matcha and mix together with sugar in mug, add rest of hot milk and whisk until smooth
  • Put your drink together: Pour chocolate milk into matcha mix, topping with whipping cream or marshmallow and some more matcha powder.

You can add a pinch of salt if you like

*You can use any milk of your choice, also no dairy milk and any sweetener of your choice. For a more intense umami taste, do not add sweetener at all.

**Always adjust the quantity of matcha powder according to your personal preference. 5g of matcha powder will result in a medium/strong umami taste. It's ok to increase or decrease the dose according to your personal preference
