This new green tea is taking the internet by storm, and I love it! Of course, it’s helpful to have a list of matcha drink recipes to help fuel your inspiration.
Stick with the classics, or try something new. This list has everything from traditional matcha lattes to citrus matcha lemonade.
There’s a green drink for everyone and every occasion!
Matcha is naturally slightly bitter and grassy. The best matcha recipes include a sweetener to balance the flavors.
These 20 matcha drink recipes are sure to hit your sweet tooth!
1. Iced Matcha Latte
No list of matcha drinks is complete without a classic iced latte. Bring the coffee shop right to your kitchen for half the cost.
Whisk matcha powder in hot water to dissolve. While it’s cooling, pour almond milk and simple syrup over ice.
Then, top it with matcha and enjoy! It’s simple, delicious, and healthy.
2. Copycat Starbucks Iced Matcha Latte
Craving your favorite Starbucks matcha latte but want to be healthy and frugal? Do yourself a favor and make them at home!
The secret ingredient to this popular tea is vanilla syrup. Mix frothed matcha, milk of choice, and a tablespoon of vanilla syrup.
I promise you and your wallet will love this copycat latte.
3. Starbucks Matcha Green Tea Frappuccino
Secret menus aside, the matcha frappuccino has always been a favorite of mine. I imagine these drinks are more of a dessert than a beverage.
Unfortunately, this recipe is one of the least healthy on the list.
By using sweetened matcha powder, two syrups, and whole milk you add both calories and flavor.
Alternatives are not recommended for that true Starbucks flavor.
To get that delicious frappuccino consistency, you will add xanthan gum before blending. This thickens the drink keeping it thick and creamy.
4. Strawberry Matcha Latte
One of the best things about matcha is the beautiful emerald color.
Layered with pureed strawberries and milk, this latte is as pretty as it is delicious!
Strawberry puree adds the perfect sweetness to this latte. In your glasses, layer strawberry puree, milk, and finally, matcha to serve.
5. Mango Matcha Green Tea Smoothie
I’ll admit, I’m a sucker for mango smoothies. Blend up a sweet, ripe mango with matcha powder and I’m in heaven.
Mango and matcha are the perfect mask for hidden veggies. Blend broccoli, spinach, matcha, and mango.
The frozen fruits and veggies make this smoothie almost like a healthy milkshake.
Sneak some extra greens to your kids for breakfast while getting yourself ready for the day!
6. Dalgona Matcha Latte
Whipped coffee is a trend I can get behind. And whipped matcha is a trend that will never disappear.
Whip together egg whites and sugar until you have stiff peaks. Then, whisk in matcha powder until fully combined.
Add this fluffy matcha mixture on top of a glass of iced milk.
I enjoy adding a dash of cinnamon and vanilla to the milk to make the latte all the more indulgent!
7. Matcha Milkshake
This is a milkshake on flavor steroids, for sure. Be warned, this milkshake may bring all the boys to your yard. It’s just that good.
Blend up milk, matcha, ice cream, and a pinch of salt for your new favorite shake.
Light flavor, rich creamy ice cream, and simplicity in a cup. Does it get any better?
8. Matcha Milk Tea
Matcha and boba are taking the world by storm. These Asian ingredients are divine when paired in a sweet and earthy tea.
First, prepare your matcha tea. In your favorite glass, add sweetener, milk, and tapioca pearls.
Top with matcha tea and you have matcha milk tea.
9. Creamy Banana Matcha Smoothie
Everyone knows those over-ripe bananas in your freezer are perfect for smoothies, especially when you add matcha powder!
If simplicity is key in your kitchen, this recipe is the one for you. It has just four ingredients and is ready in minutes. It’s easy to enjoy it any time of day.
10. Turmeric Green Tea Smoothie (Vegan)
I like to call this recipe a super smoothie. It is full of health benefits from the matcha, turmeric, spinach, and avocado.
You can also add chia seeds for the ultimate super smoothie!
Blend your superfoods with almond milk, banana, and honey. You’ll love how clean, creamy, and energizing this smoothie is.

You only need coconut water and matcha powder for this simple refreshing drink.
It’s great as is, but adding some coconut milk makes it irresistibly creamy!

This recipe is naturally sweetened with blueberries and bananas. Cinnamon and ginger add warm notes to elevate the earthy tea flavor.
14. Matcha (Green Tea) Soda
This simple bubbly drink will have you craving homemade soda. Simple syrup, matcha powder, and soda water are all you need.
You actually make matcha syrup with matcha, sugar, and water.
After it’s cooled, pour it over ice and top it with carbonated water. It’s bubbly, green, and tasty!
15. Easy & Refreshing Matcha (Green Tea) Ginger Beer
Who says ginger beer is for mules? Clearly, they haven’t tried matcha ginger beer.
In this recipe, you mix matcha powder with ginger beer. This keeps the drink from getting watered down and helps balance the flavors.
Top it with the remaining ginger beer for a foamy, green drink.
16. Blueberry Matcha Smoothie
Smoothies are probably my favorite use for matcha powder. This is perfectly smooth, filling, and delicious, and it will keep you going all day.

Sophisticated ice cream floats anyone? These are best on a hot summer day or after a filling dinner.
