    When you need a break from coffee, this iced honey matcha soy latte definitely hits the spot.

    In attempts to limit my coffee intake (limit- I can’t ever quit coffee, but I do need variety here and there), I’ve been making this iced honey matcha soy latte. I’ve made it so much since returning from Japan last month that I’ve wiped through all the matcha I bough while abroad. Luckily, matcha is now readily available at numerous supermarkets. (Whew!)

    This latte gives me the kick of energy I need post lunch during that sleepy afternoon lull when I all I want to do is crawl onto the couch and take a nap. I’ve made so much over the past few weeks that it’s become my little tea ceremony. It’s a ritual that I look forward to. I feel more relaxed. I’m always in a better mood (mentally and emotionally) after a good cup of matcha.

    There are two secrets to making my honey matcha soy latte…

    Secret number one are the tools photographed above: a bar shaker, pint glass, and a metal mixing ball.

    Do you drink protein shakes? Or have a roommate/boyfriend/workout buddy that uses a shaker to mix protein shakes? Sure, you do. Borrow that metal shaker/mixing ball. It’s the perfect little gadget for breaking up clumps of matcha powder. It also helps shake up the soy milk to make the drink nice and frothy.

    Secret number 2 is honey syrup. Have you ever tried mixing honey into cold drinks? It’s a mess. The honey doesn’t dissolve. You end up with globs of honey. Honey syrup is the answer and it’s simple to make. Ask anyone that has been to my kitchen. There is always a jar of honey syrup on the counter.

    To make honey syrup combine 2 parts honey with 1 part water. Set over medium heat and stir until honey dissolves. That’s it! Add honey to your cold beverages with ease and smile.

    1. Add mixing ball to bar shaker. Add matcha, water, soy milk, and honey syrup. Cover shaker and shake for 10-15 seconds. Add a handful of ice.
