How to Make a Match Latte with an Aeroccino

I love to start my day with an energizing homemade matcha latte. I love how energized green tea makes me feel without the wired feeling that comes with drinking strong coffee.

The traditional hand whisking method of making matcha lattes is time consuming and labor-intensive. And anyway, I don’t own a bamboo whisk.

Enter the Nespresso Aeroccino! If you didn’t know, this is the hot milk frother that comes with Nespresso coffee machines. Just add the milk, switch on to heat/whisk and sprinkle the matcha powder on top.

It will whisk the matcha powder in as it heats the milk for you. I find that I have to use 8oz of milk (this fills the Aeroccino to the MAX line), for the matcha powder to be fully mixed in by the time the whisking is finished.

I like to add a little honey to my latte, but just stir this in when you add the finished latte to the cup, don’t try to add it in to the Aeroccino. You could also add a dusting of cinnamon or other spice if you prefer a spiced latte.

The easy way to make a matcha latte

One of the reasons that this is a great way to make a matcha latte is that the Aeroccino heats the milk to 170°F, which is the ideal temperature to make a matcha latte. Heating the milk any hotter than this with the green tea powder in it could result in the tea becoming burnt.

Probably any automatic milk heater/frother would do, but I have a Nespresso machine (because sometimes I prefer coffee) and so I use the Aeroccino for my matcha lattes. You can buy just the Aeroccino* on its own.
