Lauren’s Grain-Free Matcha Horchata

My husband and I finally got to have a day date and left the kids at home with the amazing grands…I cant even begin to tell you the last time we went anywhere sans kids for the day! Well, of course, I got to choose the lunch location and I picked my favorite: True Food Kitchen! After indulging in ALL the food, I decided to cap the meal with their matcha horchata and it was DELICIOUS! Seriously, SO GOOD! I quickly realized that I must make my own version at home, so here it is! This is my grain-free matcha horchata. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

Lauren’s Grain-Free Matcha Horchata

Ingredients:

  • 8-10 oz water
  • 1/2 tsp organic matcha
  • 1 tsp raw honey (or more – depending on how sweet you want it)
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla powder
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • Heaping TB of coconut milk (or 1/2 cup – then reduce water to 1/2 cup)

Directions:

Combine all ingredients, minus the honey, in a small saucepan and gently warm, mixing/stirring while it warms. Pour the warm liquid into your cup of preference and stir in the honey. Sip and enjoy!

*Reason why I state heaping TB of coconut milk is that I use a very thick coconut milk brand, thus when I get some, it is not a liquid and more of a cream. So I just spoon out a heaping TB into the saucepan and mix it with the water. If your coconut milk is more watery, I would suggest just using that all together. You could also swap the coconut milk with a different dairy-free milk of your choosing, like cashew milk, oat milk, almond milk, etc.
