Making a CBD Matcha Latte: a Recipe

So, you’ve tried CBD lotion and beauty products, and now you’re ready to experience it in a new way. May I suggest adding CBD oil to a drink?

 

In particular, a matcha latte.

 

As a matcha fan, I was excited to try this combination, and I wasn’t disappointed. It unites the health benefits offered by both matcha and CBD. I call that a win-win. Even though you may not get the typical latte art you see popping up on Instagram when you make a matcha latte at home, the bright green color still makes for a great shot—plus you can say you made it!

 

While you can’t taste the CBD in many types of CBD products, CBD oil is not one of those. You can expect a distinct, earthy flavor, which does come through a bit in drinks. So, you’ll get a slightly different flavor than in a standard matcha latte.

 

Ingredients

1 cup milk (I recommend whole milk, but you can use whatever type you’d like)
1 tsp matcha powder
1 to 2 tbsp of hot water (to mix with matcha)
CBD oil
Sweetener to taste (honey, agave, etc.)

 

Tools

Small pot/saucepan
Matcha whisk

Small bowl
Regular whisk
Mug

 

  1. In a small pot over medium heat, bring your milk to a simmer.
  2. As the milk heats, put the matcha into a small bowl. Pour the hot water in and mix with the matcha whisk until combined. You just need enough water to dissolve the powder, so start with 1 tbsp and add more if needed.
  3. Once the matcha is fully mixed, add it to the milk.
  4. Add in a drop or two of CBD oil. Figure out how many milligrams of CBD you want beforehand. The strength of the oil varies depending on the bottle, but typically a few drops are enough.
  5. Add in sweetener to taste.
  6. Whisk over heat until bubbles form around the pot’s edges. Do NOT bring milk to full boil.
  7. Pour into your mug.
  8. Enjoy!
