Dairy Free Strawberry Milk Matcha
During the month of February I want to make everything pink. I have always loved Valentine's Day, I think it's not only the pretty colors involved in the holiday, but because it's a day to tell others how much I love them! I had seen different types of "pink drinks" on social media for years but had never tried one until recently. I think that matcha is the perfect pairing with a pink drink because it already has such a vibrant and pretty green color! This drink is easy to make and naturally sweetened! Perfect for an afternoon pick me up, or even to start to your day!
1 cup dairy free milk of choice ( I use So Delicious unsweetened coconut milk)
1/4 cup frozen or fresh strawberries
1 tsp maple syrup ( if you like a sweeter drink add 2-3 tsp)
1/2 cup ice
1 tsp matcha
2 ounces water
1) First, make the matcha. Combine the 2 ounces of water and 1 tsp matcha in a small dish or cup and whisk until the matcha is combined with the water to make a matcha "shot", set aside.
2) In a blender combine the non-dairy milk, strawberries, and maple syrup. Blend until the berries are incorporated, about 1 minute.
3) Fill a large cup or mason jar with the 1/2 cup of ice. Pour the strawberry milk mixture over the ice.
4) Slowly pour the matcha "shot" over the strawberry milk to create a layer.
