Most people wake up in the morning and put on the coffee pot to brew a fresh cup of Joe, but coffee can be quite strong and have unpleasant side effects if you drink too much. If you are looking to live a healthier life, quitting coffee may be something to consider. However, just because you aren’t drinking coffee anymore, that doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy a delicious hot beverage in the morning to give yourself a boost of energy.
If you are a person that enjoys a steaming latte in the morning, you should definitely try the green tea latte recipe below. Latte actually means milk, and there is nothing about it that indicates that you need to use coffee. In fact, only the café latte is made with coffee, and there are all kinds of other latte drinks that don’t use coffee. The green tea latte is a delicious drink that you are sure to enjoy, and it will be a much healthier and tastier choice to replace your morning café latte.
The best part about the latte made with green tea is that you can drink it at pretty much any time of the day. Seeing as there is very little caffeine in green tea, you don’t have to worry about getting too much caffeine in the day and over-stimulating your nerves. If you use a natural source of sugar like honey or brown sugar, you don’t have to worry about all the calories. If you use low fat or non-fat milk, you won’t have to worry about the extra fat you get from whole milk. All in all, with a green tea latte, you are getting a low fat drink that is rich in antioxidants, excellent for your health, delightful for your taste buds, and guaranteed to make you feel better all day.
So how is this wonderful drink made?
Step 1: Heat up a cup of milk on the stove in a saucepan. Make sure not to let the milk boil, but remove the pan from the stove just before the milk begins to boil.
Step 2: Mix in a small amount of green tea powder, and stir thoroughly until it is properly mixed in with the milk.
Step 3: Add your sweetener, pour into a cup, sip as desired, and enjoy the deliciously fresh taste of the green tea latte.

Step 1: Brew a pot of green tea.
Step 2: Mix in milk powder until the brew is the desired consistency.
Step 3: Add sweetener and enjoy!
Just like that, you can whip up a cup or two of this delicious brew, and you will find that making a pot of the latte is just as easy as making a single cup. Whether you are making this drink to end your day or to share with your friends, it is guaranteed to be a delight!
