Green Tea White Hot Chocolate

I haven’t posted a Thirsty Thursday in a while now, so today’s post is me easing my way back into the swing of things. Read: super easy.

As I said earlier this week, I’ve been keeping warm by alternating between green tea lattes and hot chocolate, so it was only a matter of time before I decided to combine the two. You know, for efficency’s sake.

Green Tea White Hot Chocolate Ingredients

To make one serving, you’ll need 1 cup milk, 1/3 to 1/2 cup white chocolate chips depending on how much sweetness you’re looking for, and 1 teaspoon matcha green tea powder.

After sharing a handful of other green-tea recipes, I’ve noticed that the price of matcha powder can be quite a turnoff.

$25 for 4 ounces?! Are you high? What kind of powder is it really?

That was my initial reaction too, but at an average rate of 1-teaspoon per recipe the stuff goes a long way, and at over 3 dollars a cup over at Starbucks, my matcha investment has more than paid off. So the lesson here is don’t shy away.

Back to the recipe.

In a small saucepan on low, heat the milk and white chocolate chips until the chocolate melts and the mixture comes to a simmer. Whisk constantly to prevent any burning. Once heated through, add the matcha powder and whisk, whisk, whisk until the powder is fully blended in. Remove from heat and top with your favorite hot-chocolate toppings.

The result: a warm and creamy green-tea drink that’s sweet, not bitter. I enjoyed mine with mini marshmallows. Let me know how you enjoy yours.
