2 cups 1% milk fat vitamin D fortified milk
1 1⁄2 teaspoons matcha powder
1 tablespoon hot water (boiling is ideal)
1 1⁄2 tablespoons maple syrup
In a blender, blend milk for about 30 seconds, until frothy. In a small bowl, dissolve matcha powder in hot water. Add milk, dissolved matcha, and maple syrup to a small pot and heat over medium heat for about 5 minutes, until hot but NOT boiling. The mixture should be very frothy but if it reaches boiling, the froth will start to disappear. Serve warm.
