📖 How to make (step-by-step photos)
These easy-to-follow instructions will show you how to shake or stir together a perfect blueberry iced matcha latte just like Dunkin.
1️⃣ Step One: Make blueberry simple syrup
In a small saucepan, over low heat, heat blueberries while mashing with a fork or wooden spoon until they begin to burst and release their juices. To the saucepan, add sugar and water and bring to a medium simmer. Simmer until the sugar dissolves and the syrup thickens (5 to 10 minutes). Allow to cool completely before using.
2️⃣ Step Two: Make the matcha
In a small bowl, add matcha powder and hot water. Mix well with a matcha whisk (or regular whisk) until the powder is fully dissolved.
3️⃣ Step Three: Shake or stir ingredients together
In a cocktail shaker or large glass, mix the blueberry syrup, matcha and milk. Shake or stir well to combine. Pour in a glass with ice and enjoy.
❓ Questions + quick tips
The blueberry matcha latte from Dunkin Donuts uses a sweetened green tea power blend, blueberry concentrated flavor and milk (offering both dairy and dairy-free milk options).
The sweet and subtle earthy flavors of a regular matcha latte are enhanced with bold blueberry flavor to make a smooth, creamy and fruity matcha drink.
This recipe features blueberry simple syrup for flavor. Vanilla, brown sugar, lemon and lavender flavored simple syrups can be used interchangeable in this recipe.
A matcha powder with a vibrant green-hue is generally higher-quality and better tasting. For a budget-friendly and great tasting matcha, we recommend a “ceremonial blend” which is usually within the $15 – $25 price range.
🥛 Matcha latte milk options
To achieve a luscious and creamy latte, you can use whole milk or one of these vegan milk options.
- Soy Milk: a dairy-free milk that gives an extra protein boost
- Coconut Milk: thick and creamy, with a tropical taste twist
- Cashew Milk: a nuttier flavor with a thick consistency
- Oat Milk: a barista favorite, oat milk froths well in hot drinks
- Almond Milk: a milk nut flavor with a thinner consistency
