I first saw this Iced Strawberry Matcha Latte on social media (along with pretty much everyone else!) and literally ran to my kitchen to figure recreate this popular Starbucks recipe. It’s so good, lightly sweet, and honestly so beautiful to look at. Plus, it requires just 10 minutes to make, which is less time than it would take for me to drive to a Starbucks.

Speaking of Starbucks, that’s where this drink originated from. But I can’t bring myself to buy it when it’s so simple to make at home. Plus, DIY-ing it costs less and has better ingredients. This Iced Strawberry Matcha Latte starts by chopping up strawberries and sugar, then adding your milk of choice and matcha. I’ve been absolutely loving it as an afternoon pick-me-up (matcha has caffeine after all!).

Recipe At a Glance

Cuisine Inspiration: American
Primary Cooking Method: No-Cook
Dietary Info: Vegetarian
Key Flavor: Strawberries and matcha
Skill Level: Easy

  • Refreshing: This Iced Strawberry Matcha is one of my NEW favorite things to make when it’s hot out.
  • Simple: It has just four ingredients (not including the ice and hot water, of course).
  • Fast: You’ll need just 10 minutes to mix up this drink. I’ve even made it in between meetings!

Ingredients to Make a Strawberry Matcha Latte

  • Strawberries: Fresh strawberries will have the best texture and be easy to chop up with the sugar, but you can use frozen, thawed berries instead.
  • White sugar: You’ll chop up the strawberries with sugar to make a strawberry puree without having to use an appliance.
  • Matcha: This tastes earthy and slightly bitter.
  • Hot water: You’ll whisk this with the matcha to make it smooth.
  • Milk: You can use any kind, including oat milk.
  • Use a different berry. Instead of strawberries, use raspberries or even blueberries.
  • Try strawberry jam. If you can’t find fresh strawberries, use a couple of tablespoons of strawberry jam whisked with a little hot water to thin it out.
  • Add another flavoring. I’ve tried a little bit of vanilla extract, vanilla syrup, and even a squeeze of lime juice in this strawberry matcha latte.

How to Make Strawberry Matcha Latte

You’re 10 minutes away from this summery, refreshing drink.

Prepare the Strawberries

Step 1: Place the strawberries on a cutting board.
Step 2: Coarsely chop the strawberries.
Step 3: Add the sugar directly on top of the strawberries.
Step 4: Continue to coarsely chop until the berries are muddled.

Mix the Matcha Powder

Step 5: Place the matcha powder in a small bowl.
Step 6: Add half of the hot water, mix until smooth, then add the rest of the water and whisk.

Assemble the Strawberry Iced Matcha Latte

Step 1: Add the strawberry puree to a glass.
Step 2: Add ice on top of the strawberry puree.
Step 3: Pour the milk over the ice.
Step 4: Slowly pour the whisked matcha on top of the milk.

Tips for Making the Best Iced Strawberry Matcha Latte

  1. Very, very finely chop the strawberries. You want the strawberries to be so fine that they’re easy to drink through a straw and that you get bits of berries with each sip.
  2. Make a double batch of the strawberry puree. I’ll sometimes do this to make my week a little easier. If making a double batch of strawberry puree, make sure to use an extra-large cutting board so the berries are contained. I’ve also made it in a food processor, pulsing the food processor so that the strawberries don’t become too pureed.
  3. Use boiling water. I always make sure to use very hot or boiling water when I’m making this latte so that the matcha is easy to whisk and get clump-free.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you store a strawberry matcha latte?

Does matcha taste with good with strawberries?

I love the combination of matcha and strawberries! The earthy, bitterness of the matcha is delicious with the sweet berries.

I had to put down my Iced Strawberry Matcha Latte so I could finish this post and tell you exactly how refreshing this drink is. I’ve made it with pretty much every type of milk (dairy, almond, oat, coconut, pistachio) and it never fails to be delicious.

    What matcha do you use?

  2. Darlene says:

    That’s a ton of sugar for one serving! Any substitutes and if so how much of each?

    1. Yumna J. says:

      I haven’t tried any alternative sweeteners but honey might work! Honey is a little bit sweeter, so I would try 2 tablespoon and 2 teaspoons of honey added to the strawberries before muddling. Let me know how it turns out if you try it!

  3. Alexis says:

    How much sugar do you use? It just says 1/4 on the recipe, so I tried a 1/4 tbsp and it was very bitter still 😂 needs more sweetness for sure

    1. Yumna J. says:

      Oops, it should be 1/4 cup sugar! Just updated the recipe, thank you so much for pointing that out!! It should taste much sweeter now haha.
