Traditionally, matcha is consumed with water. However, matcha with milk becomes more and more popular. You can find matcha latte in most coffee shops around the world. You can use as much milk as you want with matcha, But you may wonder which type of milk is best to make matcha latte? Everyone has a different favourite milk to drink and making matcha latte is really super simple so we just invite you to experiment the perfect match for your taste.


ELUXELLA, we like to use soy or oat milk to make our matcha latte, however you can really try any type of dairy, nuts or plant based milks because each of them will just pair up deliciously with matcha.


So, it’s entirely up to you to decide which one soothe your senses and soul better. And remember, every time you’re making a matcha drink which involves milk, feel free to substitute the suggested milk with the one of your choice! One of the things that we love about matcha is its versatility. It can be used in everything from baked goods to smoothies, and it’s unique and earthy taste pairs well with many different flavours. In facts matcha tastes great with pretty much any milk.

Soy milk is made from soybeans and filtered water.

As many are looking for a plant-based beverage, soy milk has now become a well-known dairy milk replacement.

Soy milk falls behind coconut being slightly less creamy.

However, here’s a fun fact: Bonsoy is one of the rare soy milk brands that can produce a silky-smooth milk foam for lattes. This foams just so well! Yay!

Bonsoy is popular because it tastes very similar to dairy milk, and almost foams just as well.

Bonsoy’s soybeans are cooked in a special equipment that removes the distinct bean flavour. Because of that, you won’t have to worry too much about soybean flavour overwhelming matcha, as you enjoy a subtle roasted flavour. There’s also a hint of vanilla peeking through the mild sweetness from the natural soybeans!

We tried soy milk from other brands, but they taste different – they have a much stronger soy taste that can be overpowering.

Oat milk is becoming more and more well-liked. You can literally find it everywhere now and it’s so popular that it is also easy to find in coffee shops as they use it as a dairy alternative. It has a deliciously creamy texture but it doesn’t taste too heavy and can be heated without curdling. If you’re looking for a milk that will easily match with about anything, oat milk is your choice. It’s richer in nutrients than coconut or almond milk but it’s not the heaviest. It’s usually pricier than options, but it is extremely easy to find. Oat milk is another perfect match to matcha.




matcha latte with almond milk, eluxella, matcha latte, matcha powder


Almond milk is definitely a very good starting point. In fact, its texture is very similar to traditional milk (also its flavour is not too far) but with fewer calories. It has a pleasant, nutty flavour and a creamy texture similar to regular milk.

That's why it's a popular choice for vegans and those who are allergic or intolerant to dairy. If you are a matcha beginner and you are not used to the strong umami taste that matcha has, we believe you’ll find that almond milk can be a perfect match!

It requires the most amount of air to create good milk foam. However, as almond milk has significantly low fat content – it is relatively stable when foaming at higher temperatures. Still not bad if you prefer topping your Matcha latte with a light, foamy layer.

The almonds give this almond milk latte strong nutty roasted notes.

If you’re looking for a more balanced taste, you might not like the flavour as it tends to overpower the grassy taste of matcha




matcha latte with coconut milk, matcha latte, eluxella, matcha powder


The coconut milk latte has a diluted mouthfeel and a runny melted yoghurt texture.

Unlike almond milk, it is opaque throughout. The coconut milk also curdles when it heats up, so be careful! It might be best to use it for iced Matcha lattes. Because of the thin milk texture, it does not foam as well!

Coconut matcha milk latte has a subtle tropical flavour from the watered-down coconut cream. It would probably appeal more to those looking for a refreshing spin on matcha latte!
