Lower-Calorie Milk Option
Use a lower-calorie milk alternative, such as unsweetened almond milk or coconut milk, to reduce the overall calorie content of the latte while still maintaining a creamy texture and delightful taste.
Enhanced Matcha Flavor
Increase the amount of matcha powder slightly to intensify the green tea flavor, creating a more pronounced matcha taste that stands out even amidst the sweetness of the brown sugar.
You can also switch to a higher grade of matcha powder for a more authentic matcha flavor, like ceremonial matcha. If you are confused about the different grades of matcha, we recommend you check out this article 👉 A guide to Matcha Grades that actually makes sense
Whipped Cream Topping
Top your brown sugar matcha latte with a dollop of homemade or store-bought whipped cream. The airy and delightful texture of whipped cream complements the latte's richness and adds an extra layer of indulgence.
Add a pinch of warming spices like cinnamon or nutmeg to the brown sugar syrup during its preparation. These spices lend a delightful aroma and an extra touch of warmth to the latte.
If you really want to spice things up, you can add some turmeric to your brown sugar matcha latte. For more information about that, we recommend you check out our recipe 👉 The Glorious Glowing Golden Matcha Latte Recipe
For a refreshing twist, skip the crushed ice and make it an iced latte. Let the brown sugar syrup cool completely, then pour it over ice before adding the matcha concentrate and oat milk. A perfect treat for warm days!
