my new favourite summer drink

iced matcha oatly latte

· menu

Happy Sunday everyone! It’s kind of becoming a habit of mine to now post on Sunday… It sounds like a good new tradition to me. Almost like a way to reflect upon the past week and see all that’s good and positive in spite of all the craziness. I can’t make any promises it will happen every week but I shall try.

Let’s talk about this beautiful new summer drink of ours… Iced matcha Oatly latte….

today's protagonist | plant on the left was a gift from a regular customer of ours :)

Before getting into what’s in it, I will say this: my partner, Papa Panos, is actually enjoying it quite a fair bit and he doesn’t particularly like either matcha or oat mylk (and he’s a pain with all things food and drink! PS I love him). That should give you an idea of how good it is already!

A refreshing summer drink, w plenty of health benefits + unique nutty buttery flavour + easy to replicate at home (make sure though to buy top quality matcha powder- most of the stuff out there is pure rubbish)
