Matcha Honey Hot Chocolate with Toasted Marshmallows.
This might get me on the right track to consuming more green.
I feel like it’s inappropriate for me to even share a recipe containing matcha since I barely know how to pronounce it. I mean, I KNOW how to pronounce it. But I always want to pronounce it as “maaaaahtcha,” like “I need to light a match” instead of “m-awe-tcha,” like “oh this is so AWEsome.”
Sort of also like how I say keee-no-waah when I offer Eddie quinoa for dinner. It’s become such an annoying staple that I often forget the correct pronunciation.
Or! Or. I can’t help but say that I’m having an “ah-kai” bowl instead of “awe-sigh-eeee” bowl. When I’m making an acai bowl.
So really, should I even be allowed to share a matcha re?!
Here’s the thing. It took me awhile to get on the matcha bandwagon because I think that tea tastes like dirty water. Coffee also sort of tastes like dirty water, but if you add sugar and cream to coffee, it tastes like ice cream. If you add sugar and cream to tea, it tastes like sugary dirty water.
The first time I had matcha, it was very much a combination of dirty water and green grass. I’m not sure if this green grass added something wonderful or terrible, but when I added sugar… I LIKED IT.
I actually liked it.
I’ve tried my hand at a few matcha desserts and while I never love it alone, I really enjoy it when it’s combined with chocolate, especially dark chocolate. I figured that whole thing might work with white chocolate too and this is where it took me.
And guess what?
The white chocolate is the BEST combination.
White chocolate isn’t even my favorite chocolate but it’s my favorite when combined with matcha. So creamy and sweet and herby in a good way.
And! This hot chocolate is made with coconut milk too. You could use all coconut milk if you’d like, but I used a mix of coconut and cow’s milk. It has that light hint of coconut and is just so flavorful that I can hardly stand it.
Want to know a secret? I am craving a big snow. I want a huge blizzard if only so we can cuddle on the couch and watch movies after playing in the snow and sled riding. I can’t believe that it’s the end of January and we haven’t really had one good snow yet, so I’m willing it to happen with multiple mugs of hot chocolate.
Even if most of the time my brain is thinking BEACH.

Would an extra chocolate drizzle be too much?

Omg! The flavors in this hot chocolate sounds sooo amazing. I can already imagine the decadence of white chocolate and coconut milk together. And I would never have thought to add honey to hot chocolate. I seriously cannot wait to make this!!
This looks so delicious! I want to try this today when the kids are down for quiet time!

How do you toast the mini marshmallows? A torch?
This recipe & these pictures are so cozy. I just want to curl up in a blanket with my hands wrapped around a steaming mug of this right now!
I’ve never had white chocolate mixed with matcha before but it sounds delicious!

WOW. So pretty Jessica!
The first thing I did after I read this recipe was open my Starbucks app and customize this exact drink. First thing this morning I sent my order to the Starbucks across the street. It is so good! And you can even add the chocolate drizzle on top thru the app! I find ordering super custom drinks is much easier on the app so I don’t stand there and tell them in 50 words exactly what I want. Green tea latte- sub coconut milk- add white chocolate syrup add honey add chocolate drizzle on top is only a few clicks away when the craving for this strikes. Thank you for this awesome combination and inspiration for my morning drink!

Absolutely delicious!! However, I found that about 6 oz of chocolate was enough for me?
A reading this post, I am going to have to do my research on “Matcha” as its something I have never heard of before.
Nice pictures with the post.

I love Matcha! I usually add it to smoothies in the morning, but this recipe might convince me to make a cup of these instead. Hooray for chocolate (even if it is white chocolate) for breakfast!

I really am not a fan of white chocolate, the darker the better, but this actually looks amazing! I will absolutely be trying this when it gets chilly. It’s still in the 80s in TX, so not quite hot chocolate weather. Can’t wait for a chill though!
