You can't wait.
You've gotten your hands on some good quality Matcha and you're about to make your own Matcha latte at home!
Fast forward in time and the Matcha latte is ready! You take your first sip and...
Hang on, why is it so clumpy?
If this has ever happened to you, it's likely you weren't using a Matcha whisk.
Fret not, in this article we'll show you how to make frothy Matcha at home, no whisk needed.
What if I don't have a whisk?
No whisk? No problem! There are several alternatives to a Matcha Whisk.
Before we discuss those alternatives, we need to make one thing clear: using a spoon is really NOT ideal!
Instead of breaking up clumps, a spoon often makes even more clumps. The video below speaks for itself.
The following methods are much more effective than a spoon:
Option 1: Electric Milk Frother
Add hot water into a bowl first, followed by sifted Matcha powder.
Use the electric milk frother to whisk until frothy.
Some Matcha may be stuck to the sides of the bowl due to the rigid nature of the whisk.
Option 2: Blender
Add Matcha and hot water directly to the blender and blend until clump-free.
A small blender will work much better than a larger one.
Option 3: Shaker Bottle
Add Matcha and hot (but not boiling) water into a small bottle.
You can recycle a Craft Tea Fox latte glass bottle to do this too!
Cap the bottle tightly and shake vigorously to break up clumps.
Now you know how to prepare a simple cup of Matcha without a whisk, using everyday items in your kitchen!
