  • ¼ cup hot water 155-175°F
  • 1 teaspoon matcha powder
  • ¼ cup pineapple juice
  • teaspoon fresh ginger grated (optional)
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • Ice as needed


  • In a small bowl, whisk together the hot water and matcha in an M or W motion until fully combined. Transfer the mixture to the fridge to chill, about 5 minutes.

    matcha poured over a glass of coconut milk.
  • Stir and enjoy!


  • Temperature: The water should be hot, not boiling, to help the matcha dissolve. If it is too cold, it can be lumpy, and if it is too hot, it will burn the matcha and make it bitter.
  • Whisking: Whisk together the matcha and the water really well so that there is no dry powder or lumps remaining.
  • Optional Ingredient: The ginger is optional, but adds a great zing to each sip. Use fresh ginger, and strain the drink into the glass so that it's nice and smooth.
