Oat Milk Peppermint Matcha from Dogwood Coffee
Our friends at Dogwood Coffee in Northeast Minneapolis never cease to amaze us. They knock everything they do out of the park from their beans, to their cafe spaces, to their barista skills, and recipes. Each season they come out with a variety of creative and surprising new twists on classics.
When it comes to something to sooth the mind body, soul AND tastebuds, our minds go straight to matcha. The health benefits of matcha abound! We could go on and on about all the wonderful reasons to drink it. But today, we just want to sit back and enjoy this lovely drink on a cold winter day in Minneapolis. Few things are as lovely and as beautifully balanced as a matcha latte. And this one blends matcha’s earthy flavors with a subtle sweetness, as well as a fresh hint of mint. The oat milk gives the strong matcha flavor just the right balance. Not to mention the fact that it’s a wonderful reason to spend time at Dogwood.
Thank you to the Dogwood Team for this recipe! Here’s to a fresh new take on a classic.
