Taste the rainbow with this whipped, fruity version of a matcha latte. Just blend your preferred nondairy milk with frozen fruit for the base, then top with a whipped matcha foam that uses aquafaba--the liquid from a can of chickpeas--to make the beverage completely vegan. (The drink also works very well with cow's milk if you don't mind it not being vegan.) A pinch of sugar subtly enhances the matcha's bitterness, but feel free to add more to your taste.

  • Whisk matcha and sugar together in a large bowl. Add aquafaba and beat with an electric mixer until the mixture transforms into a fluffy, foamy whipped topping, about 2 minutes. (Alternatively, you can use a stand mixer or a whisk: whisk as fast as you can.)

  • Spoon the whipped matcha over the fruit milk and serve immediately.
