Tres Leches Matcha Latte
A classic tres leches cake Tres leches is a soft, and light spongy custard cake that’s soaked through with a sweet, milky sauce. The unique combination of different kinds of milk and cream creates a light but rich flavor that’s ideal for adding bolder flavors like caramel and toasted coconut. The tres leches matcha latte is basically this cake, in a glass. Condensed coconut milk provides the perfect amount of sweetness while coconut shavings and a caramel drizzle give this drink its razzle-dazzle. All the while, matcha’s working in the background to give a grounding nuttiness and superfood power. It’s a cake, in a cup, what more can we say?

If you want to take this drink to the next level, add a sprinkle of cinnamon for a fall twist or a squeeze of lime for something summery fresh. Or, keep things simple and forgo all additional toppings to enjoy a primarily matcha-fueled beverage. Thank you again to Kaylie for creating this delicious recipe.
