What if your next glass of lemonade could be both refreshing and energising? Well, this matcha lemonade is just that — and has no added sugars!

This green tea lemonade is a fun Japanese twist on the classic cloudy lemonade. You may have seen it or tried it at Starbucks, but now you can give it a go at home using three simple (and healthy) ingredients!

All you need is round green tea powder (AKA matcha), lemons, and a zero-sugar sweetener like erythritol. And if you want extra lemony flavour, add a few drops of lemon essence as we did!

Put it all together, and you'll get a truly recharging drink with a vibrant green hue. It will quench your thirst and boost your energy all in one swoop!

And it's not just delicious, but good for you too.

Once you've cut out those nasty added sugars, this iced green tea lemonade is pure health. Lemon juice loads it with vitamin C, while matcha boosts it with tons of beneficial antioxidants. Awesome!

So, grab a tall glass, have some ice cubes ready, and let's make this wonderful matcha lemonade together!

Step 1

Start by making the sweet syrup base for the lemonade.

Add the sugar-free erythritol sweetener to 50 mL of warm water, stir well until dissolved, and let the syrup cool down in the fridge.

For alternatives to erythritol, check the tips below.

Working in another cup, add matcha powder to 50 mL of hot water and stir well until it's fully dissolved and there are no lumps.

Then, let the tea cool down in the fridge or freezer.

  • You can swap erythritol with other sweeteners like stevia or monk fruit. But check the packet directions for substitutions, as every brand is a little different and may contain blends of various sweeteners.

  • If you don't mind a nice tangy lemonade, you can even try it without any sweetener. We tried it and liked it too!

  • Alternatively, you can replace the sweetener with regular white sugar in a 1:1 ratio if you don't need the lemonade to be sugar-free.

  • If you liked the recipe, try using limes instead of lemons for a green tea "limeade"!
