What is a Blueberry Latte?

You can use whipped cream and blueberry syrup for garnishing but watch out for all the excessive calories.

Equipment Required:

How to Make Blueberry Latte More Fun(Variations)

Blueberry latte combines strong iced coffee with a bit of sweetness from blueberries. But you can also make different variations.

Blueberry Matcha Latte

Blueberry Matcha Latte

Instead of a regular blueberry latte, the Blueberry Matcha latte replaces strong coffee with Matcha powder. Matcha is a fine powder of fresh green tea leaves. Matcha has a very distinct vegetal, grassy flavor. It adds a lot of freshness to the drink, especially in summer and if you add ice to the glass. It becomes a refreshing drink with a slightly bitter and umami flavor.

Blueberry Matcha Latte combines blueberries with a strong earthy flavor of Matcha. All you need for this is Blueberries, Matcha powder, and the sweetener of your choice. Adding ice makes it colder and more fun.

Substitutes of Blueberry in Latte

Blueberries are not available everywhere easily, especially fresh. Frozen blueberries are available in supermarkets, but they can be expensive. So even if you don't have blueberries, you can make your latte in many ways.

First, you can make the regular latte with coffee, milk, and ice and use the flavors of blueberries.

Here are some other fruits that you can use:

  • Raspberries: They are a bit sweeter but a good substitute.
  • Cranberries: Cranberries are sourer; you will need more sugar to balance the drink's taste.
  • Strawberries: Even strawberries are tangy and sweet. They will give a pinkish color to your drink and add lots of nutritional value.

Final Words

Blueberry latte is a refreshing summer drink. You need a handful of blueberries and the coffee of your choice. Making this latte is not very difficult. You can make a healthier version by skipping ice cream, cream, and even syrup. Use a milk frother to whip up the milk. Use honey instead of sugar, and the sweetness of honey and blueberries are still good enough.
