This yerba mate latte recipe uses whole milk and sugar for a rich texture and full flavor. Variations include vegan yerba mate lattes and honey yerba mate lattes.

Prep Time: 3 minutes

Cook Time: 6 minutes

Total Time: 9 minutes

Yield: One serving


  • 5 ounces simmering water
  • 3 tbsp. whole milk
  • 1 tbsp. loose-leaf yerba mate
  • Sugar or vanilla sugar (to taste)


  1. Combine the simmering water and the whole milk.
  2. Place the yerba mate into an in-cup infuser. Place the infuser into a mug and slowly pour the liquid over it, allowing the liquid to seep in as you would when using a manual drop coffee filter.
  3. Brew for four to six minutes, depending on desired strength.
  4. Add sugar to taste.
  5. Stir with a spoon, or froth with a frother for a more latte-like texture.
