Delicious green tea powder blended into a creamy drink that's better than Starbucks Green Tea Frappuccino®. I use DoMatcha as it is the best quality around; it is expensive, however, and a little goes a long way.

Cook's Notes:

Adjust the thickness of the frappe by increasing or decreasing the amount of ice according to your tastes. I like thick icy drinks.

Please don't use contents of green tea tea bags, it's a whole different taste than matcha.

You can substitute almond milk, rice milk, or soy milk for the milk. I notice almond milks leaves a distinct after taste.

This recipe is versatile in its ingredient amounts, you can add more ice it you want it thicker, more matcha green tea powder if you want it thicker, or more vanilla syrup if its not sweet enough.

I added 2 cups of ice cubes but it was still not thick enough so I added an extra cup. It was very bland even with 1 1/2 tsp of matcha powder. It will be a good recipe with some adjustments. Read More

I used almond milk and added a pkg of truvia for a little extra sweetness. Since this was my breakfast I also added protein powder. This is a very good recipe which can easily be adjusted for personal tastes. Read More

I used half chocolate cashew milk and half regular added a little stevia and skipped the whipped cream because I don't do dairy - tasted awesome! Read More

It definitely needs more matcha, so I used 1 tablespoon. I substituted heavy whipping cream for the whipped cream which increased the ketogenic factor! Delicious! Read More

Loved this refreshing matcha treat! Most of the reviews suggested to add more matcha so I used 1 tablespoon and it turned out great! I didn’t have any vanilla syrup so I used vanilla extract and sugar. Overall, a wonderful drink! Read More

Refreshing and tasty! I did use almond milk. I also used 5 ice cubes and it came out very thin not like I would expect a frappe to be. Maybe increasing the ice cubes would thicken it? For the matcha green tea powder I went according to the instructions on my container. It mentioned 3 tblsp which I used and this had very good flavor. I also used a packet of Stevia and 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract for in place of the sweetener listed. Thanks for this good drink recipe! Oh just realized I forgot to add the whipped cream....next time!

I used homemade vanilla syrup and only 1/2 tsp of the matcha powder, and this was wonderful. I may increase the matcha next time, now that I know how strong this particular brand is. Thanks for a great recipe! Read More
