I bet you know damn well about this Matcha Frappé.  I’m not going to write the word as that is a trademark product which is registered under a Seattle’s world famous coffee shop.

Matcha is green tea powder in Japanese.  I didn’t realize that I have this pic that I took on November 2010.  I was thinking it’s a good time to post this Matcha Frappé this week since the weather is a bit warmer here.  FYI, When I crave for something like ice cream or frappé, I don’t really care what season we have.  As long as I feel like having it, I will enjoy my ice cream in the winter. 🙂

Matcha is something that I enjoy as much as coffee and chocolate.  I often add matcha to my morning smoothie for breakfast.

Matcha (Green Tea) Frappé

2 teaspoons matcha (green tea powder)
200 mL (7 oz) almond milk (you can use soy milk, rice milk, 2% milk, evaporated milk, or condensed milk)
add sugar, agave nectar, stevia or vanilla flavoured syrup to your liking
ice cubes
whipped cream

In a blender, process all ingredients until well-mix. Transfer to each two serving glass. Spray whipped cream on top.

Cook’s Note:
* A blender that has a square jug/glass will process better than the round one. If you don’t know what I’m talking about here, please pay attention when you go to a coffee shop that serves a frappé or smoothie. See how the blender looks like.

  1. I like my ice cream year round as well! This sounds like a really refreshing drink, I have some matcha powder a friend offered me that will have to go towards this!

  2. All, thank you for the comment and please do let me know if you have tried this.

    @Steve: I use a Canon Digital Rebel XTi or the European and Asia-Pacific version of EOS 400D

  3. I love green tea latte's but have yet to use the matcha powder for an iced version. I'll bet this would go nicely into a smoothie as well! Green Tea/Banana something! Such a simple treat!

  4. Oh this reminds me of a drink I had in Starbucks in China (where it's viewed as quite a fancy place). I bet this is even tastier!

  5. This sounds very refreshing…! I love green tea frappe/ice cream, pity that it's extremely hard to find matcha here…:(!

  6. This is perfect timing. My granddaughter just asked me last night where to buy green tea to make this drink. And now I even have a recipe. Thanks.
