Recipe For Green Tea Frappuccino
The recipe is extremely simple and the ingredients required can be found at home. If you don’t have the ingredients, they aren’t hard to find. You can buy them locally and use them again in several other recipes.
Here is what and how much of it you will need for this green tea frappuccino:
- 1 cup full-fat milk
- 1 tsp green tea blend (Matcha blend recommended)
- 2 tbsp white or brown sugar (as per preference)
- 4 ice cubes
- ½ cup whipped cream
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 tsp chocolate syrup
In a blender throw in the full-fat milk, green tea, sugar, vanilla extract, and ice cubes. Blend it well, approximately for about 1 to 2 minutes or until the ingredients have fully blended into liquid form. Once blended, pour the liquid into a cup or tall glass. Top it off with some whipped cream and chocolate syrup. If you do not like chocolate syrup, you can use crushed almonds, walnuts, peanuts, or cashews as per your liking.
Why Make Your Green Tea Frappuccino at Home?
You may be wondering why you should do all this work when you can go out and buy one for yourself. Making it yourself gives you the freedom to choose the ingredients yourself. You can add or subtract ingredients, all depending on what type of flavor you’re trying to go for. This also gives you more control over the number of calories you ingest.
If you were to visit a local coffee/tea shop, a ready-made drink could have any type of ingredients. This normally makes it harder to keep track of everything you’re putting in your body.
When you make your green tea frappuccino yourself, you can choose which blend of green tea goes in your drink. If you like a certain blend you may find it hard to get it in cafes because they use the ones that sell the most and make them the most money. This could lead to a quality of drink that is, well, questionable.
When you make it yourself, you will also realize it is not as expensive as those big brands charge you for it. Be careful though, you may never want to spend another penny on green tea frappuccinos when you can whip it up for yourself at home with this great recipe.
