Green Tea Frappuccino (Starbucks Copycat)

My go-to drink at Starbucks has been either their green tea frappuccino or green tea latte for years.  I have been a huge fan of matcha everything since I tried so many fun desserts made with matcha in Japan a few years ago and I am always making recipes using it! I am so excited to be sharing this copycat starbucks green tea frappuccino recipe today as it tastes just like the $4 drink I get at Starbucks but it is way cheaper to make!

All you need to make this recipe is matcha powder, vanilla ice cream, milk, and ice.  Yup, it’s that easy.  If you don’t have matcha on hand already, you can get matcha for a few dollars right on Amazon, local health food store, or Asian market.  There are so many amazing recipes you can use it in, it is worth having!

    This sounds great. And given the price Starbucks charges for drinks like this, I appreciate a good make at home version.

    I love matcha, but have never tried the Starbucks frappuccino. This is so easy to make at home, though, that I think I’ll definitely skip the line and make your (dairy-free) version instead!
