I'm cray cray about matcha recently as evidenced by my Matcha Madeleines (gf) and Matcha Coconut Mochi (gf) recipe.
|Matcha powder. I use Do Matcha, which is an organic green tea|
|Get your Vitamix out for this. Starbucks uses these commercial-grade blenders to finely slushify ice-cubes.|
If you love green tea ice-cream this Matcha Milkshake is for you. Watch out though or you'll get a brain freeze slurping too fast. This is me. Always.
My recipe can be easily made dairy-free by substituting almond or coconut milk instead of the milk and coconut milk ice-cream for regular ice-cream. If you like it creamy, use full-fat milk; if not, you can use straight water. I used water and it was just fine.
|I used Costco's Kirkland brand Vanilla Ice Cream for my milkshake.|
Matcha Milkshake (makes one serving)
1 tablespoon matcha
2 scoops vanilla ice cream (or dairy free coconut milk ice-cream)
1/2 cup milk or water (coconut or almond milk)
2 cups ice
1. Place milk and matcha in Vitamix blender and blend on low speed until mixed thoroughly.
2. Add rest of the ingredients; starting at a low speed, gradually increase speed until milkshake is smooth and ice is fine and slushy. Use that vitamix stomper to get that ice going if you need to.
