I was out running errands the other day when a craving for a Matcha Frappe hit me. Funny thing is I've never had a matcha frappe before but I had a very specific idea in mind of how it should taste - kind of like a light smoothie with a matcha flavour, refreshing and tad bit sweet. Mmm...
I concocted a quick recipe in my head as I drove home and made a mental check list of what I needed:
matcha powder ✓
almond milk ✓
vanilla extract ✓
Ok let's do this.
VEGAN MATCHA FRAPPE FOR 1
1 1/4 cup of ice
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 tsp of matcha powder (mine is from SBT Seabuckthorn)
1 tbsp of agave (add more or less depending on how sweet you like it)
1 teeny tiny splash of vanilla extract
- In a blender, add all of the ingredients and mix on high until ice is completely crushed.
- Pour frappe into a mason jar. Add a straw & garnish with mint to make it pretty.
Success. It tastes exactly the way I wanted!
FRAPPE MAKING TIP: The more you mix the frappe in the blender, the more the ice will clump together but don't worry, you'll be able to sip it through a straw. If your frappe is clumped together, use a spoon pour it into a glass so you don't make a mess like I did.
Special thanks to the lovely people at SBT Seabuckthorn for sending me an advance of their new Wellness Matcha.
