This vibrant 5-ingredient matcha “frappuccino” will invigorate and provide calm, focused alertness all in one creamy, icy beverage!
Matcha green tea is mild and aromatic with grassy notes and a clean flavor. Catechins in this green tea help support a healthy gut microbiome for optimal digestion and immune health.
Matcha green tea is especially high in antioxidants due to concentrated amounts of chlorophyll, the green pigment that gives matcha its signature color. This is because matcha is grown in the shade resulting in less photosynthesis and increased chlorophyll. Chlorophyll helps the body make hemoglobin (red blood cells) that delivers oxygen throughout the body. More oxygen throughout the body helps support healthy circulation and body functions.
If you’re looking for focused, calm energy, reach for green tea instead of coffee for a jitter-free fuel for the day. L- theanine is the amino acid responsible for creating this sustainable energy. Because there is a small amount of caffeine in green tea, opt to drink it in the morning or early afternoon.
A Dairy-Free Delight
For the ultimate icy frappuccino, matcha, unsweetened almond milk, frozen banana, and ice are blended until smooth and thick. Using dairy-free ingredients makes this recipe easier to digest for those sensitive to lactose. Half a frozen banana adds rich texture, natural sweetness, and potassium to the frappuccino. Finish your frappuccino with a generous swirl of dairy-free whipped cream for a frosty drink that refreshes on the hottest days!
