It’s March and the Shamrock Shakes are out and if you are sitting at a Starbucks you will probably see more than the usual Matcha Frappuccino being sipped. The one month where it is even cooler to be sipping on a green drink. Green drinks, usually green smoothies or green juices, seem to be a constant in our house. Being a Matcha fan, love a Matcha Latte made with homemade vanilla almond milk sprinkled with cinnamon, I decide to make a healthier and tastier version of a Matcha Frappuccino, a Matcha Milkshake if you will. Thick, rich, and topped with a big scoop or two of Coco Whip, Coconut Whipped Cream! If making this for a dessert or treat I highly recommend making it with vanilla coconut milk ice cream, or vanilla ice cream of choice. If making it for breakfast or looking for a whole food option it is also delicious and can be made with frozen banana or avocado!
What is your favorite green drink?
Makes 1 serving
1c almond milk, coconut milk or non dairy milk of choice (used So Delicious Unsweetened Vanilla Coconut Milk)
1/2c vanilla coconut milk ice cream (used So Delicious Vanilla Bean Coconut Milk Ice Cream)*
2 tsp matcha powder
1/2c ice, optional
optional sweetener of choice, to taste
big scoop, or two, of coconut whip cream (used So Delicious Coco Whip Lite)
*You can also use frozen banana or avocado if desired.
In a Vitamix, or high-speed blenders, blend together almond milk, matcha powder, and ice cream (or banana/avocado) until smooth. Add additional sweetener of choice and ice if desired and blend. Pour into a glass and top with coconut whipped cream. Enjoy!
Ooooh this one is gonna be a big hit, those shamrock shakes are loved by many many people. This seems like a much better version! Thanks so much for linking up lovely lady!

Thank you! Just missing the mint but you could add it if you wanted.
Love how festive this drink is! I haven’t tried matcha yet, but am definitely tempted to since it seems to be popping up everywhere. I think my favorite green drink is a simple green smoothie packed w/ spinach.

I highly suggest trying it but it isn’t for everyone and has a lot to do with how it is prepared. However it has lots of health benefits so you could always just add it to smoothies. A simple green spinach (and banana for me or avocado) always hits the spot, nice choice!
