Green Tea Frappuccino

Thoughts Before Making:

So while Annie Laurence, from Death on Demand, loves her coffee, I am not a fan. I like the smell, but not the taste; I’m a tea girl through and through. Yep, hot or cold I will always drink it.

But there is one other thing besides tea that I will purchase, a Green Tea Frappuccino. I got this recipe from Eugenie Kitchen.

Thoughts After Reading:

I thought this was fantastic and just like the one you would get from Starbucks.

fantastic

The Matcha Green Tea is expensive, but much cheaper than buying the drinks from Starbucks as you get waaay more to drink.

You can also substitute the ice-cream with custard, vanilla yogurt, plain yogurt, greek yogurt, etc. If it is plain or greek you might want to add more sugar.

But I thought this was soo good I have made it over and over.
