Matcha Milkshakes

Matcha Milkshakes /

In case you haven’t noticed, I sort of have a thing for matcha. I know it’s SO trendy… but I personally think it’s exciting to see really great healthy foods become insanely popular. Everyone’s drinking matcha lattes and matcha mochas these days – but now that it’s almost summer, here’s a really simple ice cream treat.

This one’s really more of an idea than a “recipe.” I didn’t even bother breaking out the blender to make these milkshakes because in the spirit of our “grab and go” monthly series with Almond Breeze, I wanted to make these simple enough to shake and run.

Mix a little almond milk and matcha until it’s well combined (you can use a regular whisk if you don’t have a cute match whisk). Add it to a jar with a scoop or two of ice cream. Shake it and stir it until it gets a little melty and enjoy!

    Sounds absolutely delicious! I’ll share this with the cooking and food fanatics on and they can make this together

  3. This is probably my favorite drink for the summer season! Matcha and vanilla are made for each other =) If you add some sweet azuki to it, it will add a nice texture for sipping!
