It only looks like spinach!
As I was about to try to make my own recipe, I found this one in my new "Hungry Girl: 200 Recipes under 200 Calories" book. This one is a bit sweeter than I would like and doesnt include the melon flavoring; so I will probably post another version of this once I make one.

Makes 24 oz drink.

FYI...The matcha is pretty expensive from Whole Foods...like $25 for a small container. I heard that you can get a larger container from Amazon.com for about $20.

  • Step 1

    These aren't the directions from the book...

    In a blender glass: add milk, syrup, powdered creamer, matcha, sugar substitute and ice.

    Blend well, and top with reddi wip.

This is fab with mint instead of vanilla syrup.

Tastes JUST like Laura Secord's mint ice cream. Happy

I work at starbucks .. .and I drink this RELIGIOUSLY.


it's hard not to. but this recipe totally makes sense.

since they've taken melon out of the equasion ... I use vanilla flavoring ... it's totally better. try that!

omg, I can't wait to try this. $20 is a bit steep for matcha, but I'm sure it makes quite a few drinks.

Thanks for posting this!
