Introduction: Shamrock Frappuccino Recipe
Why not have a themed frappuccino for St. Patrick's Day. This recipe is a nice mix of peppermint, vanilla, and matcha green tea powder. It makes for a pretty tasty drink that is even green. StarbucksSecretMenu came up with this frappuccino and I've simply made it so you can craft it at home with your own ingredients.
Step 1: Supplies
This recipe is a single serving and makes about the equivalent of a 16oz Grande from Starbucks.
- 2c Ice
- 3/4c Milk / or / Half & Half
- 2 tbsp Vanilla Syrup
- 2 tbsp Peppermint Syrup
- 2 tbsp Simple Syrup (or sugar, but simple syrup blends in better)
- 1.5 - 2 tbsp Matcha Green Tea Powder
- Pinch of Xantham Gum (optional)
- Whipped Topping
- Green Tea Powder
Replace milk with Strong Coffee, but I don't know how coffee will taste with green tea.
Step 2: Blend and Top
Blend everything together until smooth.
Top with whatever feels right. I stuck with whipped topping and some more matcha green tea powder.
Step 3: Enjoy
We have a be nice policy.

Hi Penelopy, this frappuccino looks delicious and we're ready to try it out! Do you really need 1.5-2 tbsp of the matcha green tea powder? Not teaspoons? Cause the directions on the can we bought says you only need 0.5-1 tsp per cup of boiled water (if you're making a hot tea out of it)...
Unfortunately, it's been a few years since I've made this drink, but I'm, pretty sure I did mean tablespoons. The safe bet is to always start with less and then add more if you need it :)
