Shamrock Frappuccino Recipe




About: Instructables Community Manager - I am powered by sugar and rainbows! For realz!

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.


Topping Suggestions:

Coffee Version:

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

    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 :)

    Thank you! I hope you like it :) You can always add more green tea powder once it's blended if you don't think the flavor is strong enough for you.

    is there a suitable alternative for those of us who don't like or don't drink green tea?

    You can just leave it out :) It has been a while since I made this, but I don't think it makes a huge difference in taste. Also, it just won't be green then, but you can add food coloring if you want it to be green.
