Hi Bold Bakers!

I have to tell you honestly that drinking green tea is not my bag. I’m an Irish Breakfast Tea kinda gal. However, when it comes to Green Tea Starbucks Frappuccinos I’m down. I’ll admit the added sweetness in their Frappuccino does make the drink that much more delicious. The kind of sweetness that you know can’t be good for you. The kind that makes you think to yourself how many calories is this? My answer to you is “don’t ask questions that you don’t want the answers to.”

Like a lot of people Starbucks is part of my everyday routine. In the morning I go for a tall Flat White to wake me up and then on birthdays and special occasions I get a Frappuccino. The reason I reserve them for these times is because they can tend to be heavy on the caloric side. Now I’m sure you know me well enough by now to know I’m not a calorie counter, but after a few regular visit to Starbucks those calories start to add up.

In my humble opinion, my Frappuccinos taste just like the real thing but without the pumps of syrups and artificial flavors. Let’s try making them with all natural ingredients and let the results speak for themselves. I think our waistlines and wallets will thank us. 

Starbucks in all of its wisdom has created over 30 flavors of Frappuccinos because they happen to be their best selling drink. Out of those 30 flavors, Green Tea Frappuccino is their second most popular drink they sell. It’s mind blowing to get your head around, however I can see why. If you can’t find Matcha Powder where you live, you can always order it here on Amazon.

Like a lot of my recipes these are customizable to suit you. If you don’t like strawberries, use raspberries. If you don’t eat dairy use dairy-free milk like almond or soy. There really aren’t any strict rules you have to follow when it comes to these drinks. And on that note, come up with your own flavors, nothing is written in stone, get creative.

Love this recipe. But I’m just curious, would you know how many calories are in this?

Hey! Where I live the green tea frappe isn’t on the menu but I got the chance of trying it on a trip and i loved it! However I couldn’t find good matcha here too, and I read that matcha and green tea are quite similar (difference in processing or something) so I was wondering what kind of an effect it would have if i used green tea powder?
Thanks ????

I couldn’t wait to try the recipe for Starbucks Matcha Green tea Frappacino. But I had to throw it away . It taste so awful .
I don’t understand what I did wrong .
The guy at Starbucks says they add a simple syrup .

I wouldn’t add too much vanilla as the taste is very strong

I never leave comments.. literally on anything… but… this was freaking genius! I really wanted Starbucks green tea frappe and I didn’t want to walk there (it’s like a 5 min walk but I’m lazy asf and was still in my pjs ahahahahah) sooo I had green tea matcha powder and a blender and was like hmmm lemme find what I can do with this. Bam. I’m awake now and my craving’s fulfilled. Now I can get all my work done, soo seriously, thank you for this genius recipe!

i really enjoyed the recipe! i would like to add that, in order to keep it from separating, add a little bit of fruit fresh! it doesn’t change the flavor at all either!

Normally I don’t ever leave reviews but I just wanted to say that this recipe is AMAZING!! It tastes JUST like Starbuck’s green tea Frappuccino. The only thing I did different was add the matcha in smaller increments and I found that 1/2 tbs was enough for me. But seriously, this recipe is the best. Thank you!
