I love this recipe! I was sick of spending $5 on the coffee shop version. I made my own vanilla syrup (site will be listed below.) and purchased the Matcha online. The Matcha I got is great quality and a lot less pricy then others I found. I might leave out the sugar next time though. The vanilla syrup is a lot of sugar already.
This is a very awesome recipe! Thanks for posting. I like my latte a bit milkier so I made this with 1 oz water, 5 oz 2% milk. I also used 2 tsp of sugar and one pump melon syrup. Lots of ice. Much better green tea quality and cheaper than getting it at the store plus I can control the amount of sugar and I think the overall volume is just right.
I found that the recipe calls for too many ice cubes -- I suggest to others to add them to the blender one at a time to ensure you don't get an unblendable mush like I did.
WOW - on a whim I bought this matcha green tea powder on our favorite auction web sight and when it came I was so glad I did. This drink is amazing - so refreshing. I prefer the Iced Latte to the Smoothie. I leave out the sugar and use one Tablespoon of the vanilla syrup. Try it - you won't be disappointed - and all the health benefits! Where can I get more recipes? Thanks.
Yummo! I love Matcha Green tea, and this was a real treat :) I used Shizuoka Matcha, with splenda for the sweetner, and skim milk. Thanks for sharing. Nick's Mom
Wonderful and great as a latte for the blender-deprived. I really like the fact that I can control the amount of sweetness...sometimes the stuff from the green mermaid store is just way too sweet and creamy for a warm day. Don't skimp on the vanilla syrup, I think it adds a lot, I prefer to just reduce the sugar if it's too sweet.
This is an easy recipe to follow. Matcha is so versatile. Use less or more matcha to your taste.
Very good! I also made my own vanilla syrup and used 1 ounce water and 5 ounces of milk. I definitely prefer the latte instead of the smoothie as I feel like it gets too watery even using only 5 or 6 ice cubes in the smoothie. Delicious and so easy!
Great recipe. I have a few changes that I do for a smoothie type...use fat free soy or milk based frozen yogurt. It gives it a nice creamy effect. You will then not need the sugar. I usually just eyeball the tea powder (also from online auction), add the yogurt, ice cubes, and a splash of vanilla (not syrup)...just a little bit of a change. Great healthy desert.
