Matcha Green Tea Slushie with Boba

Lord knows, I love matcha. I drink tea almost every day of my life. It starts my day and when I'm feeling a bit droopy, it invigorates me. I try to mix it up though, which probably explains why I have 20+ boxes and canisters of tea in my cupboard. I know, it's a bit excessive. Till the end of time, though, my heart will always have a deeper, special spot for matcha. 
When I saw this recipe, I immediately knew I had to make it. It was a simple recipe which I happened to have all of the ingredients for, score! I love when that happens. Anyways, this slushie was exactly like any other matcha green tea slushie you'd get from a tea house! It was perfect: icy, smooth, filled to the brim with matcha flavor and just perfectly sweet. Of course, those little chewy balls of starchy goodness are always welcome too. One ounce of sweetener is the perfect amount - it was just enough to balance out the bitterness of the matcha. 


Matcha Green Tea Slushie with Boba
Yields: 18 oz. (1 - 2 servings)
Original recipe here.

16 oz. cup filled with crushed ice
milk, soy milk or almond milk
1 1/2 tbsn. matcha green tea powder
1 oz. Ghiradelli white chocolate syrup (or 1 oz. 1:1 simple syrup)
1/4 cup boba, cooked per package directions

Pour the milk over the ice in the glass until full. Empty the contents into a blender, add the matcha powder and white chocolate syrup. Blend everything until it looks like slushie. Place the boba in the bottom of the glass and top it with the slushie.

Uh oh, it's all gone!!

  11. @ Anonymous: Matcha is in general pretty expensive but the upside is that it is super concentrated, so a small package should last you a while. I get mine from a local Japanese grocery store but I'm sure you could find a better deal online!

  12. Matcha is very pretty helpful when it comes to lose weight but the challenge is the awful taste but your suggestion of brewing it is helpful. Thank you.
