Copycat Starbucks Matcha Frappuccino Recipe

This green tea frappe is another one of my copycat recipes. It’s new on my must-make list and maybe will soon be on yours too. Very soon.

I had seen and heard about matcha tea for a while now. It’s all over the internet and in the grocery stores, but I had never even thought about giving it a try in a green tea frappe.

It didn’t cross my mind to try the green drink at Starbucks, and guess I forgot about it or just didn’t pay any attention when matcha was mentioned, either on the internet or anyplace else for that matter, until, recently when I was walking into a Starbucks at the mall and saw a girl walk out with a green-looking drink.

We kind of passed each other and both of us were walking slowly. Her drink had a bright green color,  one I had never seen before at Starbucks. So, I asked her if she wouldn’t mind telling what she was drinking, she was more than happy to and said “It’s a Matcha Green Tea Frappe”—and then said “The Starbucks Matcha Frappuccino is amazing!” Before she walked off she smiled.

Since I was walking in a Starbucks, I was curious about what matcha tea was all about, and what it tasted like. And since Frappuccino is one of my favorite beverage forms, how could I not try a Starbucks matcha frappuccino? This was the perfect time to order one.

I ordered a Starbucks Matcha Frappuccino and oh yeah, it was amazing! Loved it.

Of course being a food blogger and making many copycat recipes, I knew I had to try this Starbucks green tea frappuccino recipe at home. Especially since it’s a small fortune to buy these yummy drinks on a regular basis. Why run out when you can easily make one of these luscious frappes at home in five minutes?

After just two tries, I figured out how to make a green tea frappuccino. I thought it tasted pretty darn close to the original but I couldn’t be sure. So, I brought in the experts. My two friends, the taste testers. They also thought it was so delicious. They had never had matcha before and both loved the taste of  this matcha frappe and gave me the two thumbs up. It was a go!

Give this Starbucks green tea frap a try for yourself. It’s really a delicious matcha frappe and a great morning beverage. Creamy delicious with a nice kick.
