Smooth & Creamy Matcha Milkshake

This rich and creamy matcha milkshake is like a healthy frappuccino! Made with coconut milk and matcha, it’s creamy and perfectly sweet. It’s so easy to make with a standard blender or immersion blender and only takes a few minutes from start to finish.

I have been on such a matcha kick lately! I’ve been experimenting with matcha with all kinds of things from matcha snickerdoodles to matcha ice cream. This matcha milkshake with no ice cream is the perfect afternoon snack that will give you a caffeine boost but won’t bog you down if you are sensitive to dairy. I love the subtle sweetness and tropical notes the coconut milk lends to the slight bitterness of the matcha.

Step 1: Gather Ingredients and Supplies

For this recipe you’ll need coconut milk, matcha powder, a sweetener like honey or maple syrup and ice. You’ll also need a blender to whiz everything together. A sifter or strainer is nice to sift a bit of matcha powder on at the end for a garnish.

Matcha Milkshake Tips & Tricks

Is a matcha milkshake healthy?

Green tea is good for you, but be mindful of the fat content of the coconut milk. Using a light version of canned coconut milk can cut the fat calories in half.

Does a matcha milkshake have caffeine?

Because matcha comes from green tea and green tea has caffeine, this milkshake also has caffeine.

Can I substitute milk for the coconut milk?

If you don’t have coconut milk, you can substitute dairy milk or a plant-based milk. It won’t be as creamy as the milkshake made with coconut milk, but will still be delicious.

What kind of matcha should I use for this recipe?

I always use a good quality culinary grade matcha powder for any recipes I make. There’s no need to spend the extra money for the pricier ceremonial grade matcha. I like this brand that I buy online. As long as you’re using a good quality matcha, you’ll be happy with the tasty results.
