I love vegan milkshakes! You may already be familiar with my Chocolate Strawberry Milkshake or Best Ever Vegan Chocolate Milkshake which are creamy and delicious.

We all hear about how good matcha is for you. Adding a little to smoothies and shakes is an easy way to incorporate its health benefits into your diet.

You can find #matcha in just about anything these days. It has become a trend that I hope is here to stay!

I thought I would give it a try in a non-dairy milkshake. And just as I thought, it turned out perfect and will be a new summer staple!

Benefits of matcha

Of all the teas, green teas are the least processed and hold the most anti-oxidants. Matcha (meaning ‘powdered tea’) is finely ground green tea leaves. It holds the most benefits over other green teas due to the processing and ingestion of the whole tea leaf.

Green tea is high in antioxidants called polyphenols, which act to protect against cancer and help to slow the effects of aging. You can also use it for an energy boost and to aid in weight loss.

Matcha Milkshake Ingredients

  • Matcha – The flavor of matcha conjures up notes of grassiness with a lovely umami character and pairs perfectly with coconut milk.
  • Coconut milk – Use drinking coconut milk found with other kinds of milk. We recommend unsweetened.
  • Banana – Use one frozen banana to add bulk and creaminess. If using an unfrozen banana, add a few ice cubes.
  • Sweetener – Add a date or drizzle of maple syrup before blending.
  • Toppings – Top off your shake with toasted coconut flakes and dark chocolate shaving and it’s a delicious treat any time of day!

How To Make Matcha Milkshake

Gather your ingredients, add them to your blender, and blend until creamy.

Sip away to a blissful state of green! 💚

  1. Could you also use brewed green tea, if you don’t have matcha?

      Sorry for the delayed response. The matcha works best because it’s a powder that gets mixed in with everything. I suppose you could use brewed tea and add a little milk. I’d stick with matcha, but if you do give it a try I’d love to know how it went! :)
