Matcha Coconut Teashake

Introduction

You can make this super-simple teashake with any ice cream you fancy, but our favorite flavors are coconut, vanilla, or ginger. The coconut flakes on top make this even yummier. For the ultimate drink, use white chocolate sprinkles.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup (100 milliliters) skim milk
  • 2 to 3 scoops of good-quality coconut ice cream
  • 1 teaspoon matcha powder

  • Coconut flakes (optional)

Directions

1. Put the milk and ice cream in a blender and blend together.

2. Add the matcha powder and blend again.

3. Depending on how thick you like it, add more coconut milk and blend again until you reach the desired thickness.
