Homemade Starbucks Green Tea Frappuccino Recipe

I admit, I love my Starbucks runs. Yet, I’m mostly about the plain, boring coffee and the food (case in point, cream cheese-stuffed bagel bites). The plain, boring coffee part is primarily about my resistance to the pricey, sugar-filled drinks disguised as happiness in a plastic cup.

The green tea Frappuccino alone is filled with vanilla syrup, classic syrup, and the signature Starbucks Frappuccino syrup. Egads! So much syrup on top of syrup on top of syrup for all your dollars, you might forget green tea is actually really, really good for you.

This homemade Starbucks green tea frappuccino is not sugar-free, but you can control the sugar you add. Simply add only one tablespoon instead of the two. Or, replace the sugar with any of your preferred sweeteners, such as honey or agave syrup.

And the whipped cream on top? That’s mostly decorative, right? You can omit that, too, of course.

Let’s get back to the green tea thing and why this is the best concoction ever. The caffeine in green tea serves as a morning pick-me-up, but it also has anti-oxidants and nutrients.

Matcha green tea powder, which I found in the tea aisle of the supermarket, can be expensive. But there are a range of options, and one tin can make many Frappuccinos.

I tried a few different combinations to come up with the perfect ratio of green tea flavor, creaminess, and a hint of vanilla and sweetness. And this is it. No one flavor overpowers the others. They complement each other beautifully. Ohmygoodness, so good. You can add more or less sugar depending on your taste. And, use any kind of milk you like: Soy, almond, cow’s milk, skim, full fat. If you omit the whipped cream on top and use alternative milk, your Frappuccino is vegan.

This Frappuccino is so delicious, I think it just surpassed my unicorn smoothie as my favorite new drink.
