Hello there Martians! Oh wait, you’re not Martians? But you look all green and like… ohhhh you’ve just been eating lots and lots of matcha. I get it.
It is Matcha Madness month afterall!
So we’re now officially half way through our crazy Matcha-do-about-everything month (damn, why didn’t I come up with the earlier?) and things are getting hot in here. We’ve already had a number of submissions and I’m still waiting for a bunch more to hit my inbox because green, my dear, is the new black.
Since everyone’s doing so well with their matcha recipes, I thought I’d better pull my socks up too and squeeze out another of my own.
Back in Sydney, I used to slurp my way through one or two or sometimes more Starbucks matcha frappucinos every single week. I loved it more than anything because honestly? It’s the next best thing to having matcha IV’d straight into my arm. But since leaving the sunny shores of Sydney, I have been more than a little matcha frappé deprived and despite one quick hit in Hong Kong…
… I haven’t had a good matcha frappé in a Very Long Time. I can’t believe it took me this long to do this but hey, better late than never. In the midst of our little summer last week, I decided to take matters into my own little hands and whip me up some matcha frappés!
Refreshing and (if you ignore the condensed milk and cream), utterly good for you!
So, what other ideas have been popping up in my inbox for our Matcha Madness competition? How’s about a little sneak peek?
