A Starbucks Green Tea Frappuccino is one of my favorite drinks to order from the Starbucks menu.

Not that I don’t love my coffee, but the light and fresh taste of the green tea is a nice way to switch it up.

Shelley and I got one every day during our first BlogHer trip.

I never even thought to try to make my own. I didn’t have a clue how to!

Copycat Green Tea Matcha Frappuccino Recipe

After a bit of research, I found out that they use Matcha Green Tea to create the Starbucks Green Tea Frappuccino.

Soon after that, my friend Kayla from The Eclectic Element posted her Green Tea Matcha Pistachio Cookies recipe using the powder.

How serendipitous. I knew I had to order some and make my own copycat Starbucks Green Tea Frappuccino!

I purchased a pouch of Matcha Green Tea powder from Amazon.com.

It was a lot smaller of a bag than I anticipated, but turns out a little of the powder goes a long way.

With a little help of Google, I was well on my way to making a copycat version of one of my favorite drinks from Starbucks.

I found several recipes so I kind of worked off of all of them. I was super pleased with the end result.

Just as light and delicious as Starbucks! It’s not super sweet, but neither are the Starbucks ones, so it was perfect for me.

All you need are 4 or 5 simple ingredients:

  • Milk (or milk substitute of your choice – I used almond milk)
  • Ice

  • Matcha Green Tea Powder
  • Whipped cream for topping (totally optional – ditch it to keep the calories lower)

After I purchased my Matcha Powder from Kiss Me Organics through Amazon.com, they sent me a free recipe eBook along with it.

    Ooooh, yum!! I’ve never really done the Starbucks thing before, so I never considered doing a copycat of their recipe but it looks like it turned out perfectly! Plus your pictures are simply amazing ^.^

    Oh, and I’m DEFINITELY going to have to look into making popsicles with that Matcha powder! Fantastic idea ๐Ÿ˜€

    Thank you so much for including my recipe in your post!

  2. HOLY MOLY that looks delicious! And why didn’t you make me one of these the last time I was over?! o.O

    1. I hadn’t discovered their deliciousness yet. Next time.

  3. I have some Matcha in my fridge, but haven’t used it yet. The addition of the pudding would be what makes this so yummy.

  4. Robin (Masshole Mommy) says:

    Ooooh, I kind of love you right now. I love that I can make it at home now & it will probably save me a small fortune ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Yum! This sounds really refreshing, especially in popsicle format. I’ll have to try it.

  7. I have never tried the Starbucks Green Tea Frappuccino but it looks delicious, I would love to try it. Thank you for sharing this recipe.

  8. I haven’t tried this from Starbucks. I usually get Chai Tea.

  9. I am trying to remember what Matcha is. Do you know?

    1. It’s green tea in a powder. ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. This is a SUPER good idea. I am always looking for ways to make my drinks/food healthier. This would work great for our family. Thanks ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. nicole dz says:

    YUM! Starbucks is my go-to place for drinks like this, I would love to try to make it at home. Great copy-cat recipe! Gonna try this!

  12. ellen beck says:

    That looks good and best of all easy. I havent tried one, but I would give it a go. Put it in a mason jar and somehow it is even better!

  13. Thank you for breaking this down for your readers. I’m on the Lindora diet and vanilla pudding is one of their meal replacements they sell. Voilรก! I can replicate my go to Starbucks drink and satisfy the craving while not cheating the diet. I add a Stevia packet and Win Win!

  14. I tweaked the recipe some, since I didn’t have almond milk: 3/4 cup lowfat 2% milk, 3 Tbsp. French vanilla pudding, 1/2 tsp match a green tea powder, 3/4 cup ice, 1/8 tsp. Almond extract, whipped cream (optional; use as a topping).
    This seems to have the perfect mixture of thickness and richness! The almond extract is what gives it that rich taste.

    1. That sounds delicious!! Thanks for letting us know ๐Ÿ™‚

  15. Linda Marie says:

    I love the Starbucks green tea frap. I add raspberry to mine and it is to die for! You should try it, you will order one every time you go there. I need to find out what they use for the raspberry so I can make mine at home. Thanks for the recipe. Can’t wait to try it.

    1. That does sound good. I wonder if it sweetens it enough to add less sugar?

  16. I am amazed!! This actually worked! Thank you for sharing this, their green frapp has always been my favorite summer treat and I can save so much now!

    1. I’m so glad to hear that!!! It’s my favorite, too! Thanks for letting us know. ๐Ÿ™‚
