How many glasses of caffeinated drink do you consume a day? Mine is two, one early in the morning, and the second one around 4 o’clock in the afternoon. The first one is a no brainer, it has got to be coffee since my brain cannot function otherwise. Plus, it has been wired in my body to just wake up and brew a cup of coffee in the morning even while I am still in zombie mode. The afternoon one can be a bit more creative, it is when I experiment with crazy weird concoction of coffee or tea based drink, this matcha latte float is the result of one such experiment. ;)
If you like matcha ice cream, you will love this drink. If you like Starbucks green tea frappuccino, you are definitely going to like this drink. If you love tea in general, you are probably going to love this. And the ice cream, well, it is not exactly a must, so you can safely skip that if you are out of it, though I definitely love the version with ice cream better since I have a sweet tooth right around 4 o’clock! ♥
I use a blender to make this matcha latte float, though I believe you can also properly whisk up this drink with the traditional matcha bamboo whisk. When using the bamboo whisk, you may need to prepare the drink in a bowl (just like how matcha is traditionally prepared) instead of in a glass.
