So I know some of you are thinking…uh didn’t you say you were going to resume reviewing Rational Creatures?
You are all 100% right. However, this weekend I left the hot three digit heat to visit my friend in cool, comfortable degree weather-San Jose.
I was hoping to have the next installment of Rational Creatures ready but it’s isn’t and I don’t want to post a lackluster review for a book that I have been enjoying. So instead I thought I would pause and share a yummy tea recipe that will help you beat this summer (it’s not fall in California until October) heat.
This recipe comes from my sister blog, MysteriousEats, and is a way to make a homemade Green Tea Frappuccino which stars one of my favorite teas:
So I mentioned in Matcha, Matcha, Matcha that my niece and I would go on these faux-around the world trips. One day she wanted to go to Japan so I planned a trip around town and then we ended the day with the tea ceremony. As I had leftover Matcha and I love the Starbucks Green Tea Frappuccino-it was a no brainer to use my sister blog’s recipe and make my own.
- 1 Cup of Ice Cubes (Less than 10)
- 1 Scoop of Vanilla Ice Cream
- 1 Cup of Milk
- 1 Tablespoon + 1 Teaspoon of Sugar
- 2 Teaspoons of Matcha Green Tea Powder
- 1/8 Teaspoon of Vanilla or Vanilla Extract
- Xanthan Gum (Optional)
- Whipped Cream (Optional)
- Add all the ingredients in a blender.
- Pulse and blend on high until thorough.
- Add whipped cream if you want.
It’s absolutely delicious!
