Not only healthy, green tea packs a mellow-flavored caffeine punch like no other.
No need to purchase expensive, loose green tea to make this Starbucks knock off: just use the green tea in the cupboard, and before you can say Bob’s your father’s brother, you’re into a green frothy glass of happiness.
Tip: If you don’t keep Davincis in the house, try using Stevia Sweetleaf liquid vanilla drops instead.
Green Tea Tazo Frappuccino
1/2 cup warm water
1 green tea bag
1/4 cup heavy cream
1 packet sweetener
1 Tbsp Davincis sugar free vanilla syrup, or 2 drops Stevia Sweetleaf vanilla liquid drops
1-1/2 cups crushed ice
Combine powdered sweetener, tea and water. Let steep for 5 minutes. Squeeze excess tea bag into water after removing to get the most of the green tea kick and color.
Crush ice in blender (or, better yet, use the crush setting on the ice maker). Combine all ingredients in blender and mix until frothy. If the color isn’t as green as you’d like (think Starbucks), add 1 drop green food coloring and mix.
Top with whipping cream and chocolate syrup if desired (recipes follow).
Makes 1, approx 12 ounce frozen frappuccino.
