Green tea is a mild tea that has far less caffeine than regular tea or coffee. So if you are sensitive to caffeine you may enjoy this green tea frappuccino. For this reason, it is a very popular choice for Starbucks patrons. It combines the cream base of a classic Frappuccino with the yummy flavoring of green tea.

You may be wondering where the green coloring in the Frappuccino comes from since the tea is a mellow green color. The answer is matcha! Which is a finely ground powder used specifically for green tea. You can normally find matcha in the healthy living section of your local grocery store.

If you can’t find matcha at your grocery store, I have seen it available at Costco. Matcha can be a little pricey you so may want to enjoy it in other recipes.

You may want to try making your own Matcha Ice Cream. Or you may enjoy your homemade matcha latte. Matcha is good to drink on its own.

The green tea frappuccino is always a popular choice at Starbucks due to its low caffeine content, fun green coloring, and exotic taste. It may take a sip or two to get used to the flavor but I bet its creamy goodness may make it your new favorite drink!

So this may be the perfect treat if you want a treat that is lighter in caffeine. If you don’t want any caffeine you can always enjoy the Starbucks Strawberries and Cream Frappuccino.

    Call me crazy but I have never had a taste of anything when drinking green tea??? What am I missing. I only drink it for health purposes but mine has zero taste!

    This is my favorite Starbucks product , I have been drinking these for three years , and have spent a ton of money on them , I will try your recipe in comparison to the green tea frappes I make at home , very similar recipe except I use milk instead of ice cream , so I will for sure have to try this instead , just have to make a note to buy the ice cream , thanks , I look forward to trying this …

    If you’re sensitive to caffeine you should be cautious with matcha powder. The caffeine content in matcha powder is higher than steeped green tea.

    Would you consider doing on on Starbucks’s limited edition Cherry Blossom Frappe? It’s super good, and only available till this coming sunday. (3-20-16).

    I always see this drink at Starbucks and wonder how it tastes, but not enough to pay $5 to try it! Now I need to try it at home and see what I think. Looks delicious. – Katy
