Making your own Green Tea Frappe

For years, I have been addicted to Starbucks Green Tea Frappuccino. Aside that I am not much of a coffee lover, I have a liking to anything green tea. May it be hot green tea, green tea ice cream and green tea frappe. I have been planning to make my own green tea frappe like the one in Starbucks but had difficulty in finding the green tea in powder form.

Finally, I saw this green tea powder. It is quite expensive though but I think it was worth it.

I searched for Starbucks green tea frappuccino┬árecipe and here’s what I got.

I paired the green tea frappe with homemade spicy beef pizza.

I had leftover green tea powder from the green tea frappe  so I made green tea mini cakes as well.

Instant Cappuccino

 

While walking in the aisle of the coffee lane in a supermarket, my attention zeroed in an instant cappuccino. I am not a coffee addict but I do like a good coffee. The packaging is not that attractive since it does not scream “pick me” among the other coffee brands. But having an instant cappuccino is enough for me to grab one. So I bought one pack and tried it at home. It has the same directions as any instant coffee – pour the cappuccino mix in a hot water. Make sure to follow the directions to get the intended output. ┬á(150 ml and stir gently to get the foamy part). The extra choco granules is a plus too. After drinking the whole cup, I can say it is mediocre for those who wants their coffee strong but for someone like me that likes their coffee more on the creamy side it will do for an instant cappuccino fix.
