Matcha Madness Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 1)
Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2012
I love that this recipe is so healthy! (I made mine even healthier by using unsweetened almond milk.) I was also attracted to this recipe because it doesn't require any ice cream/froyo, which I didn't have on hand. That being said.... the lack of frozen ingredients makes this shake pretty liquidy and flat - even if you use 6 ice cubes like I did. It's fine as a beverage, but nothing like the milkshake consistency I was hoping for. If you want a green tea milkshake/smoothie rather than a green tea drink, I think you do need to use ice cream or froyo. Alternatively, maybe you could make this drink, put it in an ice cube tray, and then blend the frozen cubes? I might try that next time. Also, I'd recommend adding some sweetener (not much - I just used 2 tsp agave nectar) to this recipe, unless you used sweetened milk of some kind.
