It’s March and the Shamrock Shakes are out and if you are sitting at a Starbucks you will probably see more than the usual Matcha Frappuccino being sipped. The one month where it is even cooler to be sipping on a green drink. Green drinks, usually green smoothies or green juices, seem to be a constant in our house. Being a Matcha fan, love a Matcha Latte made with homemade vanilla almond milk sprinkled with cinnamon, I decide to make a healthier and tastier version of a Matcha Frappuccino, a Matcha Milkshake if you will. Thick, rich, and topped with a big scoop or two of Coco Whip, Coconut Whipped Cream! If making this for a dessert or treat I highly recommend making it with vanilla coconut milk ice cream, or vanilla ice cream of choice. If making it for breakfast or looking for a whole food option it is also delicious and can be made with frozen banana or avocado!
