I enjoy simple things: solitude, cheap sheet cake, and sunlight. I also believe that white is, in fact, a color. Bring me fresh flowers and we can be friends.

Green Tea Frappuccino

Mornings are getting particularly warm and rather than my cup of tea, I sometimes crave something cold and creamy.  I had left over green tea packets from my green tea cake experiment, and as I was looking through the pantry the box reminded me of the delicious Green Tea Frappuccino at Starbucks.

I would definitely prefer to use powdered matcha for this (as well as the cake) but I couldn't bring myself to spend the $33 on the mini tin at Whole Foods, so I had opted for the $9.99 Rishi Green Oolong Tea to-go packets.

I blended soy milk, ice, and a packet in the blender and added a little bit of stevia powder to add some sweetness. The result was extremely satisfying and refreshing first thing in the morning.

The only thing missing - whipped cream.

There's always next time.
