Hello…. frosty glass of deliciousness! I wish I could just reach right through the screen and hand this to you. I’d love for you to meet and fall in love with my latest crush. Frozen Matcha Green Tea Slushies – a 3 ingredient afternoon pick-me-up that is soooooo refreshing and energizing, you may skip your nap! Whether you are spending time outside in the hot sun, or getting sleepy at your desk, these guys are sure to revive you! Matcha green tea powder is blended with almond milk, a little sweetener and ice, and there you have it, a simple, delicious, refreshing, ice cold slushy that will energize and uplift you during the hot afternoon hours. I especially love these after hiking or biking in extreme heat- sooooooooo very restorative.
In case you are new to matcha green tea powder, here are a few of it’s amazing health benefits:
- Lowers cholesterol
- Lowers blood sugar levels
- Packed with antioxidants!
- Boosts metabolism and burns calories
- Detoxifies the liver and kidneys
- Calms the mind and relaxes the body
- Rich in chlorophyll and vitamins
- Aids in concentration
- High in vitamin C, selenium, chromium, zinc and magnesium
But don’t take my word for it, just see for yourself how it makes your body feel
If you are worried the about caffeine intake, remember you can always start off conservatively. I only use a teaspoon in the slushie, (which is equivalent to half a cup of coffee) but you could start with half a teaspoon.
I find that the little bit of caffeine, helps me focus and concentrate and get through the afternoon slump.
If you are interested in more matcha recipes, here is a delicious Smoothie Recipe that is really tasty and is especially handy if wanting to take a break from coffee. Drink it in the mornings.
And if you’ve been here a while, you’ll know I’m a huge fan of slushies in general- because they offer up a low-calorie alternative to ice cream!
Here are a couple of my other favorite slushy recipes …. Strawberry Slushy and Blueberry Slushie!
Happy summer friends, keep cool and hydrated!

Cool and refreshing, Frozen Matcha Green Tea Slushies are just what the doctor ordered on these hot summer days! Made with Almond Milk, these vegan, blended, Iced Green Tea Lattes, are healthy, Low-carb, Low-calorie!
- 3/4 cup almond milk ( I use unsweetened, vanilla flavored)
- 1 teaspoon matcha green tea powder ( or start with less if you like)
- 2–3 teaspoons honey, agave or other sweetener
- 2 cups ice ( 6-8 ice cubes)
Place almond milk, honey and matcha powder in a blender and blend. Add ice and blend again, adding more ice to desired thickness. I like this thick enough to stay on a spoon. Enjoy!
If using plain almond milk, a tiny splash of vanilla is nice. 🙂

I ended up using regular milk (lactose free). I also doubled matcha. It was good, but I felt it was a little underwhelming. I am tempted to throw in a banana and dates and reduce the amount of agave, although it would be a different smoothie at this point 🙂 The other ingredients I’d love to add are cardamom and cinnamon.
I think those spices would be fun to experiment with!
I also like it with maple syrup and a splash of vanilla!😋
Just discovered your website and it looks great! Re: Frozen Blended Matcha Green Tea Slushie. Will this also work with coconut milk (not canned)?
It should! I don’t see why not?
How can this have that many calories!? I put it in a nutrition calculator and got 35.5 calories..
Sorry about that, you are right there was an error! Fixed it.
This is so refreshing and tasty! I make this regularly now and love it in the summer. Healthy too.
