Green Iced Drink for a Balmy Spring

Hello All!  We’ve been having such beautiful weather here on the West Coast of Canada that I wanted to give some sort of cold drink a try.  I found one and gave it a try today and it was so refreshing and yummy I wanted to share it with you.  It’s also packed with great nutrients so you don’t have to feel guilty about drinking it (like you might do with a similar drink from Starbucks).

Let me know if you try it out.  Happy Monday! 🙂

Gluten-Free, Oil-Free, Soy-Free, No Bake/Raw, Grain-Free, Vegan

Makes 1 serving

  • 2 almond milk ice cubes (60 mL), plus more for serving*
  • 1 cup (250 mL) unsweetened almond or coconut milk
  • 1 tsp Matcha green tea powder**
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla bean powder or 1 vanilla bean, seeded***
  • 2 tsp pure maple syrup, or to taste
  • 1 frozen wheatgrass cube (optional)****

Add all ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth and frothy.  Pour into a glass, add some almond milk ice cubes, and enjoy! 🙂

* remember to freeze your almond milk ice cubes ahead of time!
** matcha green tea powder can be a bit pricey, but you don’t use much at a time (max of 1 tsp) so it should last quite awhile.  I bought mine on Amazon.
*** in my experience, vanilla bean powder and vanilla beans are hard to come by (and vanilla beans are pricey).  Alternatively, you can substitute vanilla almond milk and/or a small amount of vanilla extract to taste.
**** I thought frozen wheatgrass cubes would be hard to find but I actually found them in the healthy frozen foods section at Save On Foods.  I believe you can also find them at Whole Foods.  They are a bit pricey, but just like the matcha green tea powder, you won’t be using these every day so they’ll last you awhile.  Plus, they’re packed with tons of nutrients (just google it)!
