Matcha is all the rage right now. From hipsters to housewives, everyone is in love with the earthy green tea that starts as baby green tea leaves ground into a fine powder.
It is no surprise that Starbucks carries the matcha. You can get it in a latte, in a frappuccino, or added to numerous other drinks.
But, I just happened to make a Strawberry Matcha drink that is now a part of the Starbucks Secret Menu, and you are going to love it!
It starts with Strawberry Puree in the bottom of a cup. To that you add a Pink Drink — Strawberry Açaí Refresher, with coconut milk, and strawberry inclusions.
Then you top it with vanilla cold foam with a scoop of matcha added. This creamy, frothy treat is the perfect topping to this sweet drink.
Then you finish it off with Strawberry Inclusions on top. Those are the tasty freeze-dried strawberries, and they just happen to be my favorite part! It’s colorful and yummy!!
The Strawberry Matcha Drink is the perfect refreshing beverage for a hot day — or a cold day — or any day in between.
I like a lot of the drinks on the Starbucks Secret Menu, but this one is so tasty! It isn’t too terribly sweet, it packs a yummy strawberry punch, and it’s finished off with that earthy vanilla matcha flavor. It’s perfection in a cup.
You have GOT to try it for yourself. But, don’t just walk into Starbucks, ask for a Strawberry Matcha Drink, and expect the barista to know what the heck you’re talking about. You have to let them know the recipe, but they will be happy to make this FABULOUS drink, once they know what all is involved.
