Mint Matcha Milk Shake


This mint-chip milkshake recipe is great all year, but come St. Patrick's Day time, we definitely break out our shamrock cookie cutter to make that cute garnish on top.

Total Time:
10 mins
1 3/4 cups


  • ½ cup milk or almond milk

  • 1 tablespoon matcha powder

  • 1 pint mint-chocolate chip ice cream, slightly softened

  • 3 tablespoon chopped fresh mint

  • Whipped cream

  • Matcha powder


  1. Whisk together 1 tablespoon matcha powder and 1/2 cup milk or almond milk until no lumps remain.

  2. In a blender combine matcha mixture, 1 pint slightly softened mint-chocolate chip ice cream, and 3 tablespoons choped fresh mint; cover and blend until combined. Top with whipped cream and, if desired, dust with additional matcha powder.


For a shamrock on top, lightly place a 1 3/4-inch shamrock-shaped cookie cutter on top of the whipped cream. Lightly sift matcha powder inside the cutter. Gently lift cutter away.
