Matcha Green Tea 'Frappuccino'

My hard working colleague has been in Asia this month and I'm jealous of all the yummy meals she's had. Aside from all the noodles and amazing food, one of my biggest addictions in Asia is a Green Tea Frappuccino from Starbucks ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’š... They must be SO full of sugar but they are such a brilliant drink and perfect for cooling down when whizzing between meetings. Starbucks, why don't you have them in Europe?! ๐Ÿ˜

So when she said she was having one, I was determined to make my own at home! It was nearly the same flavour and I don't have an ice crushing machine obviously... But it's as close as I'll get until October when I go back to China and to Korea for the first time. Have you tried these?
