Today we got the first glimpses of summer, aka the high 70s and humid. We do a lot of home improvement stuff on weekends, so we’re always working up a sweat. I craved something sweet but didn’t want to bake anything and further heat up our house … milkshake it is!
I love, love, love homemade milkshakes because I am uber picky about the consistency. Making it at home guarantees that I’ll drink something that I really enjoy. Today, I whipped up some matcha milkshakes for Ian and myself after a long day of doing electrical work.
- 2 Tb matcha powder
- 1 cup whole milk
- 1 1/2 cup vanilla ice cream
- 1 tsp honey
- Place all ingredients in a blender. Blend until smooth. Serve immediately.
- How much milk and ice cream you use will really depend on how hard your ice cream is and what the consistency you’d like the finished product to be. My ice cream was hard with little air bubbles, so my milkshake consistency was a thick, smoothie-like texture. If you like it thinner or thicker, just add either milk or ice cream until you reach desired consistency.
