Mmm. Mmm. Mmm... On my quest to find GTFs, or Green Tea Frappucinos, it started several years ago when Starbucks introduced it's version of liquid crack. I was hooked along with my wife and many of my friends. Ahh.. Bubble Tea one night, GTFs another night. Watch my ass get larger and larger! Suffice to say that my quest has brought me to the ultimate goal. Making my own GTF Crack-like liquid gold. Yup.. you heard me right, make yer own GTFs. Now the key to this is getting good quality Matcha poweder, not to be confused with the columbian type. It's Green Tea Powder grown in China or Japan. I found a great little place thanks to another fellow blogger in Edmonton. Nicely organic, and Grade 1. Whatever the fuck that means. All you need to know is that it's good, green and has the requisite taste. ok.. that's not Kermit's finger, or any inappropriate muppet joke.... Well.. On to the recipe!
Ol Skool GTF 1 teaspoon of Matcha powder 3 teaspoons of sugar. This can be substituted with part honey. 4 ozs. of warm Milk 14 ozs. of ice
Stir Matcha in warm milk until dissolved. Place ice and mix in Blender for 20 seconds, or until all ice chunks are blended well.. smoothly! you can optionally top with whip cream and sprinkle with Matcha or cocoa powder.
For the New Version that is currently being made, substitute the sugar with 1 oz of Melon Syrup. Optionally, for a creamy Matcha Latte or Smoothie - substitute sugar and ice with vanilla ice cream.
