  • Matcha Green Tea Latte

Healthy Matcha Frappuccino

Did you know a Matcha Frappucinno at Starbucks is over 400 calories and 65 grams of sugar!?  While matcha itself is super healthy, these blended sugary and high calorie beverages are not so much.  Here, I lighten-up and veganify (is that a word?) the popular matcha drink.
