What you'll need for your matcha frappe recipe
There are two main components to this recipe, so we'll need to prepare the ingredients separately, and then properly combine everything at the end. Everything about this is easy, delicious, and simple, it could become a summer staple! You can even choose to blend everything in a solo-sized blender, and then just manually whip out the cream. Its creamy and fluffy goodness will definitely leave you drooling for more.

1 cup ice
1/2 cup whole milk
1/2 cup heavy cream
2 tsbp condensed milk
2 tsp matcha kari powder
Matcha Whipped Cream Ingredients:
2 tbsp condensed milk
2 tsp matcha
1/2 cup heavy cream
Here's how to make this simple yet delightful recipe at home:
1. To make the whipped cream, combine condensed milk with sifted matcha powder. Add heavy cream, then beat on high speed for 1 minute. Chill in the freezer for 5 minutes.
2. Take out the chilled whipped cream mixture and beat on high speed until it forms stiff peaks. Transfer into a piping bag with a star tip, and set aside.
3. Add in all the ingredients for the matcha frappe base into a blender. Blend until there are no more visible matcha clumps. Transfer into a cup, and top it off with the whipped cream. You can also choose to forego the piping bag, and simply dump dollops of whipped cream for an easier eat.
4. Sit back, and relax under the summer sun, and enjoy sipping on this summer treat!
