Protein Matcha Frappuccino (No Refined Sugar)

As crazy as this sounds, this recipe idea actually came to me in a dream.

I attempted to re-create what I saw in my dream—and boy! This is the up-leveled version of a Starbucks matcha frappuccino, and I am addicted to their frappuccinos. Honestly, though, I can't imagine how much sugar their drinks contain.

My dream-inspired creation tastes amazing, and I can feel good about what I'm putting in my body, as there are no refined sugars. I've been making this for breakfast every day for the past two weeks, and I have to say, I think I am obsessed.

If you've read my previous articles, you'd know that I've been trying to reduce the amount of caffeine I drink every day. Matcha green tea still contains caffeine, but it's probably about three times less the amount of coffee. The amount in a shot of matcha tea is the perfect amount to give a little energy, without the crash a few hours later.

For this recipe I used unflavored hemp seed protein powder. I like this powder because it doesn't have much flavor, and it is filled with healthy omegas. If you desire, you could add a vanilla-flavored protein powder, I imagine that would be delicious as well!


  • 1 banana, frozen
  • handful of ice cubes
  • 1/2 to 1 cup plant-based milk, amount determines consistency
  • 1 shot cooled matcha tea
  • 1 teaspoon raw honey
  • 6 to 8 drops vanilla-flavored stevia
  • 1 scoop hemp seed protein powder


  1. Brew your matcha tea; then let it cool for a while before you make your shake. I generally let it sit for about 30 minutes.
  2. Once cooled, add your banana and ice to the blender. Follow with your choice of plant-based milk (start with less milk and then add more if you want a thinner consistency). Add the cooled matcha tea.
  3. Add the remaining ingredients and blend.
