Love me some Starbucks – right? Wallet and waistline don’t always agree though. Did you know that those super yummy sugar filled fraps can have up to 60 g of sugar and 500-600 calories for a venti size? Yes, you can go with the lower fat milk options and sugar free syrups – but these syrups are full of chemicals that aren’t super good for you. I was needing an afternoon pick me up and wanted to avoid coffee. I am currenly restricting my sugar and refined carb intake and so my Keto friendly matcha frappuccino was born!
Three benefits: low sugar, easy to make, damn tasty! The third one is most important.
wait a sec, before I keep typing… I gotta go make one of these babies.
Ok, I’m Back.
That literally took a minute.
My new invention the keto friendly matcha frappuccino needs three ingredients and can be shaken or stirred – if I was at home (right now at the clinic) I would use a blender for this – I need to shop for more ingredients for the home kitchen this week – I cant wait to add ice to the blender too… I haven’t even tried that yet! Ok, ok here is the ingredient’s list:
Here is what you need for the Keto friendly matcha frappuccino:
Matcha powder (about 1/2 tsp)
unsweetened coconut milk (around 1.5 c)
3-5 drops of chocolate flavoured steiva
the directions are too easy for it’s own section – just mix. I find it is easier to shake because it is sometimes hard to get the matcha to dissolve.
I have also figured out that it is good even without the Stevia but it does taste more frap-like with it…. I can’t wait to make this into a frozen concoction this weekend. So good and guilt free coming in at about 75 calories and 1 g of carbohydrates.
Know what is weird?
I have been to many a Starbucks and I have asked several time if they have unsweetened coconut milk – answer is always no so I can never get a low carb friendly drink… Now that I have figured this one out they may not see me often at Starbucks…. HEY STARBUCKS PLEASE STOCK UNSWEETENED COCONUT OR OTHER NUT MILKS!!! I AM TRYING TO GIVE YOU MY MONEY!!!
