Cookie Covered Matcha Tea Recipe

Taking a very familiar dessert flavor and combining it with a less common flavor of Matcha. This is a fun twist for a whole new blended beverage experience.

Talking to Levi Andersen, the Beverage Product Specialist for Kerry (DaVinci Gourmet, Big Train, Oregon Chai brands), had this to say about the genesis of the beverage recipe:

“Lately I’ve been playing around with matcha tea, its a whole new ingredient to me. As I was playing with matcha I found that the deep and more bitter flavors of matcha go very well with sweeter beverages such as this Cookies n Creme base. Together they create a balance.”

Cookie Covered Matcha Tea

2 scoops (8 tbsp) Big Train Cookies ‘N Crème

1 tbsp matcha green tea

5 oz milk

12 oz ice

Blend

 

You can top it with crushed up cookies. Notice these cookies were smashed together with the creme filling still inside. Doing it this way helps the chunks to remain rather larger and clump together. If you don’t like the way that looks then remove the filling before crushing the cookies. You may even want to use crushed cookies (without the filling) and add in white sugar to achieve a great black and white balance.
