Coconut blender matcha. Blender coconut matcha. It took me way too long to decide what to name this recipe.
Also, do the photos even look good? There are so many decisions and uncertainties that come from writing a blog post, but in the end, I decide what to share. And you know what? I kind of like this first photo. Even if Shaun says it looks weird.
Yes, there are little specs of matcha on there and a failed white creamy swirl. But it’s good. So, so good.
I’m not one to drink matcha often (mostly because I have a hard time with caffeine), but this drink might change it all. It’s creamy, perfectly sweetened with one date and ready in 5 minutes. The sweet taste of coconut blends wonderfully with the matcha and a touch of vanilla.
This is yet another one of my beloved blender drinks and it’s a good one. Simply blend warm water in a blender, along with one date (or other sweetener of choice), canned coconut milk and vanilla. The result? A frothy, rich and creamy drink – No whisking and no bits of matcha included.
This is my way of celebrating Saint Patty’s Day: Drinking all the healthy green drinks. I invite you to do the same.

Blend matcha with warm water, coconut milk, vanilla and a date and you'll get the most delicious, creamy drink. This coconut blender matcha is perfectly sweet and will give you the little energy boost you need to get through a busy week. No coffee needed.
Warm your water in a kettle.
Add all the ingredients in a high-speed blender, including the hot water. Blend for 30 seconds or until smooth and frothy.
There's no need to heat the coconut milk, this drink will still be warm. If you want it warmer, feel free to take that extra step.
I used low-fat canned coconut milk and found it perfect in this recipe. I haven't tried full-fat (it might be a little too rich to my taste) or fat-free carton coconut milk. If you try it, let me know how it turns out!
If your blender is too weak to blend dates, you can use a liquid sweetener to taste instead.
