This pineapple green tea slushie is almost like a pineapple and orange smoothie, with a hint of matcha to cut through all the sweetness and tang from the fruit.

Recipe Notes

From The Pig & Quill.

If you're new to matcha or don't like strong tea, I'd recommend cutting down the amount of matcha to 1 1/2 T or 2 T.

Haven't tried this, but it could be interesting to use frozen orange chunks instead of pineapple! Let me know how it goes if you try that.
