Green Tea Frappe

So, this is the third recipe I made yesterday. I decided to post it today so I didn't bombard you all with food recipes. I decided to make this because I had all the ingredients except milk and sugar but I was already planning on buying sugar! I found this recipe on Pinterest and the original link can be found here!

What you need:
  • 5 green tea bags
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 1/2 cup of water
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup crushed ice
  • 1/2 cup milk
Directions:
  1. Heat sugar and water in a small sauce pan, stirring often.
  2. Bring to a boil and add vanilla. Let boil for about 30 seconds, and remove from heat.
  3. Immediately add in 3 green tea bags, and let tea bags steep in syrup until syrup has cooled completely; remove tea bags.
  4. Brew a cup of green tea. I used the other two tea bags to make it extra strong like the recipe I read. Let tea cool completely. I put it in a window so the breeze would cool it.
  5. Crush ice in a blender until it is fine enough to be consumed with a straw.*
  6. Fill a cup with crushed ice. Pour 1/2 cup of green tea, 1/2 cup milk, and 1/4 cup green tea syrup; stir. Adjust to your liking*
  7. Enjoy!
*It turned out pretty watery, but it still tasted good. I experimented a bit on the second batch and just put everything right in with the ice and blended it all together. It turned out better but I think the syrup and tea should be refrigerated so it doesn't melt the ice so fast.
