DIY Orange Green Tea Cheap-o-chino

Here’s another green tea variation, this time a little closer to you-know-who’s. The color of this one is a faint green, though it didn’t capture well in the photos. You could also throw in some Swiss Chard or Kale to get a darker (and healthier) green.

  • Prep Time


  • Total Time


  • Servings



  • cup So Delicious Vanilla Almond Plus Milk

  • 1

    teaspoon matcha powder

  • 1

    teaspoon orange extract

  • ¼

    teaspoon Nu-stevia or sweetener of your choice

  • pinch of xanthan gum or 1 teaspoon pectin (do not leave out – it holds it together!)

  • 2

    cups ice

  • orange zest for topping, optional


In a blender mix everything except for the xanthan gum and ice. Blend until smooth. Then add xanthan gum (or pectin), ice and blend. This will keep the different ingredients from separating. You can add more almond milk if it’s too thick or you can add more ice if it’s too thick.
