Weed-Infused Mint Matcha Milkshake
There’s never a bad time to enjoy a mint milkshake. It’s especially fitting for the greenest day of the year!
We love this mint-matcha milkshake because it combines refreshing mint flavors with soothing notes of green tea. When you stir a little bit of cannabis in, it reaches the next level.
It’s also super easy to make and extremely versatile. You just need a few ingredients and a blender and you’re ready to get your green on! We’ve adapted our recipe from this Better Homes & Gardens recipe and will also give you tips on how to customize your green milkshake to your liking.
Here’s what you need to make two servings:
- 1/2 cup of almond, soy, or dairy milk
- 1 tbsp matcha powder
- 1 pint of softened regular or non-dairy mint chocolate chip ice cream
- Cannabis tincture
- Optional: Whipped cream and extra matcha powder for topping
Just add all of these ingredients to a blender and go! Serve in a chilled glass. For the best appearance, add some whipped cream to the top and sprinkle with matcha powder.
You can use as much or little of cannabis tincture as you’d like. If you are new to edibles or infused beverages, keep in mind that it takes a little while for effects to take place. Don’t dump a bunch of cannabis tincture in the blender if you don’t thoroughly understand your body’s tolerance.
There are plenty of cannabis tinctures available at all of our Washington dispensary locations, from our Spokane pot shop all the way to our Bellingham weed store. You can use any flavor, though we recommend a mint or chocolate flavored tincture for the best flavor match. With the ice cream and other ingredients, you likely won’t taste the tincture much at all.
Not a fan of matcha? You can cut the matcha from the recipe and add a drop of green food coloring to stay consistent with the theme. Trust us, it will still taste delicious.
If you don’t have mint ice cream, you can use vanilla ice cream and drop some peppermint extract into the blender to keep it minty.
Another option is to cut the mint altogether and just go with matcha for a tasty green shake. It will certainly change the direction of your special treat, but delicious flavor is still a guarantee.
Alternative Way to Make a Weed Mint Matcha Cannabis Infused Shake
You may have noticed we’ve covered how to make weed milkshakes before, so naturally we have several ideas. If you don’t want to go the tincture route, you can actually make a Mint Matcha milkshake with weed using infused milk.
This is a much larger process, but many find it worth the work. This is especially true if you have use for extra infused milk.
