How to Make Starbucks's Deliciously Refreshing Iced Pineapple Matcha Latte at Home

Iced pineapple matcha latte

When it comes to fun and delicious drinks, Starbucks is the place to be. The coffeehouse chain is known for their creative concoctions, from the dragonfruit refresher to the birthday cake Frappucino. One of their newer drinks is the iced pineapple matcha drink, a shaken green tea featuring coconut milk and pineapple ginger syrup. However, if you're on a budget (or simply don't feel like leaving the house), you'll be glad to know that it's easy to re-create at home.

This copycat recipe calls for real pineapple juice and fresh ginger instead of a syrup. These ingredients are blended with coconut milk and matcha powder, resulting in a tasty beverage that replicates the flavors of the Starbucks drink. The best part? As with all copycat Starbucks recipes, you can adjust the ingredients to your liking to create your own perfect beverage.

Read on to learn how to make iced pineapple matcha drink at home, plus tips and variations. Cheers!

Notes

To avoid a watery latte, use frozen pineapple chunks instead of ice cubes. You can even make a batch, then freeze it into ice cubes for future lattes. Also, if you don't have fresh ginger, a pinch or two of ground ginger works great.
