Coconut blender matcha. Blender coconut matcha. It took me way too long to decide what to name this recipe.

Also, do the photos even look good? There are so many decisions and uncertainties that come from writing a blog post, but in the end, I decide what to share. And you know what? I kind of like this first photo. Even if Shaun says it looks weird.

Yes, there are little specs of matcha on there and a failed white creamy swirl. But it’s good. So, so good.

I didn’t use to enjoy matcha, but this drink changed it all. Since creating this recipe, I’ve been having a cup of matcha almost every single morning. It’s creamy, perfectly sweetened with one date and ready in 5 minutes. The sweet taste of coconut blends wonderfully with the matcha and a touch of vanilla.

This is yet another one of my beloved blender drinks and it’s a good one. Simply blend warm water in a blender, along with one date (or other sweetener of choice), canned coconut milk and vanilla. The result? A frothy, rich and creamy drink – No whisking and no bits of matcha included. If like me, you don’t own a matcha whisk, this recipe is for you. Trust me, blending matcha in a blender is a game changer.

This is my way of celebrating Saint Patty’s Day: Drinking all the healthy green drinks. I invite you to do the same.

Prep Time 5 minutes
Total Time 5 minutes
Servings 1


  • 1 teaspoon matcha
  • 1 large Medjool date, pitted
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup light canned coconut milk
  • 1 1/2 cup warm water


  • Warm your water in a kettle.
  • Add all the ingredients in a high-speed blender, including the hot water. Blend for 30 seconds or until smooth and frothy.


There’s no need to heat the coconut milk, this drink will still be warm. If you want it warmer, feel free to take that extra step.
I used low-fat canned coconut milk and found it perfect in this recipe. I haven’t tried full-fat (it might be a little too rich to my taste) or fat-free carton coconut milk. If you try it, let me know how it turns out!
If your blender is too weak to blend dates, you can use a liquid sweetener to taste instead.

    Hi! Hmm, I’m thinking of doing this, but as an alternative, do you think soy/ almond milk will work too? I’ve been wanting to try matcha drinks with date as sweetener!

    • Unsweetened Caroline

      Hi! I’ve made it with unsweetened soy and almond milk and both are good! I prefer almond milk though as soy milk foams a little too much (if that’s even a thing). I hope you’ll love it too!
