Pineapple matcha ingredients

  • Full fat coconut milk– Since the coconut is full fat, you’ll want to blend the fat and coconut water in a blender first before using it.
  • Pineapple juice– A splash of pineapple juice adds that delicious tropical flava!
  • Matcha powder– You can find matcha powder in most well-stocked grocery stores in the tea aisle. If you can only find matcha tea bags, then brew them according to package instructions and allow it to cool.
  • Ginger– You can add a small slice of fresh ginger to give this drink a nice little tang.
  • Simple syrup– A splash of simple syrup will sweeten this drink up perfectly, although you can use healthier alternatives like monk fruit sweeter, maple syrup, or even raw sugar.

Chef’s tips

Make it icy

You can turn this drink into a delicious slushy! Add the ice to a blender and blend until the ice is very finely chopped. Pour the mixture over the ice, then stir and serve! The slushy can get a bit watered down, so I recommend adding an extra splash of pineapple juice to the mix.

Make it ahead of time

This Starbucks pineapple matcha drink can be made ahead of time and served later. Combine the coconut milk, pineapple juice, matcha powder, simple syrup, and ginger in a large cup, then shake. Store the drink mixture in the fridge until you are ready to serve. Pour the drink over ice, add a straw, and kick back and relax!

Health benefits of pineapple matcha

There are quite a few health benefits to this drink, which is just an added perk because it’s already insanely delicious and addicting!

Coconut milk is loaded with healthy saturated fat, which is great for hair, skin, nails, brain function, heart health, and metabolism. It’s also rich in nutrients like iron, manganese, copper, potassium, and selenium, which all are important for every day health.

Pineapple juice is rich in Vitamin C, vitamin B6, manganese, copper, which can help reduce inflammation, aid indigestion, boost immunity, and promote heart health.

Matcha tea is slightly less caffeinated than coffee. A 3 oz scoop of matcha tea contains about 68 mg of caffeine whereas a cup of coffee on average contains about 90 mg of caffeine. Matcha is packed with catechins, which are very strong antioxidants that are linked to cellular repair.
