Matcha Green Tea Malted Milkshake

January 18, 2011


Hey Nextdoor Neighbor,

Hi.  How are you?

Listen.  I know you’re attractive.  I know that you know you’re attractive.  It’s not really that big of a deal.  It’s not like you’re a model or anything.  Mostly… you wear nice hats.

I think it would be nice of you to say hello to me when I say hello to you when we’re passing on the sidewalk.  I see you see me.  Just say hi.  I do, after all, hear you sneeze super loud, and put up with you when you blast your 90′s jams and… I suspect it is your stupid dog that leaves giant turds on old Lucy’s lawn… but I say nothing.

Maybe you’re shy.  I’m shy too.  Just say hi.  If you did say hello, I’d probably bring you cookies and cakes, and make you a milkshake instead of making my cat a milkshake.

See what you’re missing?  It doesn’t have to be like this.

Love, Joy



I realize that I’ve made something very simple with two ingredients that you probably don’t have in your pantry.

I realize that I’ve just made things more complicated for you.  The links will show you where to buy these ingredients.

Matcha Green Tea is green tea leaves that have been ground super fine.  When mixed with warm water and honey, it makes a bright green tea drink.  It’s super good and super healthful.

Malt powder is a dried version of malted barley, wheat and milk.  In cold, ice cream beverages malt powder adds a…. flavor.  Wait, I actually don’t know how to describe a malted milkshake at all.  It tastes like… malt.  It’s yummy.


Green tea, malt, vanilla and a touch of honey.  The flavors together taste like sweet, vanilla green tea with a twist.

Matcha powder and malt powder are totally worth buying.  I make tea and bread and malted milkshakes lots and lots.  Fun.  Delicious.
