Watermelon Matcha (with Shaved Fruit)

Prep Time10 minutes
Freezing Time3 hours
Course: Drinks
Servings: 1 serving


  • microplane or use a grater
  • juicer optional
  • bamboo matcha whisk
  • tea sifter


  • 1 1/2 tsp matcha powder
  • 1/4 cup hot water (roughly 175F)
  • 1 cups watermelon juice fresh or storebought
  • 2 slices frozen watermelon


Prepare frozen watermelon slices

  • Slice watermelon in half, then into slices about 1 1/2" thick. Slice into 3 pieces to create nice watermelon wedges. Line a baking sheet or freezer safe sheet with parchment paper, lay flat and freeze for 3 hours or until frozen solid.

Assemble watermelon matcha

  • Sift matcha powder into a small bowl and add hot water. Use a bamboo whisk to whisk back and forth in an M shaped motion, until nice and frothy (about 30 sec). There should be no clumps remaining.
  • Fill a 12 oz glass with ice and watermelon juice, leaving enough room in the glass to add the shot of prepared matcha. Pour the matcha shot in.
  • Using a microplane, grate 1-2 slices of frozen watermelon on top of the drink to finish, just before serving. Stir and enjoy!
