TENZO Matcha Vanilla Bean Soda Floats

A dessert, a drink, a snack, whatever you call it, a Root Beer float is the quintessential summer drink. Creamy vanilla ice cream mixes with sweet soda to form an almost perfect treat. And now, we’ve decided to put our own special Tenzo twist on this icy classic… Introducing the Matcha Vanilla Bean Float. Similar to the original, this recipe has a sweet soda mixed with a rich vanilla ice cream. But, unlike the original, this delicious drink has the magic of matcha. It may take a little more effort to make than just pouring soda over a scoop of ice cream, but trust us on this one, the payoff is so worth it. Grab your matcha and indulge in your new favorite summertime float.

I quit coffee for matcha. It was hard at first. But Tenzo helped me succeed. I’m a new person because of it! And the packaging is so pretty and the Matcha is so yummy! I definitely recommend Tenzo!
