St-Patty’s Day is almost upon us, and we’ve got a sweet treat to celebrate with – sans hangover!
Inspired by the greenest of holidays, we designed a float that doesn’t need wheels or a parade, just some really tasty vegan matcha ice cream. With all the detoxifying and energizing benefits of stone-ground green tea, this vegan root beer float made with our popular Matcha Matsu tea is sure to perk you right up, all while being (almost) guilt-free.
Who says it’s not easy being green?
