Matcha Green Tea Smoothie Recipes


I've shared my Super Smoothie Recipe before, but I want to share a smoothie that I make every once in a while that is more of a treat. 

The first time I ever tried a matcha green tea smoothie was at my previous gym and I was immediately hooked. Match green tea powder is full of antioxidants and it's an energy booster. Because I knew the matcha powder the gym used had added sugars, and I didn't want to have to spend $5 a day on smoothies I decided to look into making my own. Here is the recipe I came up with: 

1 Teaspoon Organic Matcha Green Tea powder (I order mine online from Vitacost)
2 Frozen Bananas
Almond milk

Add all the blender and blend until smooth. 

The amount of almond milk you use depends on the consistency you want. You can use less, and get almost a matcha green tea banana ice cream, or use more to get a regular smoothie consistency. I would start with 1/4 cup and add little by little from there. Usually about a half cup is good. I use PLAIN almond milk for this. The bananas make it perfectly sweet, vanilla almond milk would make it too sweet for my liking. 

There you have it. A simple, delicious and very healthy smoothie treat!

What's your favorite kind of smoothie?

  1. I love treat smoothies. Thanks for sharing your recipe! I think my favorite smoothie is banana blueberry. It's just a frozen banana, some fresh blueberries, a splash of OJ, and crushed ice. Sometimes it's not sweet enough, so I add honey.
