Creamy Banana Matcha Smoothie


As you may have guessed, I'm still matcha crazy! While my favorite way to drink it is whisking a warm bowl of pure matcha tea every morning (see my matcha page here), this creamy smoothie is another amazing way to enjoy it as the temps heat up. We've been enjoying these as a mid-day pick-me-up a couple times a week. Banana and matcha are a beautiful pair and this refreshing, energizing, antioxidant-rich smoothie is a perfect summer drink. The best part? It takes less than 5 minutes and only 4-ingredients to make! Cheers to another matcha-filled summer! ;)


Vegan, gluten-free
Serves 1

Ingredients
1 ripe banana, frozen if possible
3/4 cup non-dairy milk
1 tsp. Encha organic matcha (I use latte-grade)
2 tsp. pure maple syrup
2-3 ice cubes

Directions
Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.

Variations: add vanilla extract, more/less sweetener, or a spinach/kale boost!
Note: the more brown spots on the banana, the sweeter it'll be :)
