Made it and loved it. Followed the recipe except I added frozen cantaloupe on a whim. Will make again!
That's fantastic, Anita! What a great idea adding cantaloupe as well. Thanks for sharing your kind and helpful feedback!
OMGG this is so delicious! I made it with honey instead of maple syrup because that’s what I had on hand but I can’t wait to try it with maple I’m sure it’s just as delicious!
Wonderful to hear, Nickey! Great call with the honey substitution - so glad you enjoyed it!
It was so good but I had to use honey since we're out of maple syrup! Maybe add a bit more matcha powder by the way! Other than that it was really good thanks for sharing your recipe!
Definitely feel free to adjust the matcha powder to your preference next time! So glad you enjoyed it, Emily!
Great way to use bananas up.
Thanks, Ruth! Glad you enjoyed.
Delicious! I added some spinach and a teaspoon of vanilla extract!
Great additions - thanks for sharing!
Added a few cubes of frozen mango instead of the syrup (I was out) and omitted the ice cubes. Needed some more milk but super yummy and the mango added some brightness.
What a great idea! Thanks so much for sharing your helpful feedback.
Loved it! Didn't add the maple syrup since the banana was sweet enough. I used Unsweetened Almond milk. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
Wonderful to hear, Liz! Thanks for sharing your kind and helpful feedback!
Good recipe. My husband loves the matcha frappuccinos from starbucks, but those have a TON of processed sugar in them, so I was looking for a better option. I put a couple of pitted dates instead of maple sugar, and it came out nice and sweet, but the dates are still kind of chunky and got stuck in my straw. I'll use maple syrup next time if I have it lol. I had some matcha cling to the sides of my blender cup too. I read somewhere that if you whisk it with a small amount of hot water first, it'll dissolve better, so I might try that next time, and maybe add extra ice later to compensate. It's fun to experiment with smoothies!
Hi Nicole! Thank you so much for your kind & helpful feedback. Glad you enjoyed this one!
So yummy! I've used oat milk, vanilla almond milk, vanilla almond/coconut milk either unsweetened or reduced sugar. I'm not a maple syrup fan but you really don't need it if the bananas are ripe. Try monk fruit or a little bit of agave. It's all to taste. Great for a hot day or for a nosh.
Love your variations! Thanks so much for sharing!
