Blend up this tropical matcha smoothie and you might feel like you are mentally sailing away in no time.
Bright, tropical flavors combine with the power of matcha green tea to create a creamy drink that is energizing, calming, and so delicious. (Be aware that matcha does contain caffeine however!)
For this recipe you will need:
- Ripe banana: The more brown spots, the sweeter it will be. Use either fresh or frozen. Frozen banana works great to help create a creamier texture as well.
- Mango: Either fresh or frozen works great.
- Pineapple: Fresh, frozen, or canned pineapple.
- Organic matcha powder: Be sure to use a good quality powder that is bright green in color. (Either ceremonial grade, latte grade, or even a culinary grade will work for this recipe.)
- Orange juice
- Almond milk: Or other dairy-free milk such as soy milk, cashew milk, etc. Coconut milk is also a great choice for added "tropical" flavor.
Note: If you are new to matcha, you can learn more about the benefits on my Matcha Guide.
