This cold and creamy Matcha smoothie or smoothie bowl is packed with healthy ingredients. A Matcha smoothie is a refreshing and nutritious breakfast or snack
The smoothie-shaped Matcha is a fun change though, and you’ll see versions of them at places like Jamba Juice, Whole Foods, and even Starbucks. This Matcha smoothie recipe is perhaps the healthiest I’ve seen as it has no processed ingredients or refined sugars, and it gets a superfood boost from undetectable Chia seeds and Spinach.
Matcha Smoothie Bowl Recipe
PREP TIME 5 minutes
TOTAL TIME 5 minutes
2 ripe bananas, peeled, sliced , and frozen (~ 120 g each)
1/4 cup ripe Pineapple, chopped (optional // frozen is best)
3/4 – 1 cup light Coconut milk (canned or carton) *
2 teaspoons of powdered Matcha Green Tea
1 heaping cup organic Spinach or Kale
1. Add frozen Banana slices, Pineapple, a smaller amount of Coconut milk, Matcha powder, and Spinach in a blender and blend over high heat until creamy and smooth.
2. Add just as much coconut milk as you need to help it blend. In my opinion, you want this smoothie somewhere in between preparable and drinkable.
3. Taste and adjust the flavor as needed, add more banana (or a touch of maple syrup or stevia) for sweetness, Matcha for a more intense flavor to green tea or coconut milk for creaminess (although add more Matcha powder so use your best discretion). The Pineapple will add a bit of tart/flavor so add more if you like.
4. Divide between two serving bowls and top with desired toppings (optional). I opted for fresh Raspberries, Chia seeds, and Coconut flakes. Bananas would also make a delicious side dish.
5. Best when fresh, though leftovers keep tightly sealed in the fridge for up to 24 hours.
