Easy 5-Ingredient matcha green tea smoothie. This green smoothie is fruit and veggie packed, cold, double-thick, smooth, creamy and delicious!
This matcha green tea smoothie contains all the goodness of a regular green smoothie with added green tea flavor (subtle – but lovely) and all the antioxidants that green tea contains.
It’s pretty darn awesome and adds a wonderful flavor and richness to smoothies.
I’m always a fan of a good green smoothie and the addition of matcha green tea makes it something really special!
It’s fruit and veggie packed, cold, double-thick, smooth, creamy and utterly delicious! It’s also ready in 10 minutes! How much better can it get?
Caffeine In Matcha
So matcha powder has a little caffeine. I’m quite caffeine sensitive so I kept this smoothie pretty mild and only used 2 teaspoons of matcha powder.
Because when I say ‘caffeine sensitive’ what I really mean is ‘Crazy Eyes’ from ‘Orange Is the New Black’ ain’t got nothin’ on me!
I love how the matcha adds a subtle hint of green tea flavor to the smoothie without being overpowering. If you want more of a caffeine boost though, you could easily add more matcha powder to the recipe.
Perfect For Breakfast
This is GREAT for breakfast – doing double duty as your caffeine shot for the day as well as your super healthful infusion of fruit and veggie goodness to power you up for the day ahead.
So I’m a fan – I think you will be too!
This smoothie is best enjoyed immediately! The fresh fruits and vegetables can start to oxidize and lose some of their deliciousness as time goes on. However, you can store it in the fridge for a day if you need to then stir well and enjoy.
