Another Green Glass: Green Tea Bananarama Smoothie

Another Green Glass: Green Tea Bananarama Smoothie

Something in the back of my brain must be seeing green, because I’m addicted to green smoothies this week. Yesterday, I shared myKale-Pineapple Smoothie and today I’m back with another pale green beauty. When people were guessing the ingredients in my last green concoction on Facebook, someone guessed it was a green tea smoothie. That got me thinking that it had been a while since I used the matcha powder (green tea powder) in my pantry and that it would lend a perfect shade of mint green to my next blenderized beverage.

If you don’t like or don’t have matcha powder, you can leave it out. This smoothie would be pretty spectacular with cocoa powder instead, but I’d up the amount to 1 Tbsp.

Green Tea Bananarama Smoothie
Yield: 1 serving

1 frozen banana
1/2 cup pineapple chunks
2 Tbsp pineapple juice
1 cup plain soy (or other non-dairy) yogurt
1 1/2 tsp matcha powder
1 tsp maca powder (optional)
1 Tbsp agave or brown rice syrup (optional)

  1. Combine all ingredients in a blender. (I find it helps to use the order listed.) 
  2. Pulse a few times to break up the frozen banana.
  3. Puree until smooth and drink up!
