Vanilla Matcha Smoothie Recipe

Vanilla Matcha Smoothie Recipe

This energizing smoothie is a nice change from your typical fruit smoothie or that morning coffee.

If you’re craving a caffeine hit, Matcha gives a longer lasting energy boost than coffee. It doesn’t hit you hard and then cause you to crash. Plus the recipe really is delicious!


  • 1 cup of unsweetened almond milk (or other non-dairy milk)
  • 1 scoop of vanilla protein powder (your choice, no added sugar)
  • 1-2 tsp matcha green tea powder (start with less if you’re new to matcha - it packs a kick!)
  • ½ frozen banana
  • Ice cubes (optional)
  • 1 large handful of spinach or kale (optional, but recommended)


  1. Combine all ingredients into a blender and blend until desired smoothness is achieved.
  2. Sip and enjoy!
