There is no telling how many unattractive smoothie recipes I am going to post here…just know way to know. But, just look at that gorgeous matcha powder! It is a thing of beauty. Be distracted. The smoothie isn’t as pretty. However, these flavors pair so well together. If you have never had matcha, it is a finely milled high quality green tea powder prized for it’s taste and health benefits. The bright flavor of the matcha still comes through in this smoothie, and it has a touch of tropical, creamy sweetness. It feels like an indulgent treat. It is a nice change from my regular hot matcha coconut lattes.
Here, I strategically put it by the fruit on our table to pretty it up. Better? Oh, its not? Its okay, it is still really, really delicious and the perfect way to start the day.
1 cup coconut milk (I used a blended refrigerated brand)
1 tsp organic matcha powder (Sticker shock may ensue. It is worth it. I promise.)
1/2 frozen banana
1/4 cup pineapple
In a blender, combine ingredients and pulse until completely smooth. You may want to stir in the matcha powder before blending to prevent any little lumps.
