Super Smoothie

I am so in love with these smoothies. It's a quick breakfast and the energy kick is unbelievable. I just discovered matcha powder and I will be using it in more recipes. I am not a big fan of green tea but this is just 1/4 teaspoon so you don't even taste it, you just get the benefits. You can't taste the spinach either. Be sure to add the blueberries. If you don't the color will be kind of brown. The raspberries add a nice little tart twist. I keep frozen chopped bananas in the freezer just for my smoothies. That way I don't have to wait for the bananas to ripen.

1-1/2 cup soy milk
1 ripe frozen banana
1 TB ground flax seed
1/4 tsp matcha tea powder
handful of organic spinach
6-7 frozen strawberries
1/4 cup frozen raspberries
1/3 cup frozen blueberries
Squirt of agave syrup, to taste

Place ingredients in blender and blend until smooth.


  1. Yummy looking color, much better than brown. :-) Great idea to use matcha powder in smoothies! I bought the matcha to use in another recipe and I've been wondering what else I should do with it. Thanks for the recipe!

  2. Lovely smoothie, Karen. I too am in a smoothie mood these days and am looking for a variety of recipes to keep it interesting. This is a good one.
