Matcha Mango Coconut Milk Smoothie Recipe

Matcha Tea Mango Smoothies
I love sipping on a green smoothie. Typically the green in my glass comes from adding handfuls of spinach or kale to the blender. This time that gorgeous green is from adding matcha tea powder. Beyond color, it adds green tea flavor and a caffeine kick to smoothies.
Vegan Matcha Mango Smoothie
This non-dairy smoothie recipe starts with a creamy base of coconut milk. Sweet mango contributes to the silky texture, and pairs well with the flavor of the matcha.

Matcha Mango Coconut Milk Smoothie Recipe
1/2 cup canned full-fat coconut milk
1/2 cup cold water
1 cup frozen mango chunks
1 to 2 teaspoons matcha green tea powder
1/2 cup ice cubes
Natural sweetener, if desired

Add coconut milk, water, mango chunks and matcha tea to blender container. Cover and blend until smooth. Add ice cubes; cover and blend until smooth. Taste and add natural sweetener, if needed.

Makes 2 small or 1 large smoothie (about 2 1/4 cups total)

Tip: Matcha is whole leaf Japanese green tea ground into a powder. The color and flavor of matcha tea can vary, and adding too much matcha can cause a bitter flavor. Start by adding a small amount of matcha, and increase according to taste. I don’t typically add sweetener, but you may need to add a touch of sweetness if the matcha tastes bitter.

Coconut Milk Green Smoothie Recipe

Vegan Green SmoothieFrom purple to pink to orange, I adore colorful smoothies. When it comes to healthy smoothies for breakfast, a green smoothie is my top choice. For this green smoothie recipe I started with a base of coconut milk to keep it vegan and dairy free. Then I added mango for sweetness and baby spinach for a pop of green color and fresh flavor. For a nutritional boost, I included a spoonful of both sesame seed and hemp seed.

Mixed Berry Chia Smoothie Recipe

Berry Chia SmoothieLove or hate: where do you stand on chia smoothies? Since I’ve posted several chia recipes, you may have guessed that I love chia smoothies.how to add chia to smoothiesWhen I’m looking for a more filling smoothie, I add chia seed gel to my smoothie glass. (Chia seed gel is made by soaking chia seeds in water until they absorb the liquid and form a gel.) I don’t blend the chia seeds with my smoothie because I like the texture of the chewy, gelled chia seeds. Plus, the teeny tiny chia seeds are fun to suck up with a straw.

Mixed Berry Chia Smoothie Recipe

1/2 cup cold water
1 tablespoon chia seeds
1 cup unsweetened almond milk or cashew milk (I use homemade nut milk)
1/4 cup canned, full-fat coconut milk
1 cup frozen mixed berries
Natural sweetener, if desired

To make chia gel, combine cold water and chia seeds in a small bowl. Let stand at room temperature for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until chia seeds soak up the water and form a gel.

For smoothie, add almond milk, coconut milk and berries to blender container. Cover and blend until smooth. Taste and sweeten as desired.

Divide chia seed gel between 2 glasses. Pour smoothie over chia seed gel. Serve with a straw to stir the smoothie and suck up the chewy chia seeds.

Makes 2 servings

Strawberry Mango Smoothie Recipe

Strawberry Mango Smoothie This creamy fruit smoothie is made with fresh mango, frozen strawberries, coconut milk and almond milk. You can use purchased almond milk, but homemade almond milk is richer and tastes better. For added flavor and texture, I add a sprinkle of almond meal to the smoothie before serving.

Strawberry Mango Smoothies Recipe (vegan)
3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
1/4 cup full fat coconut milk
1/2 cup fresh mango chunks
1 cup frozen strawberries
Natural sweetener, if desired
Almond meal, for sprinkling

Add almond milk, coconut milk, fresh mango chunks and frozen strawberries to a blender container. Cover and blend until smooth. Taste and sweeten as desired. Pour into glasses and sprinkle with almond meal.

Makes 1 big or 2 small smoothies (about 2 cups total)

Tip: I’ve found it’s best to use fresh mango (or frozen mango that has been thawed) when blending this smoothie. If you use frozen mango, you may need to add additional almond milk for easier blending.
