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.

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.
