Matcha Smoothie

Sharing is caring!

There are more than a few ways to enjoy matcha, an increasingly popular green tea powder. I am adding another to the list with this matcha smoothie.

It wasn’t enough to simply add the green powder to the smoothie; I decided to also use it as a glass rim with honey to really make the flavor stand out! Top it with some crushed pumpkin seeds for some extra green goodness and a little bit of crunch.

We serve this matcha smoothie for Matcha Monday in our house. Some of my other popular green smoothies include this cucumber smoothie, spinach smoothie and smoothie with mixed greens.

🍵Ingredients

Matcha smoothie ingredients prepped on dark brown background.
  • honey – You will use liquid honey to get the matcha powder to stick to the rim.
  • matcha powder – I like to buy it in a big tin because it ends up being cheaper. I always opt for organic, non-GMO.
  • oat milk – Oat milk has a nice, thick and creamy texture perfect for smoothies.
  • vanilla Greek yogurt – Sweetened is okay.
  • banana slices – Frozen.
  • pumpkin seeds – Raw and shelled.

🥣How to Make it

  1. Pour the honey onto a small plate and spread it out. Dip the rim of a glass into the honey to coat it.
  2. Add 1 teaspoon of matcha powder to a separate flat plate and spread it out. Dip the glass into the matcha powder so that it sticks to the honey on the rim. Let it sit while you make the smoothie.
  3. Add all of the smoothie ingredients to a blender. Blend on high speed until smooth.
  4. Transfer to the matcha-rimmed glass. Top with the pumpkin seeds. Serve!

🏃🏻‍♀️Calories & Caffeine Content

One serving of this smoothie contains about 462 calories. According to Healthline, 1 gram of matcha powder can contain between 19–44 mg of caffeine. Two teaspoons of matcha powder equals approximately 5 grams, which would mean this smoothie has anywhere between 95 mg and 220 mg of caffeine, not counting the rim.

❓Recipe FAQs

Is matcha good in smoothies?

Matcha is excellent in smoothies. There is no need to form a paste first like you normally would in matcha drinks because it combines easily with the help of a blender and it tastes delicious.

What fruit goes well with matcha?

Fruits like strawberries, bananas and blueberries go great with matcha.

What milk goes best with matcha?

While I use oat milk for this smoothie you could also use whole cow’s milk because it’s also rich and creamy.
