Matcha Smoothie

Sharing is caring!

There are more than a few ways to enjoy matcha, an increasingly popular green tea powder. We are adding another to the list with this matcha smoothie. It wasn’t enough to just add the green powder to the smoothie; we are also using 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.

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!
