**Updated May 1, 2014

Try this unique healthy recipe for a Matcha Green Tea Smoothie with Avocado and feel great!

Megan Flanagan has been supporting me and my efforts to build this happy, healthy and fit community since October and I so adore her! She is a college student studying nutrition in Texas and a wildly talented cross country runner. I have so enjoyed having her support with research for new blog posts and the dedication she has given to developing the Instagram Account for Eat. Drink & be Skinny and the Twitter account for the 30 Day Challenge Series. She is amazing! I asked her to create a guest post so I could feature her as more than the wonderful behind the scenes support she has been. And true to her nature, not only did she research and write a great blog post for me — she launched her own healthy lifestyle blog! Read below for a great new super food smoothie and  check out her healthy lifestyle blog at A Slice of Avocado!

Seriously how cute is Megan?

Matcha Green Tea Smoothie with Avocado

You may have heard of Matcha Green Tea Powder, but maybe aren’t sure how to use it – when in fact, it is the perfect ingredient to “green up” smoothies! Matcha is an antioxidant-powerhouse, cancer-fighter and fat-burner and in powdered form, one serving offers more health benefits than 10 cups of green tea! Known as a detoxifier, it also boosts metabolism and is packed with many other health benefits. When paired with avocado, a matcha smoothie offers protein, potassium, and some of those hard-to-find healthy, unsaturated fats.


This green smoothie recipe is simple, subtly sweet, and like no other. The avocado and banana add a creaminess to matcha’s flavor while adding vanilla yogurt or protein powder makes it taste almost like ice cream! The best part is, you can mix up the original by adding a fruit of your choice. My favorites are strawberry-kiwi, banana-berry, or tropical mango – this smoothie is one you can reinvent!

Matcha Green Tea Smoothie with Avocado:

  • 2 teaspoons matcha powder
  • ½ an avocado
  • ½ a frozen banana
  • 2 handfuls of spinach (trust me, you won’t taste it)
  • ½ cup nonfat or Greek yogurt and/or 1 scoop of protein powder (preferably vanilla)
  • 1 cup skim milk or soymilk
  • Ice as needed
  • If desired, add a fruit of your choice:
  • Strawberry-kiwi, extra banana, berries, or mango to flavor it up!

May 1, 2014 Update!

So this is Teresa here — I adored Megan as my intern while I had her and am still grateful to her for this post! It was my first introduction to Matcha Green Tea and since I have been asked to test out DoMatcha DoMatcha Organic 2nd Harvest Matcha and just had my first Matcha Green Tea Smoothie!

Matcha Green Team Smoothie

Just put it all in the blender for a minute or two and you’re good to go!

It was tasty, changed the flavor of my standard protein shake just a bit but I most LOVED the green color 🙂 So here is another recipe for a fun Matcha Green Tea Smoothie!

Enjoy!
