My Go-To Matcha Banana Smoothie

Matcha Banana SmoothieAlright you guys, let’s talk smoothies! They’re one of my favorite go-to morning meals, especially on days when I’m heading to an early workout or don’t feel like cooking. Today happened to be one of the latter… mostly because I had smoothie recipes on the brain as soon as I woke up. For those of you who answered the poll on my Instagram Story, thank you so much for voting! And don’t worry, if this matcha banana smoothie recipe wasn’t what you were hoping for I’ll still be doing a DIY rose bath blog post when I’m back from my Euro adventures!

As most of you know, I’m a huge fan of matcha (literally just talked about it in my last Friday Favorites post). Not only is it great in latte form but I also think it’s a fantastic and nutritous addition to any morning smoothie! This particular recipe is so easy and only requires a handful of ingredients which I’m sure many of you already have. 

I’ve added the recipe card below so you can easily share, pin, save, etc. However, before you do that let’s quickly go into the “why” for each of the ingredients I use. 

Matcha Banana Smoothie Recipe

Ingredient benefits:  

  • 1 1/2 tsp matcha (I use Tenzo Tea): 
    • 1 cup of matcha has 10x more antioxidants than green tea! It also gives you a great boost of energy (without the crash), enhances your mood, detoxifies your body, and more
  • 2 frozen bananas
    • Provides a sweet, creamy texture for the smoothie and is full of nutrients like potassium and vitamin B9, which helps reduce stress, minimize bloating, and even fight depression
  • 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk 
    • Great non-dairy base for the smoothie and is about half the calories of cow’s milk 
  • 1 heaping tbsp cashew butter 
    • Naturally sweet, full of healthy fats, and keeps you feeling satiated all morning long
  • 1 tsp manuka honey (I like Comvita
    • The most beneficial type of honey in the world — it’s antimicrobrial, boosts immunity, improves sleep, and more
  • Pinch of cinnamon: 
    • Reduces inflammation and is another great source of antioxidants 
  • 1 serving Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides
    • Enhances appearance of hair, skin and nails. It also improves digestion and boosts joint health
  • Large handful of ice 
    • Makes the smoothie cold (duh), thick and refreshing

All you have to do is add all ingredients to a blender (starting with the dry ingredients and finishing with ice). Blend for 1 minute on high speed and voila! It’s sweet, creamy and tastes SO delicious.
