Video Summary

Matcha Smoothie - How to Make healthy matcha smoothie with Banana, Baby Spinach, Frozen Grape and Milk. Tips and Tricks to make it tasty and healthy.  ChaCha and Kei from the Japanese Green Tea Co. show you step by step how to make in a fun and simple way.

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 teaspoon of Matcha Green Tea Powder (https://bit.ly/MatchaPremium)
  • 2 cups of Milk or Water
  • 1 cup of Ice
  • 1 cup of Baby Spinach Leaves
  • 2 cups of Frozen Green Grapes
  • 1 Frozen Banana (older banana tastes sweeter!)

INSTRUCTIONS

Step 1:
Before you put anything else, first put matcha. Matcha is so powdery, so if you put it in the end, it tends to fly out and stick to the side of the blender. Matcha I am using: https://bit.ly/MatchaPremium

Step 2:
You put the rest of them and add a cup of ice. If you use ice, you have to make sure that your blender is capable of crushing ice. (Some blenders are not meant to be used for ice, and it will break. - If your blender is not meant for ice, you skip the ice. Bananas and grapes are frozen anyway, so it still tastes good) Blender I am using in the video: Vitamix (works well with Ice): https://bit.ly/MatchaSmoothieBlender

Step 3:
Adding some milk or plain yogurt

Step 4:
Add any kind of fruit here. I found that Matcha and banana go so well together. So if you use them as the main ingredients; you cannot go wrong. Just add other fruits with them. Step 5: Turn blender On. INSTRUCTIONS and more matcha smoothie recipe ▶ https://bit.ly/QuickMatchaSmoothie

It is pretty easy to make, and it tastes so good.
Let me show you how.

Here is what you need.

  • 2 teaspoon of Matcha Green Tea Powder
  • 2 cups of Milk or Water
  • 1 cup of ice
  • 1 cup of Baby Spinach Leaves
  • 2 cups of Frozen Green Grapes AND
  • 1 Frozen Banana


ChaCha:
Why do you freeze grapes and bananas?

Kei:
Well... I bought too much last week.

So I froze them.

ChaCha:
You are giving me leftovers.

Thanks!

Kei:
Well, actually older bananas taste better with the smoothie.

ChaCha:
No Way

Kei:
Banana gets sweeter as it gets old, so you can freeze the leftovers
and it goes pretty well with the smoothie.

ChaCha:
Excuse...

Kei:
I like using matcha for the smoothie because it is already powdered.

But you can use loose-leaf sencha as well.

If you do use loose leaf tea, you can use a spice grinder or coffee grinder to powder them first.

ChaCha:
I want pink tea…

Kei:
Yes.. You can even make pink tea by adding strawberries!

ChaCha:
Ahhhh! Pink Tea!!

Kei:
Let’s make one.

Before you put anything else, first put matcha.

Matcha is so powdery, so if you put it in the end, it tends to fly out and stick to the side of the blender.

ChaCha:
Matchaaaa!!

You put the rest of them and add a cup of ice.
Now if you use ice, you have to make sure that your blender is capable of crushing ice.
Some blenders are not meant to be used for ice, and it will break.
If your blender is not meant for ice, you skip the ice.
Bananas and grapes are frozen anyway, so it still tastes good.
I like adding some milk or plain yogurt too.
You can actually add any kind of fruit here.
I found that Matcha and banana go so well together.
So if you use them as the main ingredients; you cannot go wrong.
Just add other fruits with them.

ChaCha:
Too much information! My head hurts.

Kei:
Let me switch the blender on.

ChaCha:
Waaaa!!!! Noisy!!

Kei:
Do you wanna try it out?

ChaCha:
Ahhhhhh so… good.

I love matcha smoothie…

Kei:
I'm glad you like it.
