Best Matcha Green Tea Smoothie

Matcha Green Tea Smoothie

Here at the Matcha Connection, we love matcha smoothies. So setting out to find the best matcha green tea smoothie was this writers dream assignment!

Below we will share all of our favorite matcha green tea smoothie recipes and we will also share some awesome tips for making them!​

Yes, we have tried all of these matcha smoothies on numerous occasions and ranked them on a number of criteria in order to determine our editor's choice for the best matcha green tea smoothie.​

Some of these matcha smoothies are intended to be made with matcha, while others are common smoothie recipes that we simply added matcha to in order to create a matcha green tea smoothie.​

By adding Matcha you can take advantage of the many health benefits of matcha,  including​ the numerous antioxidants and the increased focus and mental clarity associated with matcha green tea.

Matcha has a very high concentration of the amino acid L-Theanine​ which balances the effects of caffeine.

Even though matcha contains more caffeine than other teas, with matcha you get the alertness from the caffeine, but without the shakiness and crash associated with it.

Instead you get a calm alertness with extreme mental clarity.

No more 3pm crash!

As you may know, there are different grades of matcha green tea powder ranging from Ceremonial grade, which is best for making matcha green tea, to Culinary grade, which is best for making a matcha green tea smoothie.​ You can use ceremonial grade for smoothies, but it is much more expensive and not necessary.

Before we get to the matcha green tea smoothie recipes, I just want to take a quick second to talk about the blenders that we use for making our smoothies here at the Matcha Connection.

We have found the the best ​blender for preparing matcha green tea smoothies is the NutriBullet. We also like the Vitamix, but it is much more expensive. The NutriBullet really shines when you are adding leafy greens like spinach and kale.

NutriBullet Pro 900

NutriBullet Magic Bullet

While not as good as the Pro 900, the Magic Bullet still makes a good matcha green tea smoothie and is less expensive.

Vitamix Pro Series

Awesome Blender!The reason it didn't get a better rating is because the price is too high, but it did a great job in our tests!
