Avocado Matcha Smoothie is a new drink on rotation in our home right now.  It’s an uplifting and beautifully refreshing drink that also feels satisfying if you don’t have time for breakfast.  I love the bright green color and the matcha is a much better choice for happy belly.  Better than coffee!

Ingredients

SERVINGS: MAKES ABOUT 2½ CUPS

  • ½ ripe avocado, pitted, peeled
  • ½ cup coarsely chopped Tuscan kale
  • ½ cup frozen pineapple chunks
  • ¼ cup coarsely chopped coconut meat
  • 1 cup coconut water or iced green tea
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon matcha (green tea powder)
  • 1 tablespoon light agave nectar
  • Pinch of kosher salt
  • handful of spinach
How to:
Put it all in a Vitamix and blend until smooth.  The trick to a good smoothie is to blend it well but not too much; start the vitamix on low and slowly pump it up to full speed, then switch to highest speed right at the end.  Wind it down the same way and turn the machine off.  The machine prefers this method, too.  It’s better for your motor and prevents explosions. 🙂
Take in the unusual yumminess and feel the sustained energy from the matcha.
Good morning! xxx, Leah
