The Matcha Machine, a drink to fight the summer humidity…while it’s still here.
August is already approaching it’s end, how sad. Summer was way, way too fast! I’ve been pinning all these smoothie and cocktail recipes (some seen in links below my recipe), but I decide to create one of my own. I basically just whipped together the ingredients I had in my fridge and it came out great! That’s really what smoothies are…some of your favorite things thrown together, blended to a perfect consistency and enjoyed as one awesome drink.
This one I like to call the Matcha Machine. What you will need for a single smoothie:
- 3 tbsp Matcha Green Tea Latte Mix (Trader Joe’s)
- 1 Frozen Banana
- A Handful of Frozen blueberries (around 20-30)
- 1/2 cup Milk (Vanilla Almond Milk would probably be good too!)
- 2/3 cup Plain Greek Yogurt
IMPORTANT: Put the single serving amount of matcha green tea mix (3 tbsp) in a cup and pour a small amount (3-5oz) of hot water and mix to create a fully liquid form. Going from powder to liquid. This helps dissolve the powder, so you are not tasting chunks of powder in your smoothie.
After that step is complete, combine ingredients into the blender until your desired consistency is created! Add more yogurt or a few ice cubes to create a thicker smoothie. Add granola, coconut and fruit on top if desired :).
