Thanksgiving is over. It’s time to get rid of the holiday bloat. Right? Am I right?
I was asked to do a review for Kiss Me Organics and their Matcha Green Tea powder for my other site More to Life than Chocolate. The recipe actually turned out pretty good. I mean, real good. So good I made it a few more times and started adding this Matcha Green Tea powder to my smoothies. I’m a green tea junkie. In the colder months I’m sipping it all day long. In the warmer months you can find me with the iced variety, even slurping down some iced green tea lattes. With almond milk of course. C’mon now, don’t knock it until you try it.
Since I wasn’t really thinking about putting this recipe up here, I just snapped the photos with my iPhone. I’m not much for photography on More to Life. That’s on my 2014 Resolutions list. To revamp some of my older sites and to push harder with my new site, WAH Living. (Work At Home). I’m hoping 2014 will bring many new and wonderful changes to life.
One of those changes is to continue my battle with the PCOS bulge and smoothies are one way to battle that.
Here’s the recipe for the green tea smoothie.
Vanilla, Fruit & Green Tea Smoothie
- 1 cup water
- 1 tsp Matcha Green Tea Powder
- 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
- 1 frozen banana
- 1 cup frozen mixed berries
- Toss all ingredients into a blender and mix well.

OMG, I will show this to the husband. He and I both are on a green tea kick for health reasons. This also looks good and would be better than having a dessert.
I love green tea. I drink it warm and cold year round. This Matcha powder is really good, you can find it on eBay too. I am going to make a batch of green tea ice cream out of it.
This looks good. I’m going to show your recipe to my mother, who’s on a huge smoothie kick right now. Thanks!
Thank you so much!I hope she likes it. I really like the Matcha green tea. It gives me a nice boost of energy.

Matcha? I’ve never heard of it before, but I love the benefits of green tea. I’ll have to check it out.
I never heard of it either until now. I really enjoy it. Now I don’t have to go to Starbucks for iced green tea lattes!
I’ve heard of using matcha powder before, but haven’t been brave enough try it—these smoothies do look delicious, though!
It is pretty yummy. Let me know how it turns out for you! (I only put a little in the fruit ones and don’t even notice the flavor. I do make a green tea latte and its yum!)

The green tea powder is becoming quite popular in smoothies. Gonna have to give it a try. This recipe looks great. Thanks for sharing!
You are welcome. It is quite good and quite the energy booster. I’m experimenting with it in other things and working on a smoothie recipe book (for the last month now lol) and hope to have it done soon! The green tea powder reminds me of the flavor of a Starbucks iced green tea latte.

I’ve drank green tea, and I love green smoothies–but I’ve never heard of this before. It looks good!
This green tea matcha is my new favorite. I have been drinking it warm as a latte for breakfast.
