This was a great before a workout smoothie, light and refreshing with just the right natural sweetness and tartness from fresh fruit. You don't taste the green tea at all, but benefit from the extra boost of energy and not to mention health benefits green tea has. If you are looking for a filling breakfast smoothie to hold you over until lunch, I'd toss in a banana or handful of oatmeal. If you like sweet smoothies add some honey or agave nectar. I did hold off adding the whole cup of tea, and liked the consistency of the smoothie at a little less than 3/4 cup. I'm not sure why it is called crunchy, unless you add ice, mine was pretty smooth.-15 Apr 2015

The Ingredients: A Closer Look

Ananas comosus • Pineapple

A mixture of sulfur-containing proteolytic enzymes known as bromelain are a component of pineapple fruit. Bromelain and the consumption of whole pineapple has an anti-inflammatory effect and may speed recovery following traumatic injuries. Consider bromelain as a complementary nutraceutical to treat neuralgia or to help speed healing following carpal tunnel surgery in cases of Bell’s palsy. Bromelain attenuates inflammation due to aberrant production of prostaglandins and has fibrinolytic effects, so may also be appropriate to prevent reflex sympathetic dystrophy following hand or foot trauma or to help speed recovery following head trauma. Bromelain has been found to prevent the breakdown of curcumin, and the duo of bromelain and turmeric have been commonly used for pain and musculoskeletal inflammation in Ayurvedic medicine. Whole pineapple is not commonly used as an herbal medicine in tincture or dry form, but isolated bromelain is listed in this chapter as a complementary encapsulation to many teas and tinctures.

Zingiber officinale • Ginger

Zingiber may improve neuralgic pain and inhibit inflammatory enzyme systems. Poultices of fresh ginger roots have traditionally been used topically over painful joints or acute neuralgia. Large and frequent doses appear the most effective. Ginger is also settling to the stomach, relieving gas and having an antispasmodic and warming effect. Zingiber is high in volatile oils including cineole, citral, borneol, and the antiseptic phenolic gingerol. Ginger is expectorating, diaphoretic, and a circulatory stimulant.

Curcuma longa • Turmeric

Turmeric contains the yellow-pigmented anti-inflammatory known as curcumin. Curcuma extracts are useful for inflammatory conditions including arthritis, trauma, and inflammation that is secondary to infection. Curcumin has been well studied and has been shown to encourage the breakdown of fibrin, inhibit platelet aggregation, and halt inflammatory processes by inhibiting leukotriene formation. Curcuma is an all-purpose anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective agent that can be included in formulas for neuralgia and neurodegeneration.

Matcha Green Tea Smoothie Recipe

1. Quick Green Smoothie


When green tea is combined with spinach, the health benefits are tremendous and varied. Spinach contains vitamins and iron. The addition of banana brings some much-needed potassium to this recipe and the grapes give the smoothie some delicious sweetness.

  • 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

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.

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.

2. Refreshing Peach Green Tea Smoothie


Passion Fruit Tropical Smoothie

This fruity smoothie is naturally sweetened with ripe, juicy fruit which makes it perfect for anyone looking to cut added sugar from their diet. As the fruit ripens, the amount of natural sugar increases, eliminating the need to add extra sugar. This is especially true with mangoes, pineapples, and bananas. Add these fruits to your smoothies for any time a sugar craving strikes.

Pineapple is full of bromelain, an enzyme that helps to fight inflammation in the body.

Mangoes are rich in vitamin C and fiber and provide a range of potential health benefits from supporting healthy digestion to helping boost the immune system.

Tropics on Ice With Matcha Syrup

Nashville, Tennessee might not be the first place you think of when it comes to après-ski, but the lack of snow and proximity to big mountains doesn't prevent Embers Ski Lodge, a winter sports-inspired bar and restaurant, from paying homage to the ritual of mountain happy hour. Even if you are familiar with mountain happy hours, a pineapple juice-based cocktail with homemade matcha syrup might not be an obvious choice. But Embers Ski Lodge draws its inspiration from lodges out in the Pacific Northwest and Rocky Mountains where, according to Zak Klapperich, the bar lead at Embers, "It's actually pretty common for west coast ski lodges to fill their menus with tropical items as they are inspired by the Pacific islands and certain Asian cultures."

When you think about it though, a tropical-inspired drink is kind of the perfect beverage for a ski lodge, even one located below the Mason-Dixon Line. "The idea originally was to make something fresh and tropical but not super sweet for a nice summer morning drink," explained Klapperich, that'll wake you up and prep you for a day on the slopes&mdashor just a leisurely brunch.

Enter the Tropics on Ice, a spiked, fizzy, and fruity drink that's become a bar favorite, made with pineapple juice and a unique matcha syrup. "The matcha syrup we make was an experiment gone right," said Klapperich. "Teas are often introduced in cocktails for their ability to flavor a drink without dominating it, and matcha in particular is really growing in popularity so we gave it a try. It has a subtle earthy flavor and a cool color which equally translates well into cocktails." Especially those that are meant to be enjoyed on the slopes of a mountain, when you want something to warm you up a little bit.

So kick off your ski boots&mdashor flip-flops, as the case may be&mdashand pour yourself this tropical inspired, après-ski-friendly beverage for brunch. You'll feel ready to hit the slopes or the sand or whatever else might come your way, guaranteed.


This detox smoothie is FULL of healthy, naturally detoxifying elements. Let’s take a look at each ingredient.

Cilantro contains phytonutrients, flavonoids, and active phenolic compounds. It helps your body get rid of heavy metals by binding to them and moving them out. Eating a diet rich in cilantro can also have great anti-inflammatory and digestive benefits [source].

It is a potent antioxidant that helps to protect the skin from the aging effects of UV light exposure [ source ] If you’re one of the thousands of people who can’t stand cilantro, try adding it in small amounts to pesto or smoothies to reap the benefits without being overwhelmed by the flavor.

Green tea is high in flavonoids (antioxidants) and is the best source of catechins. Catechins are a group of antioxidants that fight disease by stopping cell damage in its tracks. These guys are even more powerful than vitamins C and E.

Through these powerful compounds and others, green tea appears to lower the risk of certain kinds of cancer [source], treat chronic inflammatory diseases [source], and help prevent bone loss [source] and heart disease [ source ].

Cucumbers don’t get as much attention as they should—they are great sources of vitamin C, K, beta-carotene, and molybdenum. They are full of phytonutrients that provide antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anticancer benefits [ source ].

Pineapple is one of the best sources of vitamin C around. Just one 8-ounce serving provides 131% of the recommended daily value for vitamin C. It is also an excellent source of bromelain, an enzyme that aids in digestion [ source ]. Pineapple is also an excellent source of manganese, as well as several of the B vitamins.

Ginger has long been known to help with digestive troubles, but more recently, studies have shown that it also has many anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties [ source ]. Ginger contains gingerol, which can help reduce the symptoms of arthritis [ source ]. It also helps with circulation and gives your metabolism a big boost.

Avocados are a superfood, serving as an excellent source of numerous vitamins and minerals, including potassium, magnesium, and high amounts of anti-inflammatories and antioxidants [ source ]. The high healthy fat content in avocados helps the body to absorb the fat-soluble vitamins A, E, D, and K. Adding in some avocado each day will also help add fiber to your diet, which in turn helps with digestion [ source ].

Lemon juice is a natural diuretic with cleansing and detox properties [ source ]. It’s high in vitamin C, citric acid, magnesium, and calcium, all of which give the immune system a boost. Starting the day with lemon juice will help improve digestion. It works with the liver to cleanse the body, balance pH levels, and clear the skin.

Raw honey contains phytonutrients with antibacterial and antiviral properties that can boost the body’s immune system and help to fight illness [ source ]. It also contains trace minerals, enzymes, and antioxidants. Pasteurizing can destroy the benefits of honey, so it’s best to consume it in its raw state [ source ].

Raw honey is a source of the enzyme amylase, which helps the body to digest carbohydrates. Another benefit of honey, particularly local honey, is that it can help your immune system to combat spring allergies [ source ]. (Don’t give any type of honey to babies under 12 months of age, though, due to the risk of infant botulism [ source ].)


Midnight Snack Smoothies

I’m normally not a proponent of eating in the middle of the night, but if you’re gonna, it may as well be something healthy! The best midnight smoothies are higher in fat so you don’t spike your blood sugar before going back to bed, and contain ingredients that help the body relax so you can get a good night’s rest. Here’s a hint a reader once taught me, if you don’t want to wake anyone by firing up your blender: use an immersion blender!

  • Chocolaty Breakfast Smoothie
    Cacao powder is a great ingredient to include in your late-night smoothies. And that’s raw, by the way, not the same as Hershey’s processed cocoa powder, which doesn’t have the same medicinal benefits. Raw cacao contains magnesium, which helps relax your muscles. That’s your permission to reach for the chocolate after a tense day! It’s also high in anandamide, the “feel good” chemical that’ll put you in a dream state even before your head hits the pillow.
  • Chai Green Smoothie
    The spices in this smoothie are warming and grounding, just what you need in the middle of the night when you’re trying to keep things low-key. They taste great with the banana and almond butter, the latter helping fill you up to avoid hunger pangs in the middle of the night. For the banana, I suggest throwing the whole thing in the blender, peel and all, as its high magnesium content promotes relaxation. Some folks even make a tea out of the banana peel to sip before bed—but a smoothie is probably more palatable!
  • Avocado Dream Smoothie
    Sweet dreams guaranteed with this smoothie! It’s a super simple, super green mix starring avocado. Its fiber and fat helps avoid high blood sugar so you have an easy time drifting off to sleep. Feel free to add a handful of frozen pineapple for a tropical twist.

There you have it, smoothies for every meal, even the small ones in between! Quick, easy, and delicious, so you can spend less time cooking, and more time using all the extra amazing energy you’ll gain from having nutrient-dense, well-balanced meals.
