A Vegan Green Tea Smoothie That's Great for Breakfast or Dessert

This subtly sweet vegan smoothie makes the perfect summer breakfast: ultra-creamy with a hint of grassy green tea powder, it's delicious enough to double as dessert.

Why this recipe works:

  • Freezing the banana overnight helps keep the drink extra-cold.
  • Savory matcha powder adds a deep flavor while toning down the sweetness of the banana and soy milk.


  • 1 banana, peeled, cut into chunks, and frozen overnight
  • 1 cup plain unsweetened soy milk
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons agave nectar
  • 1 teaspoon matcha (Japanese green tea) powder


  1. 1.

    Add banana, soy milk, agave, and matcha to blender. Blend on high until completely smooth, about 30 seconds. Pour into a glass and serve immediately.
