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.
