There is something refreshing about green tea.  And sometimes, you just want to take your green smoothie to the next level or give it that extra kick.  This simple green tea smoothie is just the thing to brighten your day.  Adding green tea to your smoothie can give it that extra kick you want and what a great way to get some added antioxidants into our bodies.  Check out Simple Green Smoothies post about changing up your green smoothie liquid-base HERE.

I love using organic matcha green tea powder to make my green tea.  I like DoMatcha and Republic of Tea.  There are many other great green teas out there to choose from, so choose what’s best for you (and please share in comments below!).  You can definitely use bagged tea as well.

Below is the recipe for Simple Green Tea Smoothie… I really love the combination of these ingredients in this smoothie.  Super delicious! We are on the cusp of something great and wonderful by spreading the word about green smoothies and raw food.

    Can I use green tea, a banana and frozen berries?

    Is it okay to use the leaves directly, non-brewed? I heard somewhere that if you use the leaves ( I use directly from the tea bag) and eat them, it is equal to 10 brewed green teas. I am just wondering if anyone can tell me if that is true and if it is healthy. Thanks

      Hi Dante,

      Great question! We suggest brewing the green tea prior to blending.

    I made this with a fresh banana and frozen mango, added chia seeds and plant based protein powder. Best smoothie EVER!

      Hi Gina,

      YAY! Thanks for sharing your green smoothie love!

    could you use frozen mango or tinned mango in this recipe?

    • SGS Rawkstar 9.14.2015 at 6:59 pm #

      Hi Anouk,

      We love reaching for frozen mango! Tinned mango, even if stored in its natural juice, contains additional sugar which we try to avoid.

      Happy Blendin’!

    Back to the green tea addition. Many recipes call for green tea, but it is unclear–does one add the Matcha powder directly to the smoothie to be blended in, or does it have to be brewed first?

      Great question! We suggest brewing the green tea prior to blending.

    Is frozen spinach okay to use?

    • SGS Rawkstar 7.9.2015 at 1:29 pm #

      Hi Jennifer,

      Great question! We love blendin’ with frozen leafy greens! Frozen greens from the grocery aisle doesn’t always yield the tastiest results, so we like to freeze our own! It’s perfect for stocking up on your favorite greens when they’re in season, or even better, on sale!

    Hi, I was wondering what the calorie count would be for this recipe?

    • SGS Rawkstar 5.28.2015 at 5:44 am #

      Hi Alexis,

      We personally don’t count calories, so we don’t include them in our recipes at this time. You’ll find that when you consume more nourishing whole fruits and veggies, you will not only feel full longer, but you’ll also have lessened cravings for high-calorie, nutritionally empty foods. So in the end it balances out. But we know many people would like to have calorie info. Three great resources for tracking calories are Self Nutrition Data, and the phone apps: My Fitness Pal and Lose It.

    Does anyone know if i kan use this reciepe with no mango and grapes? Just spaniach green tea and frozen banana? That is all i have at home thanks

      Hey Jocellyne.

      Thanks for the comment. If you are allergic to mangos and grapes try adding a peach in place of the mango and try a pear in place of the grapes. 🙂 Hope that helps. If you just want a green tea, leafy greens and banana smoothie, then go for it. 🙂
