Christmas Matcha, Strawberry and Watermelon Smoothie

Ho Ho Ho, It's nearly Christmas.

That means the time to be jolly and indulge yourself.

It means awkward kisses under the mistletoe (what is mistletoe?).

It means long, long days spent with your boring precious family members.

And of course blatant consumerism and gift buying (more on that later).

But for now I have a Christmas themed recipe for you all.

Christmas Matcha, Strawberry and Watermelon Smoothie

strawberry watermelon smoothie

Ingredients:

  • Half a punnet of strawberries
  • Tsp matcha powder
  • Handful of mint leaves
  • 1 lime (this cost me $2 - outrageous)
  • Watermelon
  • Cup of ice cubes
  • 1/2 a banana (not pictured)
  • 1 green apple

Here's a photo for those that can't read:

Method:

Well there are two parts to this masterpiece,  the green and the red. So keep that in mind, and keep them separate

GREEN:

Dissolve the matcha with a little warm water, 

Add the apple. some of the mint, lime juice, banana and matcha with half of the ice - BLEND

RED:

Blend together the strawberries, watermelon and plenty of ice.

At this stage I put both the green and red mixtures in the freezer for an hour so they were thick enough.

Once the mixture is thick enough, layer it in a tall glass. The banana really helps with the thickness of the green and gives it some sweetness. 

Save some mint and strawberries to garnish it, then presto:

 Watermelon Green tea smoothie

It should look something like that.
