Green Tea and Mango Smoothie Recipe

Stop the presses! I have a new favourite smoothie in town:

Matcha Green Tea and Mango Smoothie

 Green Tea and Mango Smoothie Recipe Ingredients

(excuse that shitty instagram filter I had no other photos!)

Now I don't even know if mango are in season at the moment, probably not. But I found some frozen mango pieces at the supermarket this week and decided to give them a try. They probably are more suited than fresh mango for a smoothie actually, and much quicker. I'm all about efficiency in my smoothie making so frozen mangoes are a winner.

Here's the recipe,  I added orange and lemon to this recipe, but it turned out great with mango/banana aswell.

Magic Matcha Mango Smoothie with Orange, Lemon and Strawberry Ice:

Prep time: 2 minutes for the smoothie. The strawberry ice cubes I made from an earlier creation but never used them.

Ingredients/Method - Mango Smoothie

  • 150g frozen mango pieces
  • 1/2 a navel orange
  • Squeeze of lemon
  • 1/2 cup of milk (yes I used cows milk, oh the horror!)
  • 1Tsp matcha powder - dissolved in warm water
  • Couple of ice cubes

I should stop writing the method for my smoothie recipes. You're smart enough I'm sure, just put it in the blender.

Strawberry Ice Cubes - Ingredients / Method:

These were from a previous recipe, and were just leftovers, from memory it was just:

  • 1/2 cup strawberries - washed and green bits removed
  • Bunch of ice cubes
  • Splash of water

Just blend it until you have a red, icy thick textured liquid and put it in an ice tray. Oh yeah you will have to freeze them too.

The end result:

Heres a free tip: if you drink it slowly, the ice cubes will melt into the smoothie giving it a whole other dimension of wonder and strawberry mango goodness. Oh my! 

Enjoy.

If you make one let me know and get out your #kenkotea hashtags.

I also post on facebook and tweet amazing things.
