Matcha Mango Smoothies

I’m not sure if you all noticed, but Jack made his 3rd post a few weeks back. (Check out his Rooberry Smoothie, if you missed it). This guy, I tell you, is crazy about smoothies. If he’s the smoothie king around here, then I am the matcha mistress. But both together? Well that’s just a match(a) made in heaven. (I know, bad pun, I just couldn’t help myself…)

I love using mango in smoothies – it’s sweet and refreshing, it also works as a nice thickener without having to use bananas, yogurt or nuts. I know there are a lot of smoothie-loving-banana-haters out there, so this one’s for you. (Although a banana is a delicious addition here if you want yours a little bit creamier).

    YAY for banana free smoothies! Yummy!

  2. Yum- I’m drooling over the mango matcha combo!

    Also – my husband is the smoothie king around our house too and I’m always throwing matcha into everything!

  3. I love mango in smoothies too and this looks like a great combo with matcha! I should really get on the matcha bandwagon. 😉

    I just made this smoothie for breakfast and it was super delicious! However, I made it with two teaspoons of matcha powder instead of two tablespoons. Otherwise it would have been too bitter for me. Thanks for sharing, Jeanine!

  6. I bet the mango IS a fantastic addition. I try to drink matcha in the afternoon for a steady energy boost as well as the many other health benefits matcha provides, but sometimes it can get a little repetitive. But, look what you did! You provided a new way to get my little boost with a big punch of vitamins C and A! Thanks so much!

    Thanks for the inspiration! This was my breakfast today and it was delicious 😀 I found good quality matcha powder from the Korean market (reasonably priced) and it tasted great! I love the combo of matcha and mango like others commented.
