Healthy Banana Matcha Smoothie

A Banana Matcha Smoothie is a delicious blend of ripe banana, matcha green tea powder, Greek yogurt and milk.

This 4-ingredient breakfast smoothie recipe is as healthy as it is delicious. Plus, the caffeinated matcha gives you a gentle boost of energy to get your day going.

Best of all, this nutritious matcha smoothie recipe is a rich source of antioxidants, protein, calcium and potassium. The banana adds a little fiber, too.

Why You’ll Love this Smoothie

Healthy – What I love about this banana matcha smoothie is that the recipe uses only whole, natural ingredients. You get all the health benefits from the matcha, banana, and unsweetened Greek yogurt, without any added sugar.

Naturally Creamy and Sweet – Extra ripe bananas are what make this smoothie so sweet and creamy. If you’ve got bananas that aren’t looking great (black on the peels), chop them into chunks and save them in the freezer. They’re ideal for smoothies!

Quick and Easy Breakfast Smoothie – A banana matcha smoothie is a great way to start the day. It only takes a few minutes to blend together and is easy to take with you on-the-go.

This matcha smoothie is packed with protein to keep you feeling full. It does not contain any added sugar, and to top it off, the matcha green tea makes it caffeinated.

A single serving of this banana matcha smoothie has 29 grams protein, 60 milligrams caffeine and 0 grams added sugar, when prepared according to the recipe.

Banana Matcha Smoothie Recipe

The only equipment needed to make homemade smoothies is a blender.

For quick breakfast smoothies, I love my Ninja Pro personal blender. It’s compact for easy clean up, and powerful enough to blend frozen fruit, ice and solids!

Ingredients

  • Frozen Ripe Banana
  • Matcha Powder
  • Plain Greek Yogurt
  • Milk
  • Sweetener (optional)

Frozen Banana – Ripe and over-ripe bananas are extra sweet and perfect for smoothies. Instead of throwing them out, freeze them into chunks for your next smoothie. Blending frozen bananas into smoothies gives them a nice creamy texture.

Matcha Powder – There’s no need for the most expensive matcha in a smoothie like this, but I do suggest sticking with a bright green ceremonial or culinary grade, harvested from Japan. Encha matcha green tea powder is one of my favorites.

Greek Yogurt – Protein-filled Greek yogurt makes this smoothie filling and creamy. I use non-fat, plain Greek yogurt.

This strawberry banana chia seed smoothie recipe also has Greek yogurt blended into it.

Milk – Add a splash of milk to thin the smoothie into a drinkable consistency. Use your preferred milk. I go for 2% dairy.

Sweetener (optional) – A ripe banana provides all the sweetness this matcha smoothie needs. If you prefer it sweeter, however, just add your favorite sweetener to the blender with all the other ingredients. Good options are honey, agave, date syrup or sugar.

Step-by-Step Instructions

Detailed recipe and instructions are in recipe card at bottom of post.

1. Add smoothie ingredients to blender.

Add Greek yogurt, milk, matcha powder, optional sweetener and frozen banana to blender. Put them into the blender in the order your blender manufacturer recommends.

2. Blend until smooth and creamy.

Blend the smoothie until the banana is completely smooth and there are no lumps of matcha. Use the smoothie button, if your blender has one.

3. Garnish with banana slices and matcha powder.

Recipe Notes

  • If you don’t have frozen banana use a ripe banana and a few ice cubes. Only use ripe banana for this smoothie. Green bananas are too bitter.
  • Freeze over-ripe bananas to make smoothies later. For easier blending, slice bananas into one-inch chunks before freezing.
  • To change the smoothie’s consistency, add more milk to thin it out. To make it thicker, add more yogurt or use a Greek yogurt with a higher percent of milkfat.
  • For best blending, add the ingredients to the blender in the order recommended for your particular blender. For my Ninja personal blender, this means putting soft and liquid ingredients into the cup first, followed by powders and then solids.
  • For the best and most satisfying smoothie, drink immediately.

My Pick for Smoothie Blender

I love this Ninja blender. The personal size is compact, yet powerful. It has a auto smoothie button that you just press and let it do its thing. Plus, it comes with two to-go cups with spout lids.

Banana Matcha Smoothie Variations

Seeds – Add 1-2 tablespoons of flax seeds or chia seeds for healthy fats.

Protein – Want more protein for pre-workout or post-workout recovery? Add in some plain or vanilla protein powder.

Berries & Fruit – Add a few frozen strawberries for a classic strawberry banana smoothie. Or try mango and pineapple for tropical vibes. For my favorite Pina Colada Smoothie, toss some frozen pineapple chunks into the blender and use coconut milk.
