What is matcha?

Matcha is a finely ground powder made from green tea leaves and is traditionally consumed in East Asia. It is said to be high in EGCG (epigallocatechin gallate), which is believed to have cancer-fighting effects on the body. Matcha has a bright, slightly bitter taste that I find is offset by adding natural sweetener like the pineapple in this recipe. It has mellow grassy notes, with just a touch of nuttiness. You can enjoy it in hot or cold teas, in lattes, or added to smoothies like this one.

Dairy-Free Yogurt

I like to use a Greek-style yogurt in this recipe because it’s full of protein and lends plenty of creaminess to the smoothie. Some dairy-free options to try are:

Fresh Mint

I’m using fresh mint in this smoothie because it adds lots of flavor and compliments the matcha and pineapple wonderfully. It adds tons of refreshing, bright notes to this and it also makes a beautiful garnish. Don’t be tempted to use frozen or prepackaged mint. It just won’t be as fresh and flavorful.
