I realize looking at these photos that this smoothie would have been a perfect drink for St. Patrick’s Day! What a lovely green color. But such is the life of a food blogger, trying to keep up with holidays, trends and other bloggers, while they just pass me by…. =) So instead of stressing about keeping up, I just post what I want when I feel like it. I hope that works for all of you.

This smoothie is one I’ve been wanting to make for quite some time. The first time I had a green tea smoothie was when I was living in Hawaii and I ordered the Matcha Green Tea Smoothie from Jamba Juice…and yum. I was hooked. From there, I tried the Green Tea Frappucino at Starbucks and double yum! It was official. I love matcha green tea. And so this smoothie was born. I also love the fact it has turmeric in it. Turmeric is actually a root, ground into a powder, and it has SO many health benefits. Since the benefits are vast and way too much to list in this post, I suggest checking out this incredible article that highlights all of the amazing wonders of turmeric…http://www.well-beingsecrets.com/turmeric-benefits/.

To make this smoothie, all you need is a good blender. Add in all the ingredients, blend it up, and you have yourself an amazingly refreshing breakfast or healthy snack.

  • Hello Cristin, I found your recipe when looking for new Green Tea smoothie recipes and really like the use of Turmeric(which is one my my favorite herbs). I referenced your recipe in a post if that is OK.
