There was a time after I was afraid of green-colored smoothies…however now? Inexperienced smoothies are a few of my favorites: from my inexperienced mango superfood smoothie to the anti-inflammatory pineapple turmeric smoothie to this matcha avocado smoothie, I like all of them.
mangoes– present pure sweetness and physique to the smoothie; swap for peaches should you can’t discover mangoes
avocado– add a thick, creamy texture to the smoothie; should you can’t discover pre-frozen avocados, you possibly can freeze your personal!
mixing liquid– my go-to’s are unsweetened almond milk or oat milk, however you should use any nut or dairy milk
matcha powder– since we’re not making matcha lattes and it’s extra of a background taste, we don’t must splurge on a ceremonial grade matcha powder. I’m nonetheless working by means of my Costco-purchased matcha powder
extras– we’re additionally including in some vanilla to provide the smoothie a ‘matcha latte’ type of taste, in addition to chia seeds for added vitamin
For this recipe, you possibly can throw the substances into the blender in any order. Should you’d like so as to add leafy greens, I like to recommend mixing them with a number of the mixing liquid earlier than including the opposite substances (this helps the smoothie get utterly blended, even with an affordable blender).

¼ cup oatmeal (provides it some endurance)
½ scoop of protein powder (additionally provides it some endurance)
3 oz silken tofu
You’ll be able to assemble all substances apart from the mixing liquid forward for meal prep as ‘smoothie packs’. This manner, while you’re able to mix you don’t must measure something besides on your mixing liquid: dump it into the blender and mix away!
Place the frozen mango within the backside of a jar, silicone or plastic freezer bag.
Add the avocado, then the matcha, chia seeds and vanilla extract.
Place into the freezer ASAP.
To mix, dump all the pieces into the blender, if something is caught to the jar add mixing liquid to the jar, sit for 30 seconds, then shake it up and dump into the blender.
Mix and revel in!
How do I freeze avocados?
Minimize avocado into chunks and unfold out on a baking sheet. Pop into the freezer ASAP so it doesn’t brown. Freeze for 1-2 hours, then switch to a silicone bag. Freeze for as much as 3 months.
Frozen avocado shouldn’t be nice for guacamole or avocado toast, nevertheless it blends nice right into a smoothie!
Are you able to style the avocado?
You actually can’t…it blends utterly into the smoothie and all you possibly can style is the sweetness from the mango, slight vanilla taste in addition to the matcha. You’ll discover your smoothie is further creamy!
