Matcha Avocado Smoothie

This recipe makes exactly the amount of this 1 mug

Preparation and cooking time: 5 minutes

Serves 1-2


1. 1 tsp matcha green tea powder
2. 1/2 avocado
3. 2 cups (500 ml) of fresh skimmed milk (1 cup would be too little)
4. 3 chopped dried dates
5. 1 tsp flax seeds (optional)


Mix together and blend for a few seconds until smooth. Pour into glass and serve.

Nutritional value:

Green tea is known to be very good for health due to its antioxidant properties, and green tea crushed into powder has even higher antioxidants than green tea. But it contains caffeine too unfortunately.

Additional Information:

I am craving for matcha milk shake in Singapore, thus I decided to make this smoothie. Avocado does a fantastic job at making the milk shake creamy without over-powering the matcha flavor. I sometimes add 1 tablespoon of condensed milk, instead of dates, to sweeten it, if I crave for the taste of condensed milk.

Our Little FECS (9Y10M18D) also loves matcha smoothie, although I try to keep it to a minimum due to the caffeine in matcha.
