Matcha and avocado are both powerhouses of nutrients making this smoothie ideal to start the day. Adding a little vanilla protein powder adds not only additional protein but a subtle sweet vanilla flavor.

The smoothie tasted very little of matcha and had too much of a protein powder taste for me. If I made it again I would use less protein powder and more matcha with perhaps some greek yogurt for more protein. Read More

I enjoyed this smoothie but like others mentioned, I had to reverse the amounts of two ingredients. More match powder (used 3 tblsp per my container) and 1/2 scoop of vanilla protein powder. I used vanilla unsweetened almond coconut milk. I found it needed more sweetening so I added a little honey; still not sweet enough so added some agave nectar. Very good with the changes. Read More
