Matcha Banana Smoothie • Cook Love Heal by Rachel Zierzow

Matcha Banana Smoothie

  • Author: Rachel Zierzow
  • Prep Time: 10 mins
  • Total Time: 10 mins
  • Yield: 2 servings 1x
  • Category: Breakfast
  • Diet: Vegan



1 cup unsweetened almond milk

2 tablespoons coconut cream (from the top of the can)

2 bananas (frozen, then sliced or fresh), or more for thicker smoothie

23 teaspoons matcha green tea powder (I use Rishi Barista Matcha)

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

dash Himalayan salt

12 teaspoons maple syrup 

1 cup crushed ice (optional; if using fresh bananas rather than frozen)


Place ingredients into high speed blender. If using frozen bananas, you will probably not need any additional ice. After blending, you can taste a spoonful and make adjustments according to taste. Add more matcha if you’d like a stronger green tea flavor, more maple syrup if you like it sweeter, more coconut cream to make it creamier, and more banana if you want it to be thicker.


Matcha powder can be very expensive as it is labor intensive to grow and process. I recommend getting an organic variety that is culinary-grade rather than the most expensive ceremonial-grade varieties. I recommend a good all-purpose, organic Japanese matcha powder that does not contain sugar like Barista Matcha from Rishi Tea.

We can help each other through these trying times

Now that we are all stuck at home I am creating more ways to help you connect to the community through healthy and delicious food. Every Wednesday at noon I am doing a Facebook Live show featuring cooking demos, tips and guest chefs from around the country. You can find that on my personal facebook page   

I also just started a low-cost subscription called Cooking Together to help people stay healthy while we all work to get through these challenging times. One of the most important things to me is community, so more than ever I want to focus on the community side of Cook Love Heal. Find out more about it here.

Join me in the Cook Love Heal Community

Just like before this started, when you join the Cook Love Heal Community I’ll send you my Natural Health Starter Kit for free, along with regular recipes & tips every week.

We’re all in this together. Let’s help each other build a better future
