Today's blog post is brought to you by cupofcatherine.com. Catherine is kind of a rockstar when it comes to attainable healthy and balanced lifestyle. We love this recipe for a matcha mint smoothie...and how perfect for St. Patty's! You can also make the recipe vegan by using dairy free yogurt. Enjoy!

From Catherine: 

This easy, healthy green matcha mint smoothie is the perfect, natural green beverage for St. Patrick’s Day. It’s alcohol-free, so you can enjoy it at breakfast or any time of the day!

Since I am trying to abstain from alcohol during Lent, I will not be partaking in any green beer this year.

Truth be told, I prefer my beer unadulterated (no green dye for me!), but that doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy naturally green foods and beverages.

Lucky for me (and you!), this green beverage is one you can drink ANY time of day because it’s alcohol-free and full of all the good, healthy things.

This smoothie is similar to one I made last year, except I omitted the protein powder for a more natural source of protein—Greek yogurt.

Protein powder has its place (my favorite is Sunwarrior), but I have long been a fan of bulking up my smoothies with less processed sources of protein.

HEALTHY GREEN MATCHA MINT SMOOTHIE

yields one small serving

Ingredients

  • 1/2 frozen banana
  • 1/4 frozen zucchini
  • 1/3 cup plan, vanilla, or honey-flavored Greek yogurt
  • 1 Tbsp matcha powder
  • 1/4 tsp mint extract
  • milk, to desired consistency

Directions

  • Add all ingredients into a high speed blender. Blend until well-mixed and desired consistency is achieved.
  • Pour in a glass and add any toppings you desire (I just drank mine the old-fashioned way). Enjoy!

Feel free to double the recipe if you’re craving a more meal-sized smoothie—this one is more like a snack or component to a larger breakfast.
