Ways to Improve Your Matcha Smoothie

While this matcha smoothie tastes great as it is, there are a few things you can add to make it even better. Here are a few extra ingredients you might want to consider to make your matcha smoothie even better.

Add Greens

Consider incorporating a handful of fresh spinach or kale for an extra boost of nutrients. The mild taste of spinach won't overpower the fruity flavors but will add more vitamins and minerals.

Protein Boost

Drinking your matcha smoothie before the gym? Include a scoop of protein powder or add a tablespoon of nut butter (such as almond or peanut butter) to increase the protein content. This can make the smoothie more satiating and perfect as a post-workout snack.

Superfood Additions

Experiment with superfoods like chia seeds, flaxseeds, or hemp seeds to introduce additional fiber, omega-3 fatty acids, and antioxidants. Matcha is healthy on it’s own, but it’s even healthier when you add other superfoods to it.

Speaking of the health benefits, matcha is a nutrient powerhouse in its own right. If you want to read the complete list of benefits, you can check out this guide here 👉 What do Scientists say about Matcha Benefits? Find Out Here

Citrus Zest

Grate a bit of citrus zest (lemon or lime) into the matcha smoothie to brighten up the flavors and add a refreshing twist. When you add citrus to matcha, it tends to enhance the acidity and make it more refreshing.

Coconut Flakes

If you want to really take your matcha smoothie to the next level, you can garnish the top with a sprinkle of unsweetened coconut flakes for added texture and a tropical touch.


Consider a pinch of cinnamon or ginger for an extra layer of warmth and flavor. This may sound a bit crazy but these spices can complement the matcha and pineapple beautifully.

Cinnamon and ginger aren't the only spices that work well with matcha, you can also try turmeric! This recipe combines these two superfoods perfectly 👉 Matcha Turmeric Latte: A Harmony of Wellness and Flavor

Hydration Boost

Instead of regular milk, try using coconut water for a hydrating and lighter option. It can make the matcha smoothie taste even more refreshing and transport your taste buds to a tropical beach.

Frozen Greens Ice Cubes

You can freeze some kale or spinach with water in ice cube trays. Use these frozen green cubes instead of regular ice cubes for an added nutritional punch and it can also make your matcha smoothie take less time in the morning.

Avocado Creaminess

If you want an even creamier texture in your matcha smoothie, add a few slices of ripe avocado. This not only enhances the consistency but also brings healthy fats to the mix.

Experiment with Sweeteners

One way to completely change the flavor of this matcha smoothie is to simply switch the sweetener you use. Test different natural sweeteners like agave syrup, date syrup, or stevia to find the one that best suits your taste preferences.

How to Save Time on This Recipe

This matcha smoothie is very easy and quick to make, but when it comes to those busy mornings, every minute counts. Here are a few ways you can save time on your morning matcha smoothie.

Meal Prep

While you’ll want to make sure your daily matcha smoothie is freshly made, there are a few things you can try to “meal prep” this recipe. Keep the frozen pineapple measured out in a bag so you can quickly throw it into the blender in the morning.

You may also want to combine the milk, yogurt, sweetener and even matcha together so you don’t have to do any measuring.

Freeze the banana

One the banana gets ripe, you can freeze it and lock in the flavor. Ripe bananas might only last a couple days in your fruit bowl but they can last for weeks in the freezer. You can also combine it with the pineapple for an easy meal prep.

Not only does this save time, but it ensures that you always have a ripe banana on hand. No matter how you time out your banana buying, you may find that you always go a few days out of the week without any ripe ones!
