I discovered this match shake recipe by accident while blending a matcha shake, and realized I was out of ice! So I subbed some frozen watermelon and found this shake tasted better than ever! The pastel green color tricks you because the flavor is deliciously pure pink.

This shake has a sweet matcha flavor that is very pleasant. With the same texture as some of your favorite restaurant shakes, this matcha shake recipe is a tasty introduction of another super healthy ingredient, matcha! (See below for a listing of it’s many health benefits). We also tested this recipe with one of our FAVORITE new superfood blends, Green Dream by Philosophie! Watch us blend up this tasty shake recipe and have some fun!

Use a high speed blender, like a Blendtec or Vitamix for the best consistency, and join our community for more nutritious and healthy shakes and recipes! Share your rating with us if you try this one at home! 🙂

A long standing tradition of Japanese culture, matcha green tea is the highest quality powdered green tea availableMade from nutrient-rich young leaves, the tea is stemmed and steamed before it is ground up to make a very fine powder. It is then stored away from light and oxygen to preserve its brilliant green color and many antioxidant properties. The tea, consumed for over a millennium in the Far East, is now considered to be a very valuable whole food on the market.  Health benefits include:  

  • Is packed with antioxidantsincluding the powerful EGCg

  1. LOVE matcha. I put it in my smoothies, ice cream and when I bake. The health benefits are just a bonus.
