The perfect superfood summer smoothie made with tropical mango, sweet peaches and energy boosting matcha green tea.
Along with British strawberries and other summer berries, peaches and mangos always make it into my shopping basket during the summer months. I just love snacking on fresh mango, blitzing it up in a smoothie, serving it with Greek yoghurt or ice cream or, dare I say it sucking the flesh of the mango right from the skin – classy I know!
It’s tropical flavour just instantly reminds me of summer holidays and it goes so well with so many other flavours like the peaches used in this refreshing green smoothie.
- 1 cup ripe mango
- 1 ripe peach
- 1 cup baby spinach
- 2 tbsp full-fat Greek yoghurt
- 1/2 tsp matcha green tea powder
- 1/2 cup coconut water
- 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
Put all of the ingredients in a blender and blitz until smooth.
Serve in your favourite glass (or mug!) and enjoy!
Matcha green tea is a great thing to keep in your cupboards, it’s a powerful superfood full of fabulous antioxidants that are extremely beneficial for your health and well-being. You can bake with it, make ice cream and make matcha lattes (yum!). One of the easiest ways to get some matcha into your every day is to blend it into a smoothie and is how I like to use it at home.
This is the perfect wake me up breakfast smoothie, especially in the summer with that tropical mango flavour. Matcha is great at giving you a natural energy boost. In fact, I think I will be making more of these around 4pm too.
