Yep, Spring’s here, so I’m having a smoothie! How best to start the Smoothie Season? With my first ever matcha smoothie! Thank you, Sil, for your caramel peach matcha smoothie that got me thinking caramel banana matcha smoothie! About a cup of milk, one frozen banana, 2 scoops caramel matcha (and a little Splenda—sue me, it’s my afternoon treat!), and BAM! I’m an instant genius. Ok, I know there’s nothing earth shattering here, but just let me have my moment. I’ve only recently discovered the wonders of Red Leaf Tea’s flavored matcha, and now I can pair it with one of my favourite warm weather things, the frozen banana smoothie. Not to mention the fact it’s matcha: I’m buzzed and in a good mood!

WOOT! Glad you got to try this. If you cut up the banana and freeze it overnight, it helps make the smoothie extra thick and cold if you like yours that way :)

Ail: thanks for the tip! I need to try it!

Ash… so good..and this is just one matcha flavour! Think of how amazing and crazy these will be with multiple matcha flavours

mocha caramel peach cheesecake anyone? ha

Yes, it’s really great. Frozen bananas make just about any smoothie perfect in my mind, though! And I just had an epiphany: chocolate and peanut butter matcha smoothie (with said frozen banana, of course)! Peanut butter is one of the new matchas Red Leaf is bringing out, and that combination is one of my all-time faves. I could potentially have that without all the fat!

Bio

I’m an American-Australian living in Sydney with my Aussie husband, very active toddler girl and bouncing baby boy. I need tea to get me just to Lil’ Man’s morning nap, let alone the rest of the day. I’m a newbie to the world of pure teas (and loving every sip of it!), having delighted in flavored teas and blends for years. The hardest part seems to be getting the teas to Australia without exorbitant shipping costs.
