Makes 2 Servings

Ingredients:

  • Pineapple: 1 1⁄2 cups (fresh or frozen)
  • Fresh Mint: 1 1⁄2 teaspoons
  • Fresh Ginger: 1 teaspoon (peeled and grated)
  • Lime: 1⁄2 (zested and juiced)
  • Lemon: 1⁄2 (juiced)
  • Spinach: 2 1⁄2 cups
  • Water: 1 cup
  • Matcha Powder: 1 teaspoon

Directions:

  1. Prepare the Fruits and Veggies: If using fresh pineapple, wash, peel, core, and cut it into small pieces. If you’re using frozen pineapple, it can be used directly from the freezer or defrosted if preferred. Wash and zest the lime, and juice both the lime and lemon. Wash and pat dry the spinach and mint. Peel and grate the ginger.
  2. Blend to Perfection: Add the pineapple, fresh mint, grated ginger, lime zest and juice, lemon juice, spinach, water, and matcha powder to a blender. Blend everything together until smooth. For a colder drink, add ice directly to the blender.
  3. Adjust Consistency: If the smoothie is too thick, gradually add more water until you reach your desired consistency.
  4. Serve and Enjoy: Pour the smoothie into glasses, optionally over ice, and enjoy the refreshing and invigorating blend of flavors.

This Pineapple and Mint Matcha Smoothie not only tantalizes your taste buds but also provides a wholesome, nutrient-rich experience. Perfect for those who love a little adventure in their smoothies!
