Recipe: Matcha Blueberry Smoothie

Everything in this smoothie is good for you!

There are so many great-tasting reasons to try it, from the metabolism-boosting green tea to the gut-healing cultured coconut milk. Then there’s avocado and blueberries, superfoods that are packed with fiber and omega-3s.

And, boy, is it pretty! If you’re looking for a vegan brunch recipe that will wow your friends and family, you found it.

(If you don’t want to go the extra trouble of making both layers, you can put all the ingredients in the blender at once – it will taste just as fantastic.)

Matcha Blueberry Smoothies join Quinoa Fusilli with Cherry Tomatoes, Garlic, Basil, and Olive Oil; Lentil Nut Burgers with Cilantro Vinaigrette; and Roasted Sweet Potato Salad in our Virgin Vegan menu.
