Chocolate Matcha Smoothie with chocolate matcha powder | Protein Packed Breakfast & Post-Gym Smoothie

The perfect breakfast protein smoothie with matcha and chocolate

Smoothies are great for mornings when you need something quick and portable. Adding a spoonful of chocolate matcha powder also puts a little pep in your step, while also giving you a huge dose of antioxidants as well as other necessary nutrients.

If you aren’t super familiar with matcha, or chocolate matcha powder, this is a fantastic way to get started! This smoothie could almost be mistaken for a milkshake… it’s just that delicious and creamy.

It’s simple to make and the only equipment needed is a good quality blender.

If you have the time, freeze your banana ahead of time and you’ll wind up with an even creamier, more ice-cream-like texture for your chocolate matcha smoothie. If you’re in a hurry, a regular banana will be just fine. But don’t skimp on the ice!

Ingredients you need for your chocolate matcha smoothie:

  • 1/2 tbsp chocolate matcha
  • 1 banana
  • 1 tbsp creamy peanut butter
  • 1 cup plain almond milk
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • Handful of ice cubes

3-Step directions to make your energizing chocolate matcha smoothie:

  1. Combine all ingredients in a blender. Blend until thoroughly combined
  2. Taste and adjust the ingredients as needed. ( & Be sure to add more ice if you prefer your shake on the thicker side!)
  3. Enjoy!

We all know that peanut butter and banana is a winning combo. But somewhat surprisingly, our chocolate matcha fits in absolutely perfect. Go ahead and give this smoothie a try and you’ll see what we mean!

Pro-tip, make an extra few servings and keep them in your freezer!

How to store you chocolate matcha smoothie:

  • Leftovers can be kept refrigerated in an airtight container for up to 1 day.
  • Freeze any extra in a freeze-safe jar or in ice cube trays for up to 3 months. When ready to use, let jar thaw overnight in the refrigerator. You can also toss pop frozen cubes out of the ice cube trays and throw them directly into the blender.
