This Creamy Matcha Vanilla Milkshake has a rich and silky smooth texture plus a huge boost of nutrition thanks to the anti-inflammatory and naturally energizing matcha green tea powder it contains. It’s also free of added sugar and vegan-friendly!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup of unsweetened raw plant based milk of choice (almond is a great choice)
  • ½ cup of ice cubes (or frozen almond milk cubes)
  • 5-6 ounces (about ¾ cup) of your favorite unsweetened, plain plant based yogurt (RFR tip - find raw coconut yogurt if possible!)
  • ¼ cup frozen pineapple cubes
  • ½ tsp. matcha green tea powder
  • ⅛ tsp. vanilla bean powder (or you can use ½ tsp. alcohol-free vanilla extract)
  • ¼ tsp. pure stevia extract (or liquid)

Instructions

  1. Add all the ingredients in the order listed to your blender (a high-speed blender or Nutribullet works great here!) and blend on low, then progress to high.
  2. Serve immediately, or freeze for 30 minutes to make it even colder. This milkshake also goes great in a pre-frozen glass if you want to make it even better.

Notes

If you want to boost the protein, feel free to add ½ scoop of your favorite vanilla-flavored protein powder. If you don't like stevia, feel free to use whatever sweetening option you enjoy. To make this thicker, add 1 tbsp. chia seeds before blending.
