    Green tea in a smoothie?

    Shop Now
    Has anyone ever put green tea in a smoothie? If you have, did you put the leaves in, or did you steep it and add it as a liquid? I am trying to think of ways to give up my coffee/dairy/sugar combo, and I am looking for alternatives to a cup of hot tea.

    I was thinking blueberries, coconut milk, spinach and green tea might make a good combo?

    Thanks! =)

    yeah you are

    Baby if you time travel back far enough you can avoid that work because the dust won't be there. You're too pretty to be working that hard.

    Yes, I use matcha green tea powder in smoothies. You only need a teaspoon for an intense
    flavor. Delish! My co-op carries it in bulk.

    I am trying to avoid the flavor LOL I am not a big fan of green tea, but I drink it occasionally because I know it is good for me and I am not quite ready to give up my caffeine yet. Is the matcha powder caffeinated? I have a little one who is still up 2-3 times a night and doesn't take naps anymore LOL.

    I would steep it. Are there any ingredients you might want to put in your smoothie that would benefit from the warm liquid? I put chocolate and coffee in my smoothies, so I make hot coffee and pour it over the chocolate and cocoa in the blender. I also add coconut oil while it is still warm, as it is solid in my pantry this time of year.
