1 small banana, cut in cubes
1 – 2 cups of Dole Frozen Fruit (strawberries, peaches, mango etc)
2 cups orange juice
2 bambo scoops of organic premium matcha
1 cup of your favorite yogurt (plain or flavored)

In your blender, blend slowly the matcha and orange juice or if you have a matcha bowl mix the matcha with a little water first to make it a smooth liquid. Add the yogurt, banana, frozen fruit. I like the Dole frozen fruit because it is real fruit in full sized cuts so you can see what you are adding, instead of canned mushy stuff. I start the blender on low, then progressively increase the speeds to medium and high. Let it blend until everything is nice and smooth.

The health benefits of matcha combined with the great flavors and health benefits of the fruits make this a great morning or mid afternoon pick me up. Matcha has 3 times the caffeine of coffee, but it is a level caffeine, not a caffeine that spikes like coffee caffeine does.

Let me know *your* favorite mid-day smoothie with matcha in our comments.
