It's officially spring, which means smoothie season is finally here. No longer do you have to put on an extra coat and huddle up next to the heater to enjoy your favorite icy blends. This recipe is simple to make and is so delicious - it's really more like a milkshake than a smoothie in terms of taste, but the ingredients are all plant-based and healthy, so it can be enjoyed any time of the day.
If you haven't yet had the pleasure of trying our new Pistachio Nut Butter
, run, don't walk, and grab a jar (or 5 - you'll be happy you did ...). This unique nut butter is like heaven in a jar - it's hard to believe that something with just 1 single ingredient could be so decadent and satisfying. Adding a heaping tablespoon to this recipe brings an incredible creaminess and sweet nutty flavor that works perfectly with the matcha, vanilla, frozen banana, and coconut water. We think it's safe to say this nut butter will elevate just about any smoothie recipe you make with it.
Since this shake contains matcha, it makes a great breakfast shake, especially for those days when you need a little extra pep in your step. Toss in some vanilla protein powder to transform it into the perfect pre or post-workout fuel.
We hope you love it!
