This creamy smoothie balances high-fiber carbohydrates from mango, spinach, banana, and oats with protein from silken tofu. Also starring is matcha green tea powder, giving the smoothie a deeper flavor and a boost of antioxidants to help fight inflammation.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 tsp matcha green tea powder
  • 2 cups frozen mango chunks
  • 1 medium ripe banana, frozen in chunks
  • 2 cups fresh baby spinach
  • 1/2 cup silken tofu
  • 1/4 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 tbsp fresh grated ginger

Preparation

  1. Add almond milk and matcha powder to the blender and pulse 3 times until combined.

  2. Add the rest of the ingredients to the blender and blend until smooth, about 30 seconds to a minute.

Variations and Substitutions

There are so many ways to tailor this recipe. If you love ginger, increase the amount in this recipe to 1 tablespoon or use 1/2 teaspoon powdered ginger instead. You can also swap kale for spinach for a slightly heartier "greens flavor." Or use soy milk instead of almond milk to add further boost the plant protein. And if you like a sweeter smoothie, swap an additional 1/2 banana in place of the oats.

Not a fan of tofu? Substitute an equal amount of plain low-fat yogurt or use a scoop of unflavored protein powder instead. Don't have matcha powder on hand or watching your caffeine intake? The smoothie will still be delicious and nutritionally balanced without it so you can leave the matcha powder out.

Cooking and Serving Tips

  • If you're not using a high-powered blender, start with the liquid and blend each ingredient in, one at a time, until smooth.
  • If your matcha clumps, whisk it in one tablespoon of warm water until smooth before adding to the blender.
  • When freezing bananas, freeze a single sliced banana in a sandwich bag. This way you know that it is one banana (rather than having to guess if you've added several sliced bananas to one bag).
