I really liked this. I did omit the ice and made half recipe. I have also used maple syrup instead of honey and it worked well too. A nice nourishing breakfast.
I loved this smoothie. It's my second time using matcha. My first time was in a martini and it was not that great. In the smoothie, it's perfect with the banana and honey. I got two glass with this serving. Thanks Brenda :) Made for All you can cook buffet
Although minor, I did make a few changes, when preparing this ~ I was generous with the tea powder, used a large yallow-ripe (rather than brown-ripe) banana that had been sliced & frozen & although I did leave out the ice cubes, it still had a frosty chill! Very, very nice smoothie, & I appreciate you sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed while in Asia with ZWT6]
