A mighty matcha green tea smoothie with a secret source of protein. Spinach, banana, matcha powder and white pea beans are blended together for a thick and creamy antioxidant-rich smoothie.


  • 1 cup white pea beans (navy beans), drained and rinsed (canned) (250 mL)
  • 1 cup fresh spinach (250 mL)
  • 1 cup orange juice (250 mL)
  • 1 bananas, medium, frozen, sliced
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract (5 mL)
  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt (125 mL)
  • 1 tbsp matcha green tea powder (15 mL)
  • 24 ice cubes


Pour beans into a colander or strainer, rinse with cold water. Transfer beans to blender; add all remaining ingredients and blend until smooth, stopping to scrape down the sides as needed.

Divide between 4 glasses and serve immediately.


Tip: For added sweetness, try using vanilla Greek yogurt or add one tablespoon of maple syrup.
