Matcha is a powdered green tea that’s high in antioxidants; you’ll find it in most large natural grocery stores or Asian markets. If you can’t find matcha, steep 4 green tea bags in 1⁄2 cup boiling water for 3 minutes. Remove tea bags and let liquid cool, then add tea to smoothie; reduce rice milk by 1⁄2  cup.



  • 3 cups baby spinach
  • 2 cups rice milk
  • 1 medium avocado, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 1/2 cup green grapes
  • 2 Tbs. matcha green tea
  • 2 Tbs. grated fresh ginger
  • 1 Tbs. agave nectar, optional


Blend all ingredients in blender until smooth.
