This Matcha Ginger Green Smoothie is quick and easy to make, super fresh and delicious, and full of feel-good ingredients that’ll get your day off to a strong start.
As of today, we have less than 6 weeks to go until our wedding! ? ? ?
I’m getting so excited!! And — gotta be honest — I’m also suddenly starting to feel extra motivated to look and feel my best in this lovely wedding dress I’m going to be wearing. (In case you missed it, I shared a little peek of it in Friday’s post Friday’s post.) . Don’t worry, I’m totally not into crazy crash bridal diets or anything. But I am feeling motivated to try and eat really well over these next few weeks so that I can feel as strong and healthy and present as possible on our big day. (And be in good shape to dance the night away at our reception!)
So in hopes of getting in more greens before the wedding, I’m committing to try and start my days with a green smoothie every morning leading up to the wedding. I mean, hopefully the habit will stick long after. But it seems like a good little challenge at least for 7 weeks. ?? I already have a handful of green smoothie recipes here on the site, and usually just improvise new ones with whatever ingredients I have on hand each day. But if any of you have any awesome recipes that you recommend, hit me up! I’d love to try ’em!
This one above happens to be one of my recent favorites. It’s made with organic matcha green tea powder, which I love because it provides an extra energy boost in the morning (plus all of those good-for-you green tea nutrients). Then it’s loaded up with fresh orange and ginger (two of my favorite classic tea flavors), fresh spinach (greens!), chia seeds (or whatever other add-ins you love), and lots of coconut water (which includes lots of natural electrolytes). Super delicious, and super easy to make. I think you’re going to love it!
To make the smoothie, simply toss everything in a blender…
…and puree until smooth.
Then feel free to garnish with your favorite smoothie “sprinkles” (chia, hemp seeds, bee pollen, you name it)…and enjoy!
It’s super simple, super delicious, and overflowing of feel-good ingredients to get your day off to a good start.
I love green tea and matcha recipes! I’m all for matcha – except matcha flavoured desserts – but this is an excellent new way to add more of it to my diet!
Thanks, Charmaine, we hope you enjoy this one!
i bought matcha powder ages ago but have honestly been too afraid to try it! i think this will be the recipe that gets me over my fear…paired with ginger & sweet fruit, i bet it’s delicious. also, congratulations on the upcoming big day!! i read you & your fiance’s story last week when you posted your life update, & how sweet. not to be cliché, but enjoy this special time. it goes by too quickly to get caught up in unnecessary stress! xx
Yes, it’s SO yummy, and we hope you enjoy it!

Hi Ali! Such an exciting time for you! Great excuse to get motivated and get healthy. Love your idea to have a green smoothie in the mornings. I have some matcha tea powder that I’ve been playing with. I hadn’t thought of mixing it up with some spinach and ginger, that sounds really yummy. Thanks for the idea! good luck, these are happy days :)) hugs,
Thank you, Bita, we hope you enjoy the smoothie! :)
Gimme gimme gimme (I legit just wrote that without any thought to the blog name LOL)
I love gingery green juices, my cousin runs a juice bar at festivals and campsites and her ginger goodness juice is a lifeline when you’re feeling sluggish from too much dancing/junk food!
Haha! If you love ginger, we think you will definitely love this smoothie – we hope you can give it a try soon! :)
I made this today with cara cara oranges and it was delicious. I also added some organic apple juice for a little bit of sweetness. So good.
We’re so glad you enjoyed it, Samantha — thanks for giving it a try! :)
I loved this Green Smoothie idea, great recipe. By the way, I just wanted to tell you congrats on your wedding and hope everything goes smoothly. Perfect smoothie to start off your day too.
Thanks, we hope you can give this smoothie a try sometime! ;)
Perfect smoothie recipe there :) I workout 4 times a week and smoothies are part of my diet. I also add superfood powder to make it more healthier.
Thank you so much, Bricks, — we’re happy you enjoy it!
