Do you have an awesome Blendtec blender? Nope? Neither do I. That's why I'm trying to win one right now! The lovely ladies over at 5 Minutes for Mom have created a great contest and a Blendtec blender is the grand prize.
Contestants were sent some amazing Matcha Green Tea Latte powder mixes to try out while creating a unique smoothie recipe. The packets actually reminded me of a hot cocoa packet. To make my own unique smoothie, I put all of the ingredients in my (not a Blendtec) blender, then added the dry mix ingredients of the Matcha Green Tea Latte packet. It was really easy and YUMMY! I tried a lot of different combinations, but this is the one I liked the best:
Best of the Summertime Fruit Smoothie
1/2 cup fresh blueberries
1 peach (pitted)
1 cup nonfat plain yogurt
3 Tablespoons Matcha Green Tea Latte Powder
12 ounces apple juice
I love visiting my local coffee shop called Brewed Awakenings (it's actually a local chain and I LOVE that clever name) for blended drinks, but making smoothies at home is also a lot of fun!

We grow them in our backyard.
Doesn't the Mocafe Matcha Green Tea packet resemble a hot cocoa packet?
