This ultra creamy and refreshing smoothie completely masks the greens and matcha. It is slightly sweet, full of citrus flavor and has a vibrant green color. It will truly awaken you! I think it is the most delicious way to cram in loads of nutrients into one glass.


Units Scale
  • 4 pitted dates (soaked for best results)
  • 1/4 avocado
  • 4 raw brazil nuts (or sub 2 tablespoons raw cashews)
  • 1/2-1 teaspoon matcha (depending on how strong you want it)
  • 3 tablespoon hemp seeds
  • 2 large handfuls of spinach or kale
  • 1 extra large frozen orange (or two small frozen oranges)*
  • 1 1/4 cup unsweetened, plain non-dairy milk (I use almond milk)


  1. Add all ingredients to a high speed blender in the order listed above (dates in first at the bottom and non-dairy milk last). Puree until smooth and creamy.
  2. Pour into two glasses and serve immediately.


* To freeze the orange, slice off just the outer rind (leave the white pith). Chop the orange into 6-8 chunks and place on a flat surface (such as a small baking sheet) lined with parchment paper or wax paper. When placing on the flat surface, do not allow the orange chunks to touch or they will freeze together. Place in the freezer until frozen solid. I typically do this the night before and make my smoothie the following morning.
