Green Tea Banana-free Smoothie

I love that the name of this smoothie rhymes!

I also just love this smoothie, because well, what's not to love?

Once again, I have made a banana-free smoothie, as bananas are a fruit that cause me migraines. For more please check out my first VeganMofo smoothie post!

Green Tea Banana-free Smoothie

Makes about 5 cups


  • 2 cups brewed green tea, chilled slightly
  • 1 cup mango, frozen
  • 1 cup pineapple, frozen
  • 1 cup berries, frozen
  • 1/2 cup blueberries, frozen
  • 1 tbsp flax seeds/flax seed meal
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1/2 cup non-dairy milk (I used soy)

All ready to go!


1. Brew green tea, let it chill for a few minutes. (Today I used a mango green tea but when I made this smoothie yesterday I used a basic green tea, both were delicious!) 
2. Place all ingredients in blender. 
3. Blend until smooth and enjoy!

Breakfast is served!
Happy Friday everyone!


  1. Hi Helen! I never thought of using tea in a smoothie... interesting! :) I've also been meaning to try throwing in some chia seeds. This recipe uses some of my usual smoothie suspects, besides the bananas, so I'll have to check it out. :)

    1. Hello! I love tea and so I like to consume it any time I can!

      I also love me some chia seeds! Have you tried chia seed pudding? I love Gena's recipes for it on Choosing Raw! Find out more here!
