Whipped Matcha Fruit Smoothies


Taste the rainbow with this whipped, fruity version of a matcha latte. Just blend your preferred nondairy milk with frozen fruit for the base, then top with a whipped matcha foam that uses aquafaba--the liquid from a can of chickpeas--to make the beverage completely vegan. (The drink also works very well with cow's milk if you don't mind it not being vegan.) A pinch of sugar subtly enhances the matcha's bitterness, but feel free to add more to your taste.

Whipped Matcha Fruit Smoothies
Prep Time:
10 mins
Total Time:
10 mins
12 oz.


  • ¾ cup cold unsweetened nondairy milk, such as almond, oat and/or coconut, or cow's milk

  • ½ cup frozen fruit, such as blueberries, raspberries or mango chunks

  • 1 teaspoon honey or agave (optional)

  • 1 teaspoon matcha powder

  • 1 teaspoon sugar

  • 2 tablespoons aquafaba (liquid from canned no-salt-added chickpeas)


  1. Place milk, frozen fruit and honey (or agave), if using, in a blender; puree until smooth. Pour into a 12-ounce glass.

  2. Whisk matcha and sugar together in a large bowl. Add aquafaba and beat with an electric mixer until the mixture transforms into a fluffy, foamy whipped topping, about 2 minutes. (Alternatively, you can use a stand mixer or a whisk: whisk as fast as you can.)

  3. Spoon the whipped matcha over the fruit milk and serve immediately.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
