Matcha Banana Nice Cream

Matcha and spirulina are the secret ingredients in this bowl that give it a vibrant color and unique flavor.

Matcha Banana Nice Cream


  • ¾ cup (180 ml) almond milk
  • 1 Tablespoon matcha green tea powder
  • 1½ teaspoon spirulina, optional
  • 1½ cups (45 g) baby spinach
  • ¾ pound (340 g) frozen bananas
  • ¾ pound (340 g) frozen mango chunks


  1. Place all ingredients into the Vitamix container in the order listed and secure the lid.
  2. Start the blender on its lowest speed, then quickly increase to its highest speed. Blend for 45–60 seconds, using the tamper to press ingredients toward the blades.
  3. In about 45–60 seconds, the sound of the motor will change and four mounds should form. Stop the machine. Do not over mix or melting will occur. Serve immediately.
