Green Tea (Matcha) Red Bean Smoothie | Simple Recipe
Green Tea (Matcha) & Red Beans are two of my favorite ingredients. When I put them together in this recipe, they make a deliciously addictive matcha red bean smoothie drink.
If you have the time, you could always make your own homemade red bean paste. If not, you can also use a store bought can (or package) of red beans (aka Adzuki beans) from your local Asian supermarket. There are many textures of the pre-made red bean paste: from smooth to coarse - I prefer the coarse texture to give the drink some rustic personality. ; )
Note: I'm using a Vitamix personal sized blender in this video. Some advice on blenders: after owning both a Blendtec and NutriBullet, I can say the Vitamix is my favorite to use because it blends ice the best for smoothies + it's got a small kitchen countertop footprint.
