There are many green smoothies that produce a healthy beverage far better for consumers than the usual milkshake or protein drink. However, in the category of healthy smoothies, none are as exotic as this green-colored drink.

Developed by NYC pastry chef Jen Yee, the Coconut Matcha Smoothie is one of the many beverage confections Yee makes for the Lafayette Grande Café and Bakery. Utilizing the main ingredient found in green tea, Yee makes this drink with 2 tablespoons of matcha powder as well as agave nectar, coconut milk and ice. With the use of coconut milk opposed to cow's milk, this smoothie is also vegan-friendly unlike usual green smoothies.

Consumers can now make this smoothie at home after following the short list of instructions posted on the Food Republic website.
