I crave smoothies. I have 2 to 3 a day. Did I mention I'm forming a support group? This smoothie is one of my favorites. It's souped up with high antioxidant matcha (green tea powder). This one is made with yogurt, too -- a wonderful probiotic food that has been shown in studies to help with fat burning. Oh, and if you expect you've been unintentionally overdosing on smoothies, get help.


  • 2 cups ice
  • 4 cups cubed seedless watermelon
  • 1 cup nonfat Greek yogurt, such as 0% Fage Total
  • 1/4 fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 cup agave nectar
  • 1 cup chopped fresh pineapple
  • 2 teaspoons unsweetened matcha green tea powder
  • Cooking Directions

    Toss all ingredients into the blender and blend for five minutes to increase volume.

    Serve in glasses with a straw.
