The Grinch Smoothie

The Grinch Smoothie

This Grinch gets its green color from a scoop of matcha, a green tea powder that’s green like the Dr. Seuss character himself and that’s been enjoyed for centuries.

(We spotted this delightful Grinch smoothie by Rachel-Elise Woods and our hearts grew three sizes!)

Thanks to creamy Vanilla Shakeology, banana, and coconut water, this will turn any Grinch sweet.

Holiday spices cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove provide even more Christmas cheer!
