Author Notes: The thick smoothie brings together frozen pineapple, frozen banana, coconut milk, matcha powder and honey. It's garnished with a simple homemade honey-based granola, fresh fruit, cocoa nibs and a generous drizzle of honey. While the cocoa nibs echo some of the soft bitter qualities of the green tea, their fruitiness brightens the experience and the honey sweetness ties everything together. Chase the Flavors
