April Smoothie Challenge Week 4: Dessert Smoothies

We’re about to start Week 4 of the April Smoothie Challenge and round the challenge up with… dessert smoothies!

If you missed our first post where introduced our April Smoothie Challenge, check it out here. Then, go ahead and join our Facebook group where we’ll be sharing all our recipes and fun ideas to make tasty and healthy smoothies throughout the month of April.

We have a special theme for each week of the April Smoothie Challenge. The theme for the Week 1 was Perfect Recovery SmoothiesThe theme for the Week 2 of the April Smoothie Challenge was Veggie-Based Smoothies, and in Week 3 we made some delicious Breakfast Smoothies.

The theme for Week 4 of the April Smoothie Challenge is Dessert Smoothies.

Week 4: Dessert Smoothies

Just like we did in our last nutrition challenge, we thought it would be fun to dedicate the last week of our April Smoothie Challenge to desserts. Because we all have a sweet tooth, and we’re always looking for ways to satisfy it in a (relatively) healthy way.

These dessert smoothies are mostly made of healthy ingredients, but some of them are a bit more sweeter and more indulgent than other smoothies we’ve shared during this challenge. It’s totally okay to have treats once in a while!

Our Favorite Dessert Smoothies

Here are the three dessert smoothies that we’re loving right now. All recipes are meant for one person.

Matcha Banana Milkshake

  • 1/2 cup Greek or regular yogurt, unsweetened or vanilla
  • 1 tsp matcha powder
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond or other milk
  • 1 Tbsp maple syrup or other sweetener
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp crumbled coconut chips (optional)
  • Ice to taste


Blend together the banana, yogurt, matcha powder, milk, sweetener, and vanilla extract. Add in the ice until the smoothie reaches the consistency you like. Top with coconut chips.

If you like your matcha sweeter, add a little more sweetener. Enjoy!
