  • 1 green tea bags
  • 3/4 cup boiling water
  • 1 cup ruby red grapefruit (peeled and segmented)
  • 1 green apples (cored and quartered)
  • 1 cup baby spinach (fresh)

  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1 teaspoon matcha green tea powder


  1. 1To brew the green tea, steep the tea bag in the boiling water for 30 seconds, no longer or the tea will develop bitterness. Transfer to a sealed jar in the fridge to chill.
  2. 2Pour the chilled tea and all of the other ingredients (including any boosters) into the blender jar of the KitchenAid® Pro Line® Series Blender.
