I had no idea what matcha green tea was until I started seeing it all over my pinterest feed. It looked pretty good to me!
So I ordered some with my usual supplement order and I tell you I’ve got some plans for this stuff!
It’s pretty damn awesome and adds a wonderful flavor and richness to smoothies.
I’m always a fan of green smoothies and the addition of matcha green tea makes it something special!
So this matcha green tea smoothie contains all the goodness of a regular green smoothie with the added green tea flavor (subtle – but lovely) and of course all the good antioxidants that green tea contains.
It also has a little caffeine.
I’m quite caffeine sensitive so I kept this pretty mild.
I like how it adds a subtle hint of green tea flavor to the smoothie without being overpowering. If you want more of a caffeine boost though, you could easily add more matcha green tea powder to the recipe.
This is GREAT for breakfast – doing double duty as your caffeine shot for the day as well as your super healthful infusion of fruit and veggie goodness to power you up for the day ahead!
So I’m a fan – I think you will be too!
This matcha green tea smoothie is fruit and veggie packed, cold, double-thick, smooth, creamy and utterly delicious!
It’s also ready in 10 minutes! How much better can it get?
