This naturally sweet matcha smoothie is a healthy, antioxidant-filled breakfast or great afternoon pick-me-up.

Matcha is very finely ground, high quality, green tea powder. It’s sweeter than steeped green tea and is super healthy because all of those amazing green tea antioxidants are more concentrated.

Energizing Matcha Green Tea Smoothie

Ingredients

  • 1 cup of unsweetened almond milk (or other non-dairy milk)

  • 1 scoop of vanilla protein powder (your choice, no added sugar)

  • 1-2 tsp matcha green tea powder (start with less if you’re new to matcha - it packs a kick!)

  • 1 frozen banana

  • Ice cubes (optional)

  • 1 large handful of spinach or kale (optional, but recommended)

Combine all ingredients into a blender and blend until desired smoothness is achieved. Sip and enjoy!
