matcha green tea smoothie

Matcha Green Tea is developing quite a following among groups as diverse as bodybuilders and organic food fans. The word “Matcha” (also spelled “maccha”} is given to a very finely milled or powdered green tea. According to an unsourced statement on Wikipedia; “Matcha is a fine-ground, powdered, high-quality green tea and not the same as tea powder or green tea powder” You can read the page here.

According to a Matcha Green Tea product page at Amazon, the tea delivers all day energy and superior antioxidant content. There is a lot more as well; this is the link:

Now, about the smoothie!

With all the nutritional benefits the Matcha green tea provides there isn’t a lot more you really need to do other than make it really good! And we think this recipe does that well.

In your favorite blender mix:

  • 1 cup milk (Almond, Rice, whole, 2%, etc.)
  • 1 Tbsp Matcha Green Tea Powder
  • 1 previously frozen banana (peel and slice BEFORE freezing!)
  • 1/2 cup chopped Mango
  • 1 Tbsp Chia seed

Everything goes in the blender at one time, mix it up and enjoy! Isn’t the rich green color wonderful?
