Matcha Green Tea Smoothie

FullSizeRender-1

I’m going to continue showing matcha green tea some love with my second matcha recipe of the week! This smoothie is full of other great ingredients too, including the protein filled spirulina and chlorophyll packed wheat grass.

Matcha is 10 times more beneficial than green tea in terms of its nutritional value and antioxidant content. It is made of straight, stoneground tea leaves, so you are consuming the entire leaf. The tea leaves are grown in the shade, which results in increased chlorophyll levels, turns the leaves a darker shade of green, and causes the production of amino acids. These altered growing conditions result in matcha having a sweeter taste than normal green tea.

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 cups of almond milk
  • 1 heaping tbsp of matcha green tea
  • 1 banana
  • 1 tbsp spirulina
  • 1 scoop of wheat grass powder
  • 1 scoop of vanilla Vega One protein powder
