Matcha is bright green and if you can taste color, it tastes green too. It's a subtle flavor so a plain matcha latte isn't a big deal but I've found adding some honey really brightens the drink up. Matcha has some caffeine in it but isn't as acidic as coffee. Other benefits I've discovered from Googling matcha, it is full of antioxidants, naturally detoxifies your body and can help with focus/attention. Sign up me at about 2pm every day.
Usually green smoothies have spinach, apple, avocado, cucumber, all the different green fruits and vegetables. These did contribute to the green but the matcha really made it pop.
- 1 cup coconut milk
- 1/2 ripe avocado
- 1 cup of spinach
- 1 Tablespoon matcha powder
- 2 scoops protein powder (Arbonne is my preference)
- In a blender, combine all ingredients until smooth. The end!
