Matcha Smoothie

Some mornings you are in the mood for a chocolate-avocado-strawberry smoothie, that’s they way chocolate cravings go… Other mornings you wake up low on energy, but full of life-changing ambitions and you are craving the uplifting vitality that only matcha has to offer. So, take it, blend it, and get on your busy way in less than 5 minutes. Not only will you hit the ground running, you will be able to concentrate all throughout the day. Hardly a bad deal from a smoothie breakfast!

We hear you asking, what is matcha? What are the benefits? And what am I missing out on if I don’t drink it? To start, matcha is nothing more than powdered green tea – a great coffee alternative that wakes up your brain and keeps you focused without a jittery side effect. Secondly, it comes from Japan and it is vibrantly rich in chlorophyll, fiber and antioxidants. It is said that one glass of matcha is equivalent to 10 mugs of green tea, and since we are consuming the entire green tea leaves, you are getting so much more nutrition for the money. If you have never tried it, now is the time, because what you are missing out on is the mood enhancing qualities combined with the unique flavor. You can also add a teaspoon to your scramble, or curry…

If you get caught on a smoothie kick and need a bit of inspiration to keep breakfast exciting, here are 15 more smoothie recipes to get you drinking all colors of the natural rainbow.
