Energizing Chocolate Matcha Green Tea Smoothie
I have another delicious smoothie to add to your repertoire with this Chocolate Matcha Green Tea Smoothie.
I for one am excited!
I love my smoothies and we tend to have one every morning with breakfast.
They are such a great vehicle for transporting lots of nutrients in one handy hit, and easy to sip on over the course of an hour or so, which let's face it, is how long it's going to take to guzzle something down when you have little ones at home.
And cold coffee....not so great.
You are going to need:
- Dairy-Free Milk
- Peanut Butter
- Matcha Powder
- Chia Seeds
What Potential Health Benefits can there be in a Chocolate Matcha Smoothie?
There are lots of potential health benefits associated with consuming matcha:
- Matcha has lots of antioxidants for extra focus and energy;
- Cacao contains calcium, magnesium and iron. Helps regulate blood sugar and support weight loss;
- Bananas have lots of potassium;
- Dates have lots of fiber;
- Avocados contain all those heart-healthy fats
Plus it tastes delicious and will curb those sweet cravings and those coffee cravings in the mid-afternoon, providing you with a much more stable and longer-lasting source of energy.
Sounds good right?
Well go ahead and dig in, you could be enjoying a delicious Cacao Matcha Smoothie in about five minutes.
How To Make A Matcha Smoothie?
Gather all your ingredients and add them to a high-speed blender along with some ice and blend until smooth.
I add one teaspoon of matcha powder to this smoothie, and it has a very subtle taste, but you can always add a little more if you want more of a matcha punch.
Unless you don't have any matcha green tea powder in the cupboard, in which case I would pop on over to Amazon or your local bulk bin store and see what they have on offer.
Sharing With The Kids?
If you want to share your matcha green tea smoothie with your kids, I would leave out the matcha powder until the end.
Make the smoothie without matcha, pour out their smoothies and then pop in 1/2 tsp matcha powder to the remainder of the smoothie mix and blend for yourself.
I do this simply because of the caffeine content in matcha.
