I can’t get enough of this smoothie lately. It is creamy, delicious, filling and as a major bonus- especially for those of you who have a hard time rolling out of bed in the morning- the caffeine boost. Next week I’m going to be going into more detail about what exactly Matcha is and how you can use it to boost your diet but I was feeling festive and wanted you guys to have something green to drink today before you get that food coloring green beer in your bellies 😉 To sum it up, matcha is a type of green tea where the whole leaf is ground and consumed, rather than just steeping and discarding the leaves as we do with most other teas. This means you are getting more of the benefits that this powerful plant has to offer, including more caffeine, minus the jitters that coffee can sometimes give. For more on the benefits of Matcha, make sure to check out my post 5 Things to Know About Matcha! For now, get your leprechaun on with this delicious treat!Print
