Matcha green tea smoothie
This icy cold matcha kale smoothie really hits the spot. Matcha, (to me) is as good of a pick-me-up as coffee. Plus I was able to sneak some greens in here. The kale taste is almost barely noticeable because, Jack, our resident smoothie-lover is not exactly a green juice guy. At least, not yet.
Creamy bananas and sweet ripe peaches help make this smoothie a little more, well, smooth. In the wintertime, I think I’ll try subbing in ripe pears.
And I almost forgot – ginger. It’s totally optional, but adds a nice (healthy) kick. Grate in a little fresh ginger or splash in some ginger juice.
About matcha: Unlike steeped tea, matcha is made by grinding the entire tea leaf into a fine powder. Because you consume the whole leaf, it has approximately 10x more nutrients than regular green tea.
We, of course, love it because it tastes good! If you’ve never had it, this smoothie is an easy way to give it a try. Or have a look at our other Matcha Recipes.
