I have a new smoothie addiction. For months I was hooked on the closest thing you’ll ever get to a Strawberry Milkshake! This concoction is made with frozen cauliflower, butternut squash, protein powder and 2 strawberries with water. Totally does the trick when you want something creamy, rich and filling.
Recently I discovered Match Green Tea Powder and the many smoothies, desserts and foods you can create around this Superfood. Matcha has for centuries been considered the most special of the green teas. Zen Buddhist monks used to drink it to get into deeper meditative states, it has been consumed to boost health, longevity, and boost antioxidant activity. You can prepare match tea by dissolving the powder with a little bit of hot water, stir it until it’s smooth and then add the rest of the hot (not boiling) water. Match tea utilizes only the young green leaves and contains more antioxidants (especially ECGC) than most Superfoods. It will energize you without crashing you, boost your digestion, can lower cholesterol, and relaxes your mind. It’s also shown to have some fat burning effects if consumed on a regular basis, along with a clean diet.
Here are two of my favorite ways to enjoy Matcha Green Tea Powder (by the way, this Superfood will cost you a bit…):
Matcha Green Tea Protein Smoothie
- 1 Cup Spinach
- 1 scoop Protein Powder (my favorite right now is Orgain Vegan Vanilla)
- 1/2 avocado
- 1 teaspoon Matcha Green Tea Powder
- Almond Milk (unsweetened vanilla)
Matcha Green Tea Pudding
Use the recipe above, but less liquid and add a bit of frozen cauliflower, which will make the consistency creamy and rich.
Enjoy and get younger with every sip
