In keeping with the green theme…here is a shamrock inspired Mango Matcha Green Smoothie!
I feel like I’m late to the matcha party, but I just discovered it since being pregnant and giving up my morning cup of jo. Matcha is a powdered form of green tea. It is the only form of green tea that uses the whole tea leaf giving it more antioxidant power than traditionally brewed green tea. The most famous polyphenol found in matcha is EGCG (epigallo-catechin-gallate), which shows promise for lowering cancer and heart disease risk. Matcha does contain caffeine, but far less than a cup of coffee.
Matcha is usually mixed into hot water or steamed milk for a morning drink, but I blended it into a smoothie! I found matcha powder at Whole Foods in the tea section. The one I bought was slightly sweetened. If you have unsweetened matcha, try blending in a few dates if needed for sweetness.
- Blend and enjoy 🙂
