Morning Matcha Smoothie 

Hi Everyone!

Today I am excited to share a recipe for an energizing and refreshing smoothie with you- my morning matcha smoothie. 🙂 This drink uses matcha, a type of green tea, as its key ingredient, to add a boost of caffeine that won’t make you crash and a nice flavor. Matcha, which has become increasingly more popular in the health food industry in the past few years, is a great substitute for coffee as it is high in antioxidants and promotes relaxation. While I have been enjoying matcha tea lattes (recipe coming soon!) the warmer weather has been great for these smoothies.

Now, you all know how much I love to blend up smoothies for a quick breakfast with a nutrient punch, and as summer gets closer and spring schedules become busier, this is the obvious choice for a healthy breakfast or meal on the go. While I love my Raspberry Almond Breakfast Smoothie (recipe on the blog!) and other favorites, this matcha smoothie is a great way to switch things up. The addition of a frozen banana adds creaminess and natural sweetness, and the cinnamon adds a nice flavor boost to balance out your blood sugar.

So, without further ado, please enjoy this morning matcha green smoothie and stay tuned for more refreshing summer recipes coming soon!
