I've shared my Super Smoothie Recipe before, but I want to share a smoothie that I make every once in a while that is more of a treat.
The first time I ever tried a matcha green tea smoothie was at my previous gym and I was immediately hooked. Match green tea powder is full of antioxidants and it's an energy booster. Because I knew the matcha powder the gym used had added sugars, and I didn't want to have to spend $5 a day on smoothies I decided to look into making my own. Here is the recipe I came up with:
1 Teaspoon Organic Matcha Green Tea powder (I order mine online from Vitacost)
2 Frozen Bananas
Add all the blender and blend until smooth.
The amount of almond milk you use depends on the consistency you want. You can use less, and get almost a matcha green tea banana ice cream, or use more to get a regular smoothie consistency. I would start with 1/4 cup and add little by little from there. Usually about a half cup is good. I use PLAIN almond milk for this. The bananas make it perfectly sweet, vanilla almond milk would make it too sweet for my liking.
There you have it. A simple, delicious and very healthy smoothie treat!
What's your favorite kind of smoothie?
