Matcha and Green Smoothies: The Perfect Marriage!

Template, Women's Wellness

matcha-miracle Woo Hoo! I am excited to announce my 5th book: The Matcha Miracle! This book was so fun to create, from researching the many health benefits of matcha green tea to taste-testing fun and delicious recipes.

I would love to introduce you to my most favorite way to use matcha every single day. It’s all about adding matcha green tea powder to green smoothies. Could you use more energy? Are you looking for more of the right fuel for your body? Well look no further, because I have the simplest and most nutrient-dense solution that you can make at home in only ten minutes or less. And no — it’s not too good to be true!

I have been drinking green smoothies for the past seven years, and they have forever changed my life! It is one of the single most impactful habits that I do on a daily basis, takes less than ten minutes (including prep and cleanup), and doesn’t break the bank! The cost of a quart of green smoothie is approximately $2.50 — cheaper than a coffee at your favorite café. If you are like me, you are busy and need to find quick ways to get food prepared for the day. This ten minute daily habit is not only easy, but it provides me with twelve to fifteen servings of fruits and vegetables to start my day. This simple habit will increase your nutritional intake by 700% and provide more lasting, sustainable energy throughout the day. The benefits of what happens to our health when we massively and easily increase nutrition are very exciting! If that wasn’t already exciting enough, my newest addition to my smoothie routine is adding matcha green tea – doubling my antioxidant intake and providing even more benefits!

I was first introduced to matcha green tea by my co-author, and incredible health food junkie, Anna Zulaica. As an incredible chef, Anna is constantly finding new and healthy ingredients to add to her repertoire. When she began adding it to her daily regimen, I knew that I needed to learn more about this highly potent, unique green tea from Japan. In my research, as you will learn in my book, I discovered that matcha is one of the most powerful and beneficial antioxidants in the world. No wonder people have been drinking it for a thousand years! Matcha has incredible health benefits in just 1-2 teaspoons and is extremely easy to add to green smoothies every day. Get ready to boost energy, focus, and immunity with matcha!

You are going to love drinking matcha green smoothies, along with all of the other matcha recipes in my book, The Matcha Miracle! Matcha is going to kick your nutrition into HIGH gear! When shopping for matcha, make sure that it’s organic and high quality (at least kitchen-grade or café grade). I personally purchase my matcha tea on Amazon for a great price.

The next step to this habit is getting started! Luckily, this habit will be one of the easiest habits you ever do for yourself and your health. When making your daily matcha green smoothie, you can store it for up to 24 hours in the fridge. All you need is a blender and good ingredients that are available at any grocery store. It’s never been easier to find organic greens, frozen fruit and matcha green tea. Lastly, you need some delicious recipes. Below is my personal favorite matcha green smoothie recipe that I can’t wait for you to ENJOY!
