What is Matcha Green Energy Smoothie?

This delicious energy smoothie is packed with everything you need to start your day off right. The ingredients include coconut milk, green tea matcha, spinach, blueberries, almonds and monkfruit erythritol blend.

Is matcha good for energy?

Natural caffeine found in matcha gives you a boost of calm energy while leaving out the jitters and mid-afternoon crash.

Is matcha caffeine stronger than coffee?

Matcha only has a fraction of the caffeine that coffee has. This gives you a feeling of alertness and concentration without feeling burnt out a few hours later.

Where matcha comes from?

Matcha is finely ground powder from green tea leaves that are grown specifically in the shade which produces more l-theanine and caffeine. The l-theanine in the tea leaves is what promotes relaxation, reduces stress and improves sleep as well as boosts concentration and alertness.

What ingredients do I need and how do you make matcha energy smoothie?

  • Coconut Milk – refrigerated carton found in most supermarkets. Can also replace with your choice of milk or milk alternatives.
  • Matcha Powder – also known as green tea powder, you can use culinary grade matcha or ceremonial grade matcha.  The latter produces a very green vibrancy but is also much more pricey.
  • Spinach – an extremely nutrient-rich vegetable containing high amounts of vitamin C, K, iron and calcium.
  • Sweetener – Monkfruit Erythritol Blend, sugar or sweetener of choice.
  • Blueberries – known to be the king of antioxidant foods which help protect against aging and diseases.
  • Almonds – low in carbs but high in healthy fats and protein.  They’re also known to increase the feeling of fullness thus increasing weight loss.

Add all ingredients into a high-powered blender and blend until smooth.  Feel free to customize this smoothie by adding bananas, strawberries, blackberries, mangoes, or even oranges.
