Frequently Asked Questions

Is matcha good for energy?

Yes, matcha is an excellent choice for a sustainable energy boost. Its natural caffeine content provides a sense of alertness and increased energy without the typical side effects like jitters or a sudden crash, thanks to the presence of L-theanine, which promotes a calm and focused energy.

What is the difference between matcha powder and green tea powder?

Matcha powder and green tea powder are similar but not exactly the same. Matcha powder has a much stronger flavor and is the better choice when you want the matcha flavors to shine through in your recipes.

Can I use regular milk instead of coconut milk?

Yes, you can substitute regular milk for coconut milk if you prefer a different flavor.

Is matcha powder the same as green tea bags?

No, matcha powder is more concentrated and provides a stronger flavor compared to green tea bags.

Storage Tips

For optimal freshness, it’s best to enjoy right after preparation. However, you can preserve your smoothie for a limited time by placing it in the fridge.
