When it comes to matcha, there’s no wrong way to enjoy it. Matcha green tea is particularly delicious blended into a hot cup of water, poured into smoothies, or added to desserts and pastries. Matcha is one of those star ingredients that can do no wrong. In addition to being delicious and absolutely stunning, it gives you a calm and steady boost of energy and focus that coffee simply can’t compete with.

That’s one of the reasons we love these delicious and Paleo-friendly Matcha Bliss Balls. Matcha contains L-theanine, which promotes a steady, calm alertness. Matcha is naturally caffeinated, but the presence of L-theanine mitigates the energy crash that’s usually associated with a coffee buzz.
Of course, there’s more than just matcha in these delicious bliss balls. They also contain healthy fats from coconut and almond flour, protein from our hydrolyzed Collagen Peptides, and antioxidants from cacao nibs (and, of course, the antioxidants in matcha). They’re sweetened only with dates and maple syrup, making them a wholesomely sweet treat.
